Mac to Windows AD license replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a strange question. My new computer based on Windows system. Mac version unavailable.

It is possible to disable my Mac version of Affinity Designer and create same license only for Windows?

Thank you for answer.

Not a strange question at all! It’s actually quite a common question, but unfortunately the answer is ‘No’: your licence for the Mac version came from the Mac App Store, but (since Apple don’t share data about individual customers) there’s no way for Serif to verify that you already own a licence, so you have to buy it again. Even when Serif start selling the Mac versions through their own Affinity Store, I don’t think this will change.
