You can install and register Sibelius on two computers, so on your second computer you can simply install and run Sibelius, enter your Sibelius serial number and register online.

If your new computer is replacing an old computer, be sure to unregister Sibelius from the old computer first. You do this by opening Sibelius on the old computer and going to the Help menu and choosing Unregister Sibelius. That will free up a licence and allow Sibelius to be registered on your new computer.

You can see the various upgrade options available at:
