To keep it simple, can I buy and install one foxtrot pro on my desktop to
search just that computer, and another foxtrot pro to buy and install on my
laptop, to search just that computer?

Thanks for any help with this. CTM has not been very responsive.

So far as I can tell, the license is not too restrictive and no checking
is done. I run FoxTrot Pro on my laptop, where I do 90% of my
searching, and also on my desktop, which I use infrequently. I don't
run them at the same time, so I've always assumed I am within the terms
of the license.

So there is no technical obstacle and I do not believe there is a
commercial obstacle.

David.

i guess what i mean is does the same foxtrot installation search both the
laptop and the desktop at the same time? For example, if I want to find all
files with the word "elephant" in them, can I just search once and foxtrot
examines all files in both the laptop and the desktop? thanks

Dear list,

Yes we are a bit behind on support these days, this time influenza helping, apologies for this.

Single user means a single computer running FoxTrot Pro (including background indexing) at any given time. So if you use FoxTrot Personal or Pro on two separate computers, only one of which has an indexer (background indexing) and/or FoxTrot Pro application open at any given time, that is OK with us.

If you need to be able to use both simultaneously, a second license is in order.

As a hint, we do point out that our pricing structure has been designed so that the cost of a second single license (EUR 99) equates to the upgrade cost of the first single license to a 5 station multi-user license, with a substantial bonus: the ability to perform client-server cross-searching (peer to peer) across mutually shared folders indexed by FoxTrot Pro. This allows simultaneous, one-stop searches of both machines and consolidated results in either one as long as the other volume is also shared and mounted using the systems File Sharing feature.

To step up to this functionality, use the FoxTrot application menu’s Step Up functionality for best results.

Kind regards,

jean michel/ctm qa

My problem is that I have already purchased TWO foxtrot pros. The one on my
desktop runs fine. But the one on my laptop does not. It will not accept
the registration code/authorization code. Help!
