OS Licensing and allowable number of installations and other FAQs (read before posting)


Recommended Posts

First and foremost, these are definitive, and you should not post questions about these:

Licenses are OS specific and non-transferable

  • You cannot transfer you license from Mac to Windows or iPad. Serif sell Affinity licenses per OS. A new purchase is required for each supported OS {Windows, Mac, and iOS}
  • If you have bought the Mac/Windows version you will still need to buy the Windows/Mac version if you want to use it on the other OS.
  • If you have bought the Mac version you will still need to buy the iPad version if you want to use it on an iPad (or vice-versa).

Number of installations

  • Licensing on each OS is fairly generous in terms of installation on other machines on the same OS and can be found here in the relevant "Your Rights and Permitted Use" section.

Software Licenses cannot be moved between the stores we sell on.

  • You cannot transfer from the Mac App Store to access the Mac version from the Affinity Store instead (or vice-versa)
  • You cannot transfer from the Windows Store to access the Windows version from the Affinity Store instead (or vice-versa)

There are also lots of questions asked numerous times in this forum, so we have written some standard answers for them. Those standard answers are collected together in an FAQ forum. 

We have written some search filters to help you see if your problem is one of the posts in that forum.
