Your Venue is "site licensed", not "computer licensed". Thatís good news. You may install your BOW! System on as many computers as you require to best serve your venue, as often as you wish or as required by upgrades to you computer equipment. Itís not "piracy" and doesnít require any additional licenses.
Simple changes, like adding more RAM memory or a new video card or a new display monitor have no effect on your BOW! installation, except to make your enterprise run faster and better.
Large Component Upgrades, like a new motherboard or CPU, will most likely shake things up a bit. But as long as your new hardware functions as expected your BOW! System will not have been effected.
Upgrading your Operating System, from say Windows XP to Windows Vista, will not change your BOW! System. However, if you are using more than one computer in a BOW! Network, that upgrade must be done on every computer and all the network "computer names" should remain the same.
A change in hard drive, no matter which computer, does require a specific and exact process to re-create your BOW! system on the new storage device.
