Shareable USB Drive

I have created a shareable USB drive, but it comes up with the same restrictions as RootMagic Essentials. I am using a registered version of RootsMagic. How can I fix this.

This is the intention of the Shareable Drive. You can share it with others. It does not need a registration key. The database is not editable. Very different from RootsMagic To-Go that can go on a USB Drive. It will run in essential mode if no key is used to unlock it. It cannot be unlocked and given to others since the key is only for your use.

So, if I give someone a shareable drive with a tree on it, I understand that they will not be able to edit it. However, will they have the ability to purchase RM and then be able to access and edit that tree, to make it their own?

Yes, if they boot your shared database up into RootsMagic Essentials and like what they see with the demo features… they can certainly buy a license (and get full functionality with the database).

By “boot”, you mean upload the tree into RM essentials? I figured that had to be the case, but wanted to make sure. Thanks for the reply!
