Buying AE have some Q's

Im buying AE and I want to know if once it is installed on my computer if it can be transfered on to a different one. reason I ask is I have an old computer and plan on upgrading soon. If i cant transfer might be a good excuse to buy a new laptop

Re: Buying AE have some Q's

to clarify

Quote:
The process is different for USB and serial versions of the product. USB versions are hardware keyed to the USB connector. Once you purchase an option, a 64-digit code will be sent to you that will be used to activate your new options. That code can then be subsequently installed on as many computers as you like. The serial version gets three activations in a 12 month period. This code is computer-based so any change to the computer setup may require a new activation code. USB-based products activations will arrive with your package so you can be up and running immediately. Adding support to a USB-based product and serial-based products activations are done through email. Please do not call technical support for activation codes, this is only done through email. The process is posted here: Click here for email activation process.
most use the USB version

Re: Buying AE have some Q's

It will work with windows 8, just don't update to 8.1, something about the USB not reading the scanner.

Not supported by apple, but there are programs that allow you to run windows software on your mac.

I run Microsoft Office Suite on my MacBook Air and it's been really stable, with very few glitches. In respect of running a parallel Windows OS on my Mac nope not gonna do it just the thought of Windows Vista.....

So the AE software comes on a USB stick and not a disc right? As I do have a Windows 7 (i think thats the OS) little Toshiba laptop, the kids don't use anymore but it's not got a CD/DVD drive on it only USB ports.

thanks,
