Propellerheads, sort it out please!
You should be giving the users the option to download from the shop/online or from a file, which could be downloaded on another machine as a file (.exe/dmg or your proprietary format)!
I know it's early days but I do think the option should be there, ideally, soon before the many additional RE's are released!
Seconded! I just bought Reason and am in the same boat. We already have the Ilock, sorry IGkey. Having a dedicated downloader is just overkill.
I do music production for a living and there is no way I will take my music PC on the net or cripple it by adding virus scanners etc. I had to install a new windows drive just to get Reason working. Only now I find out this silly restriction. Please allow users to download and install RE's offline!
Also I was wondering if now that I have RE's installed on my online windows drive and them registered with my IGkey, is there a folder or files I can copy across so that it will work? Surely this is a doable work around. Just copy the folders and registry settings or something like that?
