    I'm looking to install some of my Blizzard games on my PC, however, I don't want to buy a new copy.

    I know some of the games have a multiplayer install, but I was wondering, can I install both of them with the full version and as long as I'm not online with both at the same time not get my CD-key banned?

    it shouldn't be a problem. you can't log onto two computers with the same cd-key at the same time anyway. since you can log onto an account from any computer, your cd-key should be safe.

    Simultaneous multiplayer can work actually, but I'm sure it's risky.

    Hmm... what about say a LAN game? In that case, it should never leave the network. Would the other game not allow it to run, or would Blizzard never know because I never logged in to Battle.net?

    Ugh. LAN games work fine.

    Battle.net with starcraft on the same key also works. War 3 does not. Diablo 2 does not.
