My biggest gripe with Scrivener (and Scapple) is how restrictive it is with the license. If I want to use it on my PC and my laptop, I need to deactivate it from my PC first before I can use it on my laptop. It's so annoying! I shouldn't have to do that when I'm the only one using my PC and laptop, and I certainly don't want to buy another license just so I don't have to juggle my existing license back and forth!

But regardless, having those programs on Steam wouldn't be such a bad idea, imo.

you get the point.
If I've guessed right, the solution is to install the software on the LOCAL drive not the USB. I think that's the official position of L&L anyway.

I honestly don't remember what I could've done wrong the first time I tried it about a year ago, but it seems like I can use the same licence for both my PC and laptop. I hope it won't screw me over when I use it in another country. Thanks for the support, guys.
I wonder if I could use it at work as well? Would be very useful.
You could install a single copy of Scrivener at your workplace provided you take steps to ensure you are the only person using it (assuming your workplace is a shared office; if you have an office to yourself with multiple computers only used by you, then a single licence would cover you for that).
