More Information:

You can activate CorelDRAW X6 with one product key a total of 5 times.

If you have activated your CorelDRAW X6 with your product key a total of 5 times already, you can’t activate it anymore. You may experience one of the following situations:

1) The software says, “the product key is invalid” during the CorelDRAW X6 installation, or

2) After 30 days of activation, a warning message will pop up saying: “the trial period is over”. This will be followed by a software lock out.

Section 2 –
In regards to installing CorelDRAW on more than one computer: The Corel EULA says you can install CorelDRAW on up to three PCs, but you can only use it on one (1) system at any given time

In a corporate environment it is necessary to provide each employee with a different serial number or product key, or to buy corporate licensing to allow any specific number of licenses to be used at the same time (“Concurrent Use”). It is illegal to allow two or more employees to use the same license number at the same time.

Sam and Simone need their own license (product key). Sam can install CorelDRAW X on his PC at the office and on his laptop PC at home because he is either working from the office OR from home. Similarly, Simone can install CorelDRAW (using her own license / product key) also on up to 3 systems; at the office, on her laptop and at home; she only use CorelDRAW on one of those 3 systems at any given time.

Section 3 –
CorelDRAW automatically updates the number of installations available to its product key or serial number, each time a user installs or uninstalls CorelDRAW from their systems. For example, Sam decides to remove CorelDRAW  from his home laptop PC. After it is uninstalled from the home laptop PC, his product key or serial number is registered to only one PC (the one at the office) listed. So, he has two installations available with this product key.
