I just started using Prem Elements on my Windows 10 PC but will shortly be changing over to a new iMac.  Can I uninstall Prem Elements from my PC and then use the same license to install it on the new Mac?

If you bought the boxed program set, you received discs for both Windows and Mac as well as activation numbers that will work on either platform.

If you bought the program as a download, you bought either the Windows or Mac version. As I understand it, you can't use the Windows activation number on a Mac and vice versa.

Thanks for the help.  I reviewed the invoice and it does specify the download and serial number is for Windows 10, so it wouldn't work if I tried to use the serial number with a Mac download.

Thanks for finding this information for me and it is correct.  After about 45 minutes talking to customer support, they did agree that it would be possible to change platforms on this product.  I just have to wait about 72 hours for the change over to take effect and I'll be able to download the Mac version at no additional cost.  Thanks.
