I want to share X-Plane 11 with my kids on different computers, but I want to avoid accidentally running two at the same time. Previously the USB key has been a convenient way to "check out" to one person at a time. Some of our computers do not have DVD drives.

Since the USB keys aren't available yet for 11, is there some other way to avoid running two instances at once?

Unfortunately I don't think we plan to bring back the USB home use key for X-Plane 11 at this time.

I think in this case there is some "grace period" where a small overlap would be ok. For example, there is a 7 day period where you are not locked out of the sim if your product key cannot be verified (kind of like an offline mode in some games). I believe if the key is used occasionally at the same time, it will not lock you out either. For a lot of simultaneous use or for networking multiple computers we do request purchasing additional keys. :)
