View Full Version : Can Mac Devs install 10.7 on multiple computers?

Feb 25, 2011, 10:17 PM
One of my friends and I are looking at developing a small program for school use, and we thought that there's no time better now that 10.7 beta has been released.
However, we were wondering -- would we be able to install Lion on more than 1 computer (ie if he installed it on his Macbook initially and then also on mine)?

Also, we were just wanting to ensure: when signing up for Mac dev does that include immediate access to 10.7 (after NDA etc)?

Thanks very much!

Yes, it's even documented right on the ADC site.

On the first computer you installed Lion on, you'll find "Install Mac OS X." Just copy it onto how ever many (authorized) machines you have.

And actually joining ADC is immediate, but to get approved and download Lion can take up to 24 hours. Realistically, though, you'll get full access to the site within a few minutes after paying.
