I have a couple of questions related to upgrading.
I hope this is the correct place to ask, as I could not find a way to contact sales, as one could do in the old days.

My wife uses one of my Authorizations on her iMac, and I have one on Windows.

  • Is it possible to "upgrade" her computer separately, even though the purchase/license currently is in my name.
    This would be very helpful financially. :-)

Related to the above,
Is it still possible to upgrade from PrintMusic on the Mac?

  1. It appears that it is.
  2. If so, does PrintMusic have to be installed on the computer, or is proof of purchase necessary?
  3. She recently bought a new iMac and PrintMusic might not install.
  4. It appears that she could save a considerable amount if a $99 PrintMusic could be upgraded to full Finale for $200.

I hope this makes sense.


Thank you,
:-)

To contact Sales directly, use the Submit a Request link at the top of the page.

 

Although this is a Users board, we know the basic answers. You can upgrade from Print Music to Finale 26 through your MakeMusic User Account. You shouldn't have a problem but if you do, use that link.

 

The upgrade does not require the old version to be present on your Mac or PC. It will install as a separate application.

 

Although 26 will authorize on two computers, that's still for one user only.

 

I no longer see Competitive Upgrades (crossgrades) on the MM site but some resellers list them for 26. If you have licenses for a qualifying competitor's product, you should still be able to purchase Finale at a discounted price. Use the Submit a Request link for a qualifying product list and pricing. Perhaps MM should put that back into the store?

Remember that PM is stopped at 2014.5, and will not install on a Mac beyond 10.12 (IIRC)

 

You would definitely want to move to Finale.

When one "deauthorizes" Finale, is the Garritan library also deauthorized with it?
I just assume it would be.

The same for uninstalling: are they separate actions, or are they done simultaneously?

Thank you,

I don’t use the libraries, so I really don’t know. Did you authorize it separately when you installed? Does it show as a separate authorization? If it doesn’t, I would imagine it to be an all-in-one thing.

Though a second installer on your initial installation, the Garritan Instruments for Finale (GIFF) are authorized by Finale — you’re not supposed to be able to use them in any other app. Dunno how true that is — I never tried.

 

Garritan libraries licensed by the Garritan license key work in any app that can utilize the Aria Player — and there are many. This would include GPO, World Instruments etc.
