Here's the deal.  I am going on vacation to my parent's house in a few weeks, but would like to play WoW on their computer.  Can I take my disks and install it on my dad's computer and play?  I figure that I won't be violating the license because I will only be using it on one computer at any one time and I will uninstall it when I leave.  Does this work?  Or does WoW install your character data on your PC so that I can't do this?

Thanks!

I am almost 100% sure that WOW doesnt limit accounts to IP addresses, so you'll be fine.

If two people tried to access the same account at once though, you'd have  some problems.

The simple answer - yes, you'll have no problems whatsoever playing WoW on two different computers at the same IP address (or two PCs at one house).

Just remember - you have to have two different accounts to play two copies of WoW (obviously).

Yes, I do it all the time. THe only downside is you have to download the patches twice. So be prepared for a looong install smile

If it downloads an actual file (which is generally what happens with the larger patches), I just copy the file from one computer to the other.

You can check the root of the WoW folder for the files; I have all of them on my spare PC so I can burn them onto a CD if needed.  I also delete them off the computers to save disk space (its 151mb!!).

[edit] here are the files thus far:

WoW-1.1.1-patch-enUS.exe
WoW-1.1.2-to-1.2.1-patch-enUS.exe
WoW-1.2.4-to-1.3.0-enUS-patch.exe
WoW-1.3.1.4297-to-1.4.0-enUS-patch.exe
