I just pre-ordered (found you from Nano :D). I ordered 2 because I wanted to get one as a present for my brother who does a lot of writing but has his own household. However I only got one serial number and they were both purchased under my name. Should I have done something different? What can I do now? Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't want to try it, but any port in a storm, especially when it means using Office 2010. ;)


Any chance there will be a "portable" version in the future? I'd love to be able to run scrivener entirely off a USB stick without having anything written to the registry of the machine (as a lot of companies frown on users installing software on work computers).

You can install Scrivener as a non-admin on a work computer (I've done it). Of course, the chances are that it will be against your company's IT policy, and therefore probably not to be encouraged. :wink:

Quickest fix will be to email sales AT literatureandlatte DOT com if you haven't already. If you can give David the name and email you used when you bought the license, he should be able to look that up and get things sorted for you, as well as switching your brother's license over to his name. Thank you for the purchase, and enjoy using Scrivener!
