Installing the Komodo License on macOS

NOTE This only applies for Komodo 11.1.0 and lower. Version 11.1.1 and higher are integrated with the ActiveState Platform and do not use the license installer. For more information, see Komodo and the ActiveState Platform.

Komodo IDE comes with a 21-day trial license. To install a permanent license:

  • Download the license installer from the My Account page.
  • Double-click the downloaded zip file to unpack it (this is done automatically if you are using Safari), and double-click the enclosed license installer.

Upgrading from Previous Komodo Versions

Newer versions of Komodo should not be installed in the same directory as older versions.

For minor releases (e.g. x.0 to x.1) and patch-level releases (x.1.1 to x.1.2), you should use the auto-update system (Help > Check for Updates). The changes will be applied safely in the current install directory. If you need to update using an installer, completely uninstall the older version or rename the .app before installing the new one. Your Komodo preferences will be preserved as they are installed in a different directory.
