Apple Time Machine or Migration Assistant cause an S-Gear license problem (MAC)


The following will result in an incomplete S-Gear installation or invalid S-Gear license:

  • Using Apple Time Machine to restore a system image from another machine
  • Using Apple Migration Assistant to copy applications from another machine

These tools are not able to recreate a valid S-Gear license on the new machine.

To fix any problems after running these tools:

  • Close any S-Gear instances and re-run the S-Gear installer
  • Re-activate S-Gear using the License Key sent to you when you purchased S-Gear

If you have lost your license key, please send us a message via contact containing the email address used during purchase.

Note: If you are moving to a new MAC, don't forget to deactivate the license on your old system.  You may not be able to activate your new system if you have exceeded the number of activations permitted by your license. Deactivation is simple and quick, just click the Deactivate button on the S-Gear About screen.
