Licensing for bootcamp

GeorgeCookGeorgeCook PEUniversity ✭✭✭

I see I can install xamarin twice. For me that works great, as I have my desktop at home, and I take my macbook to the cafe to work from time to time (yes, life is pretty idyllic). However, I suspect that soon I'll have to install xamarin also on windows, as I'll be doing windows based development. When that happens, the company I work for will likely buy a pro subscription; but in any case, will that share the license with the machine, or the os? becuase I love having the flexibility to go work at the drop of a hat, and wouldn't want to have to unlicense/relicense xamarin depending on whether I go to the cafe, or switch into windows (which hopefully wouldn't be too frequent :p ).

    I'm not 100% sure whether the license machine information includes OS identifiers, but if you have a legitimate reason to need more slots than are provided by default, just explain to your situation to [email protected] The intent of the licensing is to be per developer :)
