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.
How it works
With the purchase of the EQ8 Migration Kit, you will receive a link to download the appropriate files for the selected operating system. Since you are required to own EQ8, you will not receive a license ID or 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.
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 PC too? My home computer is a PC, 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 the PC or the 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 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 with Service Pack 1;
- macOS High Sierra (10.13), Sierra (10.12), El Capitan (10.11), Yosemite (10.10);
(Apple is requiring that all applications be 64-bit applications before the Fall 2019 release of macOS 10.15. Electric Quilt plans to release an update to EQ8 before then to ensure that EQ8 is fully compatible with mac0S 10.15. You can read more here > )
