          If you just want to use it on a mac as a completely separate version, just install it, using the mac discs. If you want to transfer your catalog to the mac, do a full backup in windows using the organizer's backup command, then restore it to the mac.

            A download version is normally for a single platform, in your case Windows only. If you upgrade to PSE/PRE11 and get the boxed version you can install on both platforms. Two activations are permitted.

              Oh, thanks for catching that, 99jon. Yes, you will need to buy PSE again with the download.


              Sorry, forjwerx, so many people who come here use "download" to mean "install" that it didn't register.
