Moving Market Samurai between computers

There can be many reasons why you may want to move your Market Samurai installation from one computer to another - such as computer problems or upgrades, or needing to access it both at home and at work.

Your standard license of Market Samurai allows for up to 2 people to use the software across a maximum of 5 installations at a time. Typically there are no problems simply installing it again using your original registration details.

It's a good idea to click the "Deactivate" button in the 'Settings' menu (it's called 'Preferences' on the Mac) to free up an activation in your account, before uninstalling any active copy of the software.

If you have lost your registration details, instructions on retrieving them can be found here.

Installing Market Samurai on your new computer is simple - Mac instructions can be found here, Windows instructions can be found here.
