Will Shakespeare In Bits harm my computer?
All Shakespeare In Bits products are scanned for viruses and malicious codes before being released to the public. Please be sure to always install the product directly from this site or from an approved distributor.

Do I need to be connected to the internet to run the product?
No. The single user products run on your machine entirely and can run without being connected to the internet. However, you will need to be connected to the internet to register and activate the full version.

Please note that certain security software such as ZoneAlarm or McAfee Security Suite can prevent activation from working. If you are connected to the internet and the activation phase reports that it is unable to connect, please temporarily disable this software or contact your system administrator to grant full http and https privileges to Adobe AIR and the Shakespeare In Bits application.

Can I install the single user product on multiple machines?
Yes, but we recommend you download the packages then save these files to your local network or a USB drive. You can then distribute them to each machine you'd like to install the product onto without downloading it each time.

Please note: you will need a license for each user account on each machine on which you wish to run the full version, and each machine will need internet access in order to activate the product.
