Can I re-install X-Plane 11 on a new computer (W-10) while keeping it on the original (also W-1-0) as a backup?

I'm getting a new computer soon and would like to copy X-Plane 11 to it.  I would like to have a copy on both devices without buying two licenses. Is this possible?

There should be no problems with a new computer. You can download or copy the content of X-Plane folder to a new computer. You can use the same product key for your personal computers. You will need to purchase another license if you run X-Plane on multiple computers at the same time.

You do not have to delete your old copy of X-Plane but you should purchase another license if you run X-Plane on multiple computers at the same time.
