Issue: "If the hardware configuration on this computer changes will I need to update the license with you? This laptop has a dock which uses a different video card when it is docked. I am having difficulties with other software licenses...which is why I am asking about your product..."
That's a good question. It could very well be a problem, since the program does look into the hardware configuration.
Solution: Please give it a try. Let me know the steps you take.
If you are asked to activate again, go ahead and fill in the details.
After using the program, close it. Then un-dock it.
Run the program again.
If at this point you are asked to activate the program again, please try it.
