buying sonar for a friend

I just bought sonar artist for a good friend as a surprise, but I'm not really sure how to make sure they can get the software and have it be theirs instead of linked to my account etc...

Be the first one who thinks that you can

    Good Question....
    I would contact CAKEWALK.
     
    Although you probably should have purchased through a retailer in this scenario.

    This question should go in the Store Forum.
     
    But what you could have done is set him up with his own account using their E mail etc.
     
    Otherwise you will have to share your account with them which is not a good idea.

    Don't register it in your name.  Have him make an account and see if he can download  the demo, then use the serial #.  That might work.

    Buying directly from Cakewalk automatically adds the product to your account. Buying from a reseller does not. Instead you would receive a code to redeem for the software which could have been given to your friend. Since you have already purchased from Cakewalk, you will need to contact Cakewalk order support.

    what everyone said.. your sonar license is linked to you.
     
    get them to sign up for it.. as your profile is different e.g. you get different discounts etc.
     
    just when will they fix it for the UK ? = not getting my money till they do..
     
    they pay for it, just paypal them the money back, solves that problem.
