Running light burn when not connected to laser

can you work in light burn for design without it being connected to a laser? N00b here

Answer: Yes of course

When I replaced my HDD i restored from my system backup and not I get an error message saying my product key has expired. Screen Shot 2020-08-01 at 11.15.51 AM

Does the license expire? It was a gift from 2018 and I have the license code. So what do i do now? appreciate any help you can give me.

Might need to contact @LightBurn
My understanding is licenses are erquired to be renewed to keep new updates coming
But your current version should be still usable (might be wrong)
However on a restore, the licensing might have freaked out
