I have a licence for Mindjet on windows .... I am planning to replace my win7 laptop with a macbook air .... Does anyone know if I have a way to migrate my windows licence to a mac licence?

Is there such an option available?
If so, do i buy a migration path ?

Or do I have to junk my current licence and buy a new one for mac

would appreciate any direction

Please open a ticket with our customer service team. Assuming you are using the latest version of the Mindjet application there shouldn't be an issue in allowing you to convert your license.

You can open a ticket using the following link

There is an even easier way.
Why not upgrade and get the latest Mac version free.
And you get one year MindManager PLUS (basic web facility to exchange maps, etc.)

A word of caution. As you are already using Mindjet on Windows and as you say your are "planning" on moving to Mac, have you tried MindManager Mac?

If not I suggest you do so before making the commitment as the Mac/Windows versions of MindManager are worlds apart!

If you are just doing light weight mapping then it woill probably ok but if you are using any add-ins, office integration etc then you will lose that and you may find some Windows based maps are not fully compatible with the Mac version i.e. custom shapes....

Indeed, as Olympic suggested please use the Mindjet trial on the Mac to see if this is workable for your. Otherwise, have a look at solutions like Parallels/VMWare/VirtualBox which allow you to run Windows applications within your Mac environment.

I have MindManager for Mac and MindManager for Windows (run through Parallels) and neither work that well. MM for Mac isn't as flexible or offer as many features as MM for Windows but trying to run it through Parallels will suck all of the life out of your computer and you will make mistakes because of the lag. Can you just keep your old machine set up with MM for Windows and continue to run it there?

To see MindJet's lack of Mac support, go to http://support.mindjet.com/learning-c... and compare Mac to Windows.
