Each license allows for two simultaneous computer installations. Advanced Software purchases also allow for two simultaneous computer installations per license.

About Registration of Project Designer

Computers running Project Designer Software must be registered to a CarveWright Customer Account within 30 days of installation. A Customer Account is separate from the Store Account that you may have created to purchase your machine. Using the same Username & Password for both accounts cuts down on confusion. Write down this information and put it where you can find it, as you WILL need it again.

The Customer Account is where you register your machines, computers, and licenses for software, patterns, projects & subscriptions. Customer accounts are created once a customer registers their CarveWright Machine. You will only ever need ONE customer account. Licenses, sent as Software Serial Keys (or activation codes) via email, only need to be activated once to your Customer Account, where the information is stored on a secure server and can be retrieved, if needed.

Registration of the Project Designer Software and your computer is easiest done through the software itself by selecting Register Online (internet connection required), but there are other options. If you have never created a Customer Account before, you will need to do that only the first time. Upon installation of your second computer and there afterwards, you will always select the option that says “I Already Have an Account”.

Computers are registered into your Customer Account and identified by their individual hard-drive computer ID. Sometimes those computer IDs change and the computer needs to be re-registered. Registered computers that are no longer valid can easily be deactivated by LHR with an email or phone call identifying which computer to deactivate. This frees up licenses for a re-installation.
