My laptop has Final Cut Pro X on it.  However I'm getting rid of the laptop to get a NEW machine.

 

How do I deauthorize Final Cut Pro X so I can install & authorize it on my new machine?

 

ONLY answer if it is specifically about deauthorizing Final Cut Pro X.

 

Thank you.


Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

There is no deauthorizing. Just put it in the trash. Usually I wipe the drive on a computer I'm selling and reinstall the OS so the new owner has a blank slate.

    I currently own multiple machines with FCPX on them.  I don't want any complications loading FCPX on my new machine.  That's the reason for asking about deauthorizing the program from the machine.

     

    How many machines can Final Cut Pro X be on at one time?  Up to 5 correct?

    Any Apple Store app can be installed on as many machines as you own. Like Tom said, there is no such thing as authorizing and deauthorizing. You're getting confused with iTunes which does indeed have a limit of 5. Just wipe your computer and then install it when you get the new one.
