Yes, you can install it on at most 3 computers. For the burning time, it depends on your file size and the output settings you've selected. Just wait and all will be done.
If I purchase the program can I install it on the other computers in my home as well? Also, I am trying the free trial right now and it is taking hours and hours to burn. Is this normal? Thanks.
My experience with Aimersoft DVD Creator is very positive. My uncle gave me his computer that had a bunch of home movies in WMV format that I wanted to burn to DVD, so I tried the trial of this Aimersoft software and found it easy to use and the price right so I bought the paid program. It's fun to use and i especially enjoyed the video editing portion because you can really do a lot of cool things with home movies. i was able to convert and burn several DVD's in a short time to share with family so I rate this product as a winner!

Aimersoft DVD Creator is a great software, I encourage everyone to try the free trial because it's easy to use, and very fast, though I do have a fast computer so I might be a bit biased. I love the fact that you can adjust brightness and contrast and do some general editing to get the video just right. And the special effects are super cool as well. A+++ to Aimersoft!!
