Each active, individual license you hold entitles you to install the software on two devices for your exclusive use. If you purchase a Mac license you can install on two Macs. If you purchase a Windows version of your license you can install on two Windows devices. NVivo 12 Pro (Windows) and NVivo 12 Plus (Windows) licenses can also be used to download and install NVivo 12 Mac on Mac devices, provided the total number of devices in any combination doesn’t exceed two. The software is for your exclusive use only and cannot be used on both the devices at the same time.
You can use the ‘Copy Project’ feature in NVivo 12 Pro (Windows) to convert your Windows version of NVivo to NVivo 12 Mac. You can use the ‘Copy Project’ feature in NVivo 12 Plus (Windows) to convert your Windows version of NVivo to NVivo 12 Mac. Before converting any projects, we recommend you backup your project and also understand the cross platform limitations and issues
as all data may not successfully convert due to restrictions on data interchange between operating systems. Please note that to work with a project in this way, you need to be using the new versions of NVivo, and not a combination of new and old NVivo releases. For example, you can’t work with a project in this way using the first release of NVivo for Mac and NVivo 12.
