Just installed PB2017 onto our Isolated LAN.  Generated the Client Request for offline licensing.  But it is an encrypted string!  What exact information does that string contain?  Our security folks are likely to have a huge problem with this.

It contains the name of the product you installed, the email address and password you entered, and a hardware ID.  It's the same basically as PB 11.x and 12.x except it also contains your email address and password so it can be associated with your subscription.

Thanks.  They winced and complained, but eventually let it go through.  Can't guarantee they always will.   Next problem... 

One of the supposed "features" is to be able to have an office desktop and a travel laptop utilize the same license.  I'm trying to set up my travel laptop so it's ready to bolt out the door at a moments notice.  Again, this will be an offline activation.  But it is not allowing me to add it to the license.  Isn't it supposed too?  How's this going to work?
