question re: re-authorizing GPO/Kontakt/Logic (etc) after Mac drive wipe
I know this has been covered, but I want to absolutely make sure I'm doing this correctly before proceeding. I currently am using GPO and Kontakt on both my Mac and PC computer. I plan to shortly wipe my Mac OS X Panther hard drive and install a new copy of Tiger from scratch. Before doing this I want to make sure I've de-authorized whatever programs need de-authorization, etc. so I won't have any trouble after installation. I've heard that I need to go to the NI website and de-authorize; I also read however, that if I've got 2 copies of their products installed there might be a problem if I only de-authorize the FIRST computer I originally authorized on or something...My question is:
what is the correct procedure for de-authorizing to achieve this Tiger upgrade? Should I temporarily de-authorize both computers and then re-authorize after doing the Mac Tiger upgrade? Or should I de-authorize only the Mac (the 1rst computer I originally installed GPO and Kontakt on?)
And for those Logic 7 users out there - I presume I simply re-insert my USB dongle into my Mac after the upgrade and all will be well?

If you are not having problems with your current set up just a simple upgrade would be the easiest option. I have had no known issues since using this option. There really is no benefit to wiping a hard drive in OSX unless you are having issues. Here is Apple's info on it.
Native Instruments has good registration support and usually a return time of one day or less during business days, so this should be the best way. You can also call 323-467-2693 in the US or +49-3061103520 in the EU.
