    Let's assume someone has 3 active licenses. When XF 1.4.6 gets released, could this person download the upgrade package for his license #1 and use the same files to upgrade his forum #2 and #3?

    Each license is unique and the files from the relevant .zip must be uploaded to each one.

    But it looks like the files are the same for each package... if someone owns the license for all 3 sites, why it isn't possible to upgrade from a unique package?

    I'm asking this because some people have modified files in the XenForo core software... downloading each package and applying the changes manually to the files and then repacking the files to upload to the server and upgrade is a time loss operation.

    Looks can be deceiving.

    Files should never be manually edited or modified.

    I know there is obviously some code in XF to check whether if the package being installed is associated with the license/domain. And probably the installer notifies the XF team if it detects that it has been used on a domain not associated with the license of that package... but then when you investigate you'll determine that the other domain has a license associated, but was upgraded using the package of the other license which also belongs to the same customer. So no piracy at all.

    Is there going to be troubles for that customer even when he owns the license for both domains?
