To be legal, you have to check the licensing for a specific product, but
most allow use on multiple computers with one user.

I am also a contractor and do what John does --- there are some
applications, like Snag-It, that I don't want to have to work without. If
I'm on-site at a client's, I'm not using the application on my own computer,
so I figure I am following the intent, if not necessarily the letter, of the
licensing agreement. I also remove the programs when the project is finished

Some software won't allow you to install multiple versions, but that's
program specific and depends on how they check licenses .

I'm curious about your use statement (attached)--I didn't know that one
could use software programs on multiple computers.

Question 1: How do you do that (in general)?
Question 2: Does use of Snagit follow the same method as #1?
