Can you please provide me with my software key so that I can redownload whatever Beatunes version it was that I paid for years ago? I believe this older Mac is on OS 10.4 and unfortunately it doesn’t have internet so I will have to download to a thumb drive to reinstall to this older Mac. My original setup crashed and is no longer accessible. Thank you!

    Hi Chris,

    you can download old versions of the software from https://www.beatunes.com/en/beatunes-download-old.html

    Your license key is available from https://www.beatunes.com/en/recoverkey.html

    Looking for it myself, I noted that it is still connected to your Yahoo email address. Would you like me to switch this over to Gmail—so that it would be sent to your Gmail address?

    Note that the license is for beaTunes 2.x, which at this point is pretty outdated.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Hendrik,Yes,,please do update the email address from the yahoo to the current [email blocked]'m thinking that once I have the older version on thislaptop, assuming it works properly, what would be the procedure and cost to upgrade to a more current version? I don't know at this point which version will work for my current setup.Thanks for your assistance.Chris WhiteSent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device

    Hey Chris,

    I have updated the address. Please note that when entering your license info into v2 you still have to use your old address.

    once I have the older version on thislaptop, assuming it works properly,

    I have no idea whether v2 still works on current operating systems.

    I don't know at this point which version will work for my current setup.

    For a current OS, the current beaTunes version is usually best.

    To update: on a mac you simply install and start a new version. On the first start, the internal database is update to the current format (this implies that downgrading is difficult).

    Good luck,

    To purchase a more current version, you'd unfortunately have to pay full price, because v2 is so old (there are discounts for people who own v3 or v4).

    If you want to go that route and would like to pay via PayPal, please make sure PayPal is configured to use your Gmail address and not some old address before the purchase.
