    Deactivating Home PC to Work on Different PC

    I've always had a dongle before, but I wanted to be able to use a PC at work and one at home, and so I switched to the online activation. Now that I've done so, I don't seem to be able to deactivate my Home PC while I'm at work.  With Adobe, this works flawlessly, but it seems that with Avid I need to actually de-activate my Home PC while I'm actually, physically at home. Is this right?  If so, this seems like a pretty terrible validation system.  Maybe the worst I've ever seen. So, is there a way to disable a different PC while I'm not sitting in front of it?

    With the Avid Link app you should be able to activate or deactivate a license from anywhere.

    If that's not working you should create a case on the MyAvid support portal and someone will get to you asap.

    https://www.avid.com/US/support/support-contact  If you don't get anywhere with them, send an email to Chris Bové (chris.bove@avid.com) and Raff Condalor (raff.condalor@avid.com).  They are Avid's customer advocates, and can help you.
