What happens after I purchase Machinechat JEDI?

Once your purchase is complete, you'll receive an email with a link to download the software and a license key. You can then install the software on your device, activate it using the provided license key, and start using Machinechat JEDI. If you need any assistance, please contact support@machinechat.io.

Can I share my Machinechat JEDI license with others?

Machinechat JEDI licenses are per-user licenses. This means each license is intended for use by one user. 

Can I upgrade from Machinechat JEDI One to JEDI Pro?

Yes. Please contact support@machinechat.io.

Can I use my Machinechat JEDI license on multiple computers?

No, each Machinechat JEDI license is tied to the hardware platform on which it was activated. This means that you can only use the license on the computer or hardware device that you originally activated it on. If you wish to use Machinechat JEDI on multiple devices, you would need to purchase additional licenses. This helps us maintain the integrity and quality of our product and support services.

Can I move my license from one hardware device to another?

No, due to the fact that Machinechat JEDI does not call home or access the internet once the software is activated, there is no automated method to deactivate a license and activate it on another hardware device or computer. However, we understand that situations may arise where a license transfer is necessary. Therefore, we handle such situations on a case-by-case basis. If you find yourself in such a circumstance, please reach out to us at support@machinechat.io, and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
