Kind of OT...

If I buy a copy of Nikon Capture, for instance, for my desktop PC, is it OK
to also install it on my laptop? Will it work and register OK?

And along the same lines: if the desktop machine I bought came loaded with
bundled software, is it acceptable to load selected software on the notebook
(if I could figure out how)?

Is there a "standard" policy on this kind of thing, or do you have to
contact the manufacturer on a case-by-case basis? (This is all for
home/personal use, BTW)

Good shooting,
Bob Scott

Not really. Read the license. You can probably find the license, or a
contact email address on Nikon's web site.

You need to read their license agreement. There's no "standard policy",
but most software vendors do not allow installation on more than one
machine if you've just bought one copy. (Which doesn't mean that people
don't do it.)
