I'm currently considering purchasing your own program for creating my own social event photo booth.
During testing I found out that the application can be run either in booth or kiosk mode. There is a possibility to run each mode one two separate PCs to create photo taking screen and Social media screen. Did you test both running on one PC? Application is not able to run two times in my WIN10 testing environment.
Do you have some workflow how to run both mode on one PC?
Is there any licensing problem if I choose to create virtual machine on PC and simulate second PC ??

Thank you in for your reply

    NO, that is not how it is set up to work.

    1) You can have ONE computer running the photo booth mode
    2) and a second computer running Kiosk mode
    ... this gives you separate stations for the guest/users to do
    two different functions without tying up the photo booth service

    OR you can have the photo booth do it all during each session
    for the guest/users to take the photos and THEN spend additional time
    in the booth for any social media they choose for uploading....
    ...this would slow down the photo booth usage for people
    who only want to take photos.
    But it works way well for a booth that is not used at events where
    the people are lined up to use the photo booth (like weddings, parties, etc)
    but for use at a Bar, Mall, or any single use type set up.

    YES it has been well tested in all types of set ups and
    can do what is needed for each one depending how your booth will be used.

    I figured out the way. I installed DSLR for nikon application and second Sparkbooth 5 application. DSLR for Nikon is getting photos in booth mode on one touch screen and Sparkbooth 5 is showing them in second touch screen in kiosk mode on the same PC.
    If I buy DSLR license, can I use it to activate both applications?

    A DSLR license comes with (3) Activations that can be used to Activate/Install the software on up to 3 different computers.
