Multi-seat licenses

A multi-seat license is a singular, umbrella license that contains multiple authorizations, called seats.

  • Each individual seat is equivalent to licensing for a single computer.
  • For example, a 10-seat license allows Live to be installed and authorized on up to 10 machines at once.

Account Registration

A multi-seat license is registered to a single user account. The email address used to register the license should be an organizational address, accessible by more than one person in case the primary contact changes, such as This account should be accessible to the team or person responsible for installing and maintaining Live on your organization’s computers.

For more information on how many seats are included in your organization's multi-seat license, please get in touch with your teacher and/or IT administrator.
