Once you completed the Network Operations or Computer Science program, of course, you will no longer be able to download new software.

Can I install my software on two computers at once?
Yes, as long as you are the owner of both computers and both are being used for instructional purposes. NOTE: If you require another key for a product you must contact your program administrator.

I have a new computer now, how can I re-install my software?
You are allowed to install the software more than once based on the discretion of the program administrator and the software distribution method chosen.
If my download times out or I get disconnected, how do I continue my software download and installation?
If you were in the middle of downloading the software itself, there will be a shortcut icon saved on your desktop that will allow you to resume your download. Double-click on the icon to begin again. If you don't see the shortcut icon on your computer desktop, you can use the "Request Re-Install" function in the Support section.
Is the software permanently unlocked by the license (or "key")?
No - the key allows you to install the software once. Also, if you need to re-install the software, you will need to contact your program administrator.
