I was just looking in the store, more specifically at PhotoKey, and I saw there wasn't an option to choose Mac OS X or Windows. Does this mean that if someone purchases the program, they could run it on both OS's?

You must just select the platform you want after you purchase, when it actually comes time to download it. The Demo page has separate installers for each operating system.

OK, cheers Axeman.

I was confused because it wasn't like the others.

Yeah, odd that it isn't consistent with the other programs that way.

It seems like every program would be like that now that there's no more cross-grade fee. It makes no difference for the other programs whether you select Windows or Mac.

PhotoKey is the only program that has had duel platform keys from the beginning, you've never been able to buy just the Windows version or just the Mac version. That's why its different.

All the current programs now use duel platform keys, but the store still works the same because it's actually a big job to change it. I will update it at some point (so it all works the same as PhotoKey), but for now it's useful to see which OS people intend to use, even if they swap later on.
