If you already own EQ8, you can purchase a Migration Kit that allows you to run EQ8 on a different platform. In other words, if you currently run EQ8 on a Windows computer, then you can buy this to add an EQ8 download for Mac (or vice versa) to your account and then use EQ8 on both platforms. You will continue to use the License ID and License Password that came with your original purchase of EQ8. This product does not issue additional activations. If you are currently running EQ8 on two computers, you will need to deactivate one* of them in order to activate EQ8 on the new operating system.
To be eligible to purchase a Migration Kit, your EQ8 license must be verified. Click on an option for purchase below. Enter your EQ8 License ID and License Password, and then click Verify My License.

Who it’s for
The EQ8 Migration Kit is only for owners of Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8) software. Regardless if you have the full version of EQ8 or EQ8 Upgrade, you are still eligible for the Migration Kit.
The EQ8 Migration Kit is for you if you want to use EQ8 on both a Windows and Mac computer. Here’s more information.
How it works
With the purchase of the EQ8 Migration Kit, an EQ8 download with the appropriate files for the selected operating system, or platform, will be added to your account. Click for install directions for both platforms. Since you are required to own EQ8, you will not receive a License ID or License Password with your purchase. You must use the numbers that came with your original purchase of EQ8.
Once you’ve purchased the migration kit, you will be able to use EQ8 on a PC and Mac. You can have EQ8 activated on two computers simultaneously. Activations can be easily transferred between computers. Here’s more information about activations.
* Please deactivate EQ8 on at least one computer before installing and activating the EQ8 Migration Kit. Click to learn how.
So if I purchase the migration kit, can I still use EQ8 on my Windows too? My home computer runs Windows, but my work computer is a Mac.
Yes. As always, your EQ8 license ID allows you to have two active computers at a time. The EQ8 license ID will work for either Windows or Mac. You have complete control over the activations and the current computers/platforms that you have active. If you’re not familiar with the details of the activation system, you’ll find instructions here
Will EQ8 work on my iPad?
EQ8 for Mac requires OS X. The iPad uses iOS which is an operating system for Apple’s portable devices. iOS is optimized for small touch screens and apps. Our full-featured quilt design software is not feasible on these smaller hand-held devices.
Minimum System Requirements:
- Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 with Service Pack 1
- macOS Big Sur (11) Intel and M1 processors, Catalina (10.15), Mojave (10.14), High Sierra (10.13)
If you want to run EQ8 on BOTH platforms, you must purchase the EQ8 Migration Kit to get the installation files for the second platform.
