|Simply copy the Kinemac folder to your boot disk inside the /Applications folder as shown in the picture below. Then open the Kinemac folder and double click the application file Kinemac.
Authorize your computer
The demo version can be freely downloaded from our web site but has the following limits: it displays a white grid and the Kinemac logo over the Stage window and it doesn't let you save your animations. To unlock these limits you should purchase a license at our web store. When you purchase a license we will send you via email a small text file named RegistrationFile.txt.
- Put the file RegistrationFile.txt within the folder containing the Kinemac application, like shown in the picture here below. Don't open nor modify nor rename this file. It contains encrypted data.
- Be sure your computer is connected to the internet then launch the Kinemac application. Automatically at the first launch your computer will be authorized to run Kinemac as registered. The demo application will turn into a full working application and will run without limitations. After the first launch you don't need longer to be connected to the internet to launch and run Kinemac as registered.
- If Kinemac doesn't run as registered, please check these solutions.
- If you purchased a multi user license, you can copy the whole Kinemac folder (including the Kinemac application and the RegistrationFile.txt) to your computers, then authorize the license on those computers too. When authorized, Kinemac will tell you how many additional activations you can still make.
- Remember to deauthorize your machine before you sold it or give it away. See next chapter here below.
- Please install one only copy of the Kinemac application on your machine. If you install more copies and someone of them is not registered, when double clicking on a Kinemac document the Finder could launch an unregistered copy.
Deauthorize your computer
If you need to move your license to a different computer, or if you are going to sell your computer or to give it away, you have to deauthorize the computer where Kinemac is running on as registered. To deauthorize your computer, make sure it is connected to the internet, then:
- Launch Kinemac and choose the menu item "Deauthorize Computer" from the Kinemac menu. Hold for a couple of seconds until Kinemac tells you that your machine has been deauthorized properly. At which time you will see your copy running as demo, with a white grid and the Kinemac logo on the Stage Window.
- Quit Kinemac and don't relaunch it again on this machine, otherwise you will authorize the license to run again on that machine. If you need to run Kinemac in demo mode on the first machine, of if you are going to sell your machine, remove the RegistrationFile.txt from this machine.
- If you need now to authorize a different machine, move (or copy) the Kinemac folder (which includes the application Kinemac and the RegistrationFile.txt) to the second computer and launch the Kinemac application there. If the second machine is connected to the internet, the license will be automatically authorized when Kinemac is first launched.
- If you need to work on 2 or more machines but you have one only license, you can quite copy the Kinemac folder, including the Kinemac application and the RegistrationFile.txt, to both your machines. Then when you wan to run Kinemac on the first machine, firstly launch Kinemac on the second machine, deauthorize it and quit. Then launch Kinemac on the first machine. The first machine will be authorized automatically at the first launch.
As opposite, if you want to run Kinemac on the second machine, firstly launch Kinemac on the first machine, deauthorize it and quit. Then launch Kinemac on the second machine. The second machine will be authorized automatically at the first launch.
