I have Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2019 on my Desktop at home, I only have one file.
I have to travel and want to use Personal Plus on my laptop with the file.

Is this possible?  I'm technically only using one occurrance of Recon as I can't be in two places at a time.

Far too rational for Reckon, Michael - they insist it’s only licensed for 1 machine. Try by all means, but don’t think it’ll work

Is there an easy way to disable the installation on my desktop pc rather than uninstall it each time I travel and use my laptop

Hi Gerry
Will this work with a standalone version or subscription or either?

I Have found that when I used the same installation key for the installation on my laptop, and put my Reckon file in the Dropbox folder, I could open the same folder on the Reckon installation on the laptop. I very rarely need to use this arrangement, but you could move the data file into Dropbox just before you travel, and make sure it works before you leave.
