I believe that if you have the product registered with the site, you have access to both the Mac and Windows installers via the Downloads/My Programs and Keys section. Hope that helps!

Pixelboy is correct. You will have to log into the account to which the product is registered, and download the windows installer and the latest key.

You need to download the Mac installer (*.pkg.zip) rather than using the Windows installer (*.exe).

Ah, right, because you have EffectsLab Lite, which was discontinued with the latest update. I'll see what I can find out for you regarding that.

The Lite products are locked to a specific platform. If you want to swap to a different platform you will need to upgrade to Pro or VisionLab which allow you to swap between OS freely.
