Bobcad initial download???

Postby Charley Davidson » Tue Jul 28, 2015 9:18 pm

In todays multi device computer world you would think a license would cover at least 2 devices. Would downloading to an external drive allow me to use it on 2 different devices?

It would be nice if Al responded to posts on PlasmaSpider with the regularity that the Bobcad salesmen bug you on the phone.

As I recall from when I talked to them, they do charge extra for a second seat. However, if you press them they will act like they are doing you a huge favor and include a second seat at a discounted price.

By the way, they are definitely persistent.
I inquired with Bobcad when I was shopping for software for my mill over three years ago.
After getting fed up with all the calls, I eventually had to get very rude with the salesman.
The calls have finally slowed down to about one every six months.

i'd think that would only work on 2 identical computers since it installs drivers on c drive
that said... i should give you the version that came with my table, it's pretty worthless software in my opinion :mrgreen:

I'm learning my way around in it but I'm with you on it' being worthless, I'd take you up on your offer to give it to me but not sure it's worth the transfer fee lol
