  • free software upgrades and customer support via email;
  • the ability to run linotune for all users on a single machine;
  • the ability to move the license between machines, up to twice a week
    (requires both old and new machine to be connected to the Internet).

Frequently Asked Questions

I've completed the purchase, where's my license key/upgrade? If you don't receive an email with your license key or upgrade within minutes of completing your purchase, it is most likely for one of the following reasons:

  • the email got filtered as spam by your provider - please check your spam email folder for it;
  • you've given an incorrect email address during the purchase - please contact me with your correct address;
  • you've chosen to pay via an e-check from your bank account. You'll receive your license key or upgrade as soon as the payment clears. Paypal e-checks can take up to a week to clear; you can avoid such delays in the future by using a credit or debit card to pay, or to back up your paypal account with.

What if my installation of linotune is damaged or deleted? Your license key remains valid regardless of events such as OS upgrades. If you lose your installation, simply download & install linotune again, then re-activate it with the original key. Make sure you keep a copy of your license key in a safe place away from your computer!

Can I run linotune without Internet access? Certainly! Linotune will happily run offline, as long as it has the permission to do so. However, your device will need the Internet for activation, deactivation (to move your license to another machine), and to periodically renew the permission to run. For rentals this needs to happen to extend your license after you've made a payment, for permanent licenses every 3 months.

Can I rent the multi-window upgrade? Sorry, this upgrade can only be purchased outright, and for licenses that are permanent.

What if the linotune server dies? While it is not possible to buy or activate linotune when our server is down, an already activated copy of linotune will continue to run happily for up to 3 months. Our server is housed in a highly reliable and secure professional data center; its downtime is measured in minutes per month.
