hi all

I have recently bought a Macbook Pro to replace my ageing PC - The license agreement says I have to uninstall Native intruments as I have it on my other Mac and old PC (which I want to remove it from) so not to breach the EULA - Installed one 2 and to run on one at any given time

As I will use the old PC for other general family use do I have to manually uninstall all the Native Instruments (340+) manually on my old PC or

  1. Is there just one or a few Native applications I need to uninstall example: Massive, Kontakt 7,6,5 Maschine 2 etc or
  2. Is there a way to deregister that PC

Support documentation is very old and not very helpful


Cheers - any advice would help

    @Justerini Installing on the new computer is enough. Also, if you own a Komplete bundle, you allowed up to 3 installations.

    Thanks Jeremy

    Just wanted to make sure I am complying with the EULA

    Scenario is as follows

    1.     I have currently have 2 home setups

    a)    Current - Native instruments setup on 2 x PC’s (Windows) – will be no longer required but I will still be using these Windows computers for day to day activities Mainly “Microsoft products, word, excel etc” but Native instruments is still an application that is installed on these 2 PC’s

    b)    Future (next week)

    1.     Native instruments setup/installed on

     2 Macs I will as per EULA only use/log into Native instruments at one session

    Question is on the  2 x Windows PC’s that have the software installed but won’t be used again – do I need to uninstall on these PC’s or disable anything? Or reformat those PC’s with a backup

    @Justerini No need to uninstall on the PCs, simply install on the new macs. As long as you don't update or install new NI software on these old PCs you're all good.
