Hi Werner,

I have the same type of problem, I used to use a registered copy of 2.2.3.
with the hardware key (the license belonged to the centre where I work). I
had installed a copy at work one on my notebook and one at home and I used
to just carry the hardware key around with me and put it on the copy I was
using at that time. This of course is not possible with version 3!!!!
