Nope, only if you intend to install it on a completely different machine. That's when you have to purchase a new license. As long as you're putting it on Computer A and not Computer B, and Computer A was the original, you're good. And no problem; glad to help.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Yeah, I misunderstood the OP. Since I have never heard of software on a 'per install' basis, I assumed he meant he had bought a 3 License pack, which would allow him to install it to 3 computers simultaneously. Sorry for the confusion.
