I'm an Adobe trainer, so I need both versions depending on which version my
client has. I also have InDesign CS2, CS3, and CS4 on my computer too. (The
government is usually the last to upgrade...)

I meant that rebooting into Boot Camp and then using Parallels no longer
used up two activations. I don't know if it was a Frame upgrade (8 to 8.01
for example) or a Parallels (3 to 3.188 for example) that stopped the dual
activation--but I can switch between them now without issue.
