Re-installing/re-activating NIS on new pc
I currently have a single PC licence for NIS, with "no remaining activations". I originally purchased NIS 2007 a few years ago and had it upgraded free of charge to NIS 2009 last year (i.e. via an automatic download as part of the annual subscription). I shall soon be upgrading to NIS 2010 under the same arrangement.
So, if at some time in the future I scrap my existing pc and buy a new one, will I be able to reinstall NIS on that new machine under my existing licence, or will I have to buy a new licence as the version of NIS that I have is a single PC licence with no remaining activations? (I can see the potential here for paying twice unless I change to a new PC around the end of my licence year. Obviously, I could time it to replace at the end of the licence year, but what if I am forced to replace the pc part way through the year - e.g. if it fails and cannot be repaired economically).
