I plan to run Epic Orchestra on my main Logic Pro 9 computer (a early 2009 MacPro with 12 Gigs RAM) and some additional VI's (NON-Vienna!) using my old Powermac G5 as a slave that feeds into Logic9, via VEPro. How many dongles do I need to purchase? Thanks!

2.  If you also decided to host your epic orchestra from your slave machine you would only need 1.  Because all you would be doing from you DAW machine is "connecting" to VE Pro.  You wouldn't actually be loading samples.  Perhaps try it that way and if it doesn't have the horsepower to handle it, then spend the additional money for a second key and split them up.

Just an idea.

Amazingly (!) I'm still confused. If I want to load third party VI's into VEPro on a slave machine, AND Epic Orchestra on my main machine (also via VEPro), do I need 1 dongle or 2? I ask because I'm not clear if I'm running VEPro with third party VI's on the slave but no other Vienna instruments whether a dongle is required for the slave...Thanks and apologies for my continued confusion :-)...

you need two, with the appropriate license downloaded onto the one inserted in the machine you need to use that instrument or software on.

If you have two machines, you won't need more than two dongles, all you need do is organize them via the license manager.

You get 3 licenses with VE, but to use on three slaves you need three dongles. the instrument has but one license. I think it's better to use the master for just the DAW and the slave for the heavy lifting. in either case, with Vienna instruments on two computers = two licenses/two dongles. Apparently on the master, with no other license required, you do simply connect to the server on the slaves.
