Does SL8 use the new activation system or do I still need a physical eLicenser for my second computer?
SL8 still requires elicenser at this time.
But can I activate the second computer via software ELC or do I need another dongle?
No need to ‘activate’ on a second computer - you can install on any number of other computers. But you can only run one instance at a time i.e. on the computer with the (your existing) dongle plugged in.
Thanks for confirming no machine activation. I can’t wait for version 9.
