Fresh Installation On Second Computer

A new computer is headed my way. I'm told to expect it Late Monday.

I have totally forgotten the entire process of Downloading and Activating Movie Studio 18.

Any advance preparation, advice, warnings, whatever, are welcome and invited.

Like; where do you click ?



Product version: Movie Studio 18 Platinum Version

To redownload your product go to your Magix account, log in, go to My products, find the listing for MMS Platinum 18. There will be links to the installer as well as showing your needed serial key. It will also show any existing activations previously made of the software. If you no longer need any/all of those listed you should deactivate them whilst in your account. This should mean you avoid the problem of attempting to install and activate the software too many times! (You can have a maximum of two simultaneous activations in operation.)

Once the installer is downloaded, simply double-click it and allow it to run. It is worth checking every screen that is shown as it first begins; there are various user options which, if not specifically checked by you, may result in the default installation of other software you may not actually want! IOW, the advice is Don't just click on every screen you see to accept those default settings! Read carefully and make your choices based on what you want to see installed and where!

See my 3 tutorials on Getting Started in Movie Edit Pro, especially the first one about installing the program. They are under the Tutorials tab of this forum.
