Setting up my Pc driven Epson 4880 sublimation printer. Looks like it will be more cost effective to run the sawgrass driver through bootcamp off of my Mac Pro. I will probably need another copy of Cs6?
Sawgrass only supports Corel Draw and Photoshop for print output.
Plan to call Adobe Monday to find out if they consider this a third copy even though all my copies will be running on 2 computers.
Any suggestions or a better way.

Sorry I have had another thread on this topic but this is slightly more specific.

Uh, you realize Photoshop perpetual licenses are platform specific, right? If you have a Mac license, you can't use that you install and run a Windows version. The new Photoshop CC will allow cross-platform use and Lightroom's license is also cross platform.

For what it is worth if you do not wish to have a licence for each platform, you could do a cross grade swap see http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/order-product-platform-language-swap.html for the relevant Adobe kb article.

Thanks Mike and Jeff.
First it says you must give up all licensing rights to the platform you are transferring from.
The swap does not help me as I have 2 Macs,one in the studio and one in the office and cannot give up either.
I guess that means I really need the third license for the Pc.
Both Macs are still 10.6 so I am stuck at Lightroom 4 until I upgrade those os.
One thing I guess I could do is buy a Pc (You cannot imagine how much it pains me to say that)
Buy the third license for Cs6 and then get Lightroom 5 for the Pc as well and upgrade the Macs to LR5 when I get the newer OS.
All this mess because Sawgrass elected to not support Mac for their Sublijet IQ driver.

You can install a PS licence on two machines, so if you already have two licences, then one will cover your Macs. The other after converting, will do your PC.

Sorry I think I threw you a curve talking about a third license.
I have one license for Cs6 on two Mac computers. The max I believe.
If I want to install Cs6 on the Pc I have nothing to swap so will need to pay for the PC installation.
Correct?

You'd be fine with CS6 on a Creative Cloud subscription (assuming you can still sign up for that older version):

Yup. Or as DD suggests go for the CC subscription as that is platform agnostic. And at moment PS CC with LR included is only about $10 a month if you have PS CS3 or higher to upgrade from. $10 Deal starts soon and expires at end of year.
