    My cousin can mail me a copy of Parallels.
    I am wondering how many codes are in there.
    Or is it just a one time use so i can't use the Parallels.
    I think he bought the most cheap Parallels copy so not the family pack one.

    Thanks :eek:

    He can transfer the whole Parallels license to you -- meaning he gives you the disc and the product key, and he deletes it from his system. Unless he bought multiple licenses, you can't just legally install it on your computer and also on his computer....

    Does your cousin currently use Parallels? If so, then you will not be able to legally use the same activation code. I don't know if it will even let you if you try.

    So there really is no point of my cousin sending it to me cause it wont 'work and buying another activation key is the same price as the whole product itself.

    There is no point in him sending it to you. When you buy it, you get to download it.
