I know you can share one software among about two or more computers, can anyone please explain to me how is done and the concepts of how it works.

Hello Uranum. I am unable to understand your request. Are you referring to P2P Softwares (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer)?

Hello Uranum. In a word, it is not possible. Your sister will have to install the software on her computer to operate it. I guess you confused this with Remote Assistance (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/remoteassist/default.mspx).

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. :(

Goku is correct and all Adobe product license agreements can be viewed here.

Having read the license agreement, and to try to explain without all the legalese and mind numbing different clauses.
In short you can install the product on one computer only. However you may also install this software on another portable machine providing the software is not in use at the same time on both machines.

This is quite common in "End User License Agreements" (EULA)
As a for instance, I have some music software for writing music, I can use it on my desktop, or I can use it on my laptop, but I am not supposed to be using both together, neither am I allowed to let someone else use one, while I am using the other.

In your case, your sister will have to buy her own version or copy, to stay strictly in terms of both the EULA, and the law.

Penalties for breaking these copyright laws can be quite high.
