Emulator 2 has come out with the subscription model because in a subscription model you can get all of the updates/upgrades for free in the future if any. In the older version, with one time pay, you would not be able to get all the upgrades/updates for free. You will also be able to sync with the Template Store where hundreds of pre-made and pre-mapped templates will reside for you to access from within the software at anytime. See Template Store page for more info.

You can install the software on maximum of 2 computers for non-concurrent use. When we say “non-concurrent use” that means you cannot run the software on 2 computers at the same given point of time, the 2nd installation is like a backup or for a standby system.
