MAGIX Movie Edit Pro Premium (US) - Standalone System Activation

garfield-birch wrote on 1/13/2021, 3:44 PM

My company purchased the MAGIX Movie Edit Pro to use in a standalone environment that cannot be connected to internet for security reasons. How can I activate the license in such an environment. Could I send your team the MAC address and you create a license file for me?

Hi

Assuming you have bought and installed the program from disc - there should be an Activate Program offline link in the activation/registration dialog click this and follow through the instructions.

Using computer that is online to activate/register the program - you should then receive an activation code that insert into the offline computer program activation dialog.

If the program was not installed from disc then you will have to contact Magix as @CubeAce has commented and obtain a disc to install the rest of the program, this is normally done online.

On a related note, I had wondered somewhere else in this forum when the clock would start on my stand-alone install of MEP. I had bought a DVD version of MEP thru (yech) Amazon last January. But I didn't install it until March.

However, this week I have been receiving emails from Magix telling me that my 1 year "subscription" expires in a few days.

So apparently Magix starts the clock when one buys the program. Not when it is first installed. Which favors Magix and disfavors me.

Started with MEP 11, then 17, then MX, then MEP 2013, 2015, then 2016. Changed to the fast competitor after that which worked fine with my non-Intel hardware. Then bought a used Dell with an Intel GPU, just to play with MEP again. Installed MEP 2020 Plus in March 2020, even tho I don't like losing patches if I have to reinstall after a year.

That is standard practice for most software as with other goods.

Huh - so beware if you give software as a gift to someone. (While I suppose it's true that a warranty starts when one buys a tangible good, software is a different animal. Specifically, Magix knows exactly when the product is first used/activated.)

Substitute Support for Warranty and you are in the same position - a limited period for which you get updates to fix issues and support.

Depending on the software manufacturer support can be from 1 year to several depending on their policy - some software manufacturers only provide support for the 2 latest versions - Os's are different as they have 10 -15 years lifespans.

Hi,

There was another thread about this a year or so ago and the users indicated that they purchased for a third party (Amazon) and not only did the 1 year update service start upon activation not purchase date, activation was with a more recent version and it was locked in as the fallback version. Furthermore, Magix has no idea when the software was purchased from Amazon, only activated. So, I'm somewhat sceptical that the update service period/support would prior to activation.

Mike, check the expiry date in your account, don't go by emails or pop ups. What do you see there?

Your Magix account is on a separate domain - magix.com

Click the Account login icon top right of the home page

and log in with your email address and password used here.

The emails saying your account expires start about 1 or 2 months before the actual expiry date.

Ah, okay, thanks @johnebaker , that worked. Thanks.

It turns out that my MEP 2020 IS showing a Registration Date of March 2, 2020.

So all is almost right with the world here.

Except that Magix's emails to me are deceptive in that they tell me that my Registration was going to expire in "a few days." Not in one to two months.

As a side note, not all my Magix MEP's show on the Registration page. Old MEP 2015 is there. But not 2016. (And, of course, nothing about MEP 11, 17, MX, MEP 2013.)

Well in advance notice - though I think 1 month would be better - be prepared for more emails.

That is odd if they were all registered to the same email address, all mine from MEP14 to date are showing.

Maybe Magix doesn't like me? (A grammatical note: I notice that in the U.K., you all consider a company as a plural. Whereas we in the States consider a comany a singular. Hence, "Magix doesn't like me," as opposed to "Magix don't like like me." (Which hurts my ears.))

Hi Mike

On the grammatical note one of my school teachers was a pedant for correct use of tenses and verbs.

' don't ' and doesn't when misused really do jar/hurt the ears.

This is not only happening with English - my wife has noticed this with her native language in recent years.

As painful as it may be, any language evolves over relatively short periods of time with the original meaning and use of words changing as well as the accepted use and spelling of those words.

I had to read a lot of ships logs from the 1800s and earlier a while back as well as documentation from shipyards. There was no standard spelling or use of English at all, let alone any understanding of some nautical terms. What I was taught in school has often been at odds with the spell check in use on my browser.

Language (from my viewpoint) is for the spoken word and as long as one can communicate the correct meaning across to the person listening, it has done its job. However, written down it does not take into account local variation in either dialect or the possible use of a word in a given context.

To me it's a wonder we ever communicate effectively with the written word at all.

We are getting well off topic here, however

Reminds me of the Asimov (Foundations Edge) -
