Does the purchase of a single license entitle the purchaser to install the software on, for example, on one office computer and one portable?

Yes, we do permit a single authorized end user to make a second copy for end user's exclusive use on a portable computer as long as only one (1) copy of the purchased software is in use at any one (1) time. No other end user may use the software under the same license at the same time for any other purpose.
