Do I download Articulate software or install it from a disk?

All Articulate software is available exclusively as a download, so you can start using it right away. After you buy an Articulate software product, you’ll receive an email with download instructions and a serial number. If you don’t receive an email within an hour, check your spam folder for an email from Articulate support.

Can I install Articulate software on more than one computer?

You can install our authoring software on two computers—such as a home computer and a work computer, or a desktop and a laptop—for your use only. If you get a message that you've exceeded permitted activations, you may need to uninstall the software on an old computer or buy additional licenses. There's no restriction on the number of people who view your published content. See the Articulate End-User License Agreement (EULA) for additional details.

What is Articulate ID?

Articulate ID will be your username for all things Articulate. We’re rolling it out in phases. Currently, you’ll need to create an Articulate ID to download Articulate trial software. Learn more in this article.

Can I transfer a license from one computer to another?

Yes. Connect to the internet, then uninstall the software from your old computer (Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs) to release the registration from the computer. Then install the software on your new computer by following the activation instructions you received when you purchased your software. If you don't have this email, contact Articulate support for help.

Can I get my money back if I change my mind?

You can get a full refund within 30 days of purchasing our desktop software—no questions asked. Just contact Articulate support.
