Awhile back I purchased LR5 which is on my primary PC. I thought, but am not positive, that I am able to download that to a 2nd PC. Is that corect? How would I find out if I'm able to add to another computer? Thx.

The license allows you to install it on two computers as long as they are not used at the same time. Just download it and plug in your registration key.

yep, should be no problem. You actually install it on more computers, but only two copies can be activated at a time. so if you have one at work and one on your desktop at home you can have a third on your laptop for travel, just have to deactivate one of the others first. I think you can even have one PC and one Mac version if you have a Mac at home and PC at work etc.

I have LR5 on my main PC at home. When I purchased that it was an "upgrade" for around $79. I originally purchased the software years ago as I recall as LR3. At that time I downloaded LR3 onto my main PC as well as a Macbook Pro. The Macbook Pro is gone and I currently have another PC Laptop. From what I've gathered it sounds like I should be able to download LR5 onto that PC since LR5 is currently loaded onto 1 PC.

Lightroom does not use activation and therefore cannot be de-activated. The OP will have no trouble installing on a second (or third) machine, but yes, the licence does stipulate only two installs, to be used by one person.

You could install it on a hundred computers, but that would be an illegal violation of an agreement and 98 of them would be the same as pirated software.

Lightroom is different from the "standard" Photoshop in this respect. With Photoshop, you can only have the two "active" installs. In fact, if one of the two computers "dies", well, you can't just use the menu Help "Deactivate". When that happened to me I had to work with the Adobe Support Chat to get my dead installation de-activated.

With Lightroom, if one computer dies, you can install on another one with no problem, at least as of the last time I needed to do that (laptops have a way of biting the dust:) ). But as has been said, you should limit yourself to two computers.
