This question about QuickBooks licensing recently came in, so I thought I'd share it:
Q: I would like to upgrade to QuickBooks 2012. I can get two full copies of this for less then one copy with two licenses. Can that be done and will the two computers work together the same as if I got the one for 2? I will have two license numbers to put in to start. Would this be legal?
A: Based on my understanding of the QuickBooks licensing agreement, this game plan sounds perfectly legal (and economical!) to me.
Installing a separate, unique license on each of the two computers in question would not prohibit QuickBooks from working in multi-user mode and sharing a company file - that should work just fine.
