Changing from Windows to Mac.

Postby ChasDrum » Wed Feb 10, 2016 11:58 pm

Hi folks,

Bought BFD3 in November last year. Foolishly tried using on an i3 dual core 6gb ram and software simply doesnt work (or rather the laptop can't handle it).

After much legwork now have a macbook pro (i7 quad, 8gb ram 256 ssd) so want to now transfer over. My question is, could I do this via offline authorization (bearing in mind it's a window version which will obviously NOT work on a mac) or is it a case of deregistering and downloading the OS version? Bit confused with the intracacies of BFD - Any pointers would be welcome - Thanks.

Hi again,

I'm really struggling with trying to get this sorted. I've read the installation guide that came with the USB version, the online guidance, the forum, other forums etc and nowhere is there a step by step guide to simply downloading the OS version of BFD3.

I understand that with the original licence, one can can install on three separate machines but not how to download from scratch with an existing registered product. I noted with interest that the guide says that a major hardware change requires a reauthorisation - this seems to contradict the "install on three separate machines."

I've got three expansion packs and Geist waiting to go (as well as BFD3 which I've barely touched) and I'm getting really frustrated with how difficult this is proving to be. I really don't want to have to demand a full refund for all of the Fxpansion products.

On my account page it shows my unregistered products, BFD3 updates, Licence Manager update but no software installer or OS X/BFD3 application.

Stumped at present.
