How important is it to download XF on the proper account?

#1
I'll be managing up to three separate XenForo licenses for three different web sites soon. I'm already managing one, so I usually have the current version of XF sitting around on my HDD somewhere.

Is it important that I download a fresh copy while logged into the account associated with the domain I'm making that install on, or is it safe to just use whatever download I happen to have sitting around at the time? That is, is a download dynamically tied to a specific license?

The last I knew the hash key for each XenForo copy is different (as far as I know). And of course the license number is different as well.

But other than this, I don't imagine it will be a problem provided you use the right version for each copy of XenForo you own. XenForo seems to only associate the domain name with the license (as far as I know).

I however do download the most current when installing. Only because there has been one or two times in the past when Mike updated something in the main package (small & minor bug fixes).

The respective license should be used on the corresponding URL.
Yeah, but it's such a pain to rename each one with a twd_, apple_ or mustang_ prefix and then keep 3 packages of the same software there. To bad you can't utilize the validation token (and compare it against the registered domain) for just one package.

You could have a folder for each of your websites in which you store them in. Keeps things organised.

Sounds like legal talk to me. Unless the different licenses have different official add-ons tied to them, I reckon the contents of the ZIPs are exactly the same, seeing as you don't actually have to install a license on your forum nor that it seems to "phone home". Having a license key in this case is just a proof of purchase.

Seeing as you have access to 3 licenses, compare 2 of them together and you'll either be able to confirm my claim or not :p
