Question
How can I get my downloaded Final Draft 8 program to another computer?

Answer

You can easily install Final Draft 8 on an additional computer using one of the following methods:

  1. The full installer is always available for free from our website. Once you install it, open it and enter your 8FD number it will become a regular Final Draft installation. The installer is available HERE.
  2. You can copy the downloaded installer over a network or to a USB flash drive, a CDR/W or an external hard drive and transfer it that way.

IMPORTANT: Do not simply copy the installed program from Computer A to Computer B. The installation on Computer B will be incomplete and may therefore be unstable or may not behave as expected.

If you are currently using the maximum number of activations allowed by the Final Draft software license (usually 2), you will need to deactivate one of the other activated computers so you will have an activation available for this computer. See How do I deactivate Final Draft 8? for more information.

IMPORTANT: Live technical support (phone, chat, email) for Final Draft 8 will end on December 31, 2017. You will still be able to find information and solutions in this knowledge base, in the online troubleshooter and in the FD8 User Guide.
