Installing Resolume

I'm sure you are keen to get started so you'll be pleased to know that the installation process is very simple. Simply download the relevant file (.exe for Windows, .dmg for Macs) from the Resolume website, run the install file and follow the instructions.

Because of the graphical acceleration that is used, Resolume does have some system requirements. Please check the spec page on the website for the current minimum requirements.


The download of Resolume will work in demo mode straight away. You will notice that occasionally the Resolume logo will appear on the video output and a robotic voice will remind you what software you are using. This is the only limitation of the demo. You can use all the features and it's not crippled in any way.

In order to get out of demo mode and use Resolume for real, you will need to buy a license from our webshop or from one of our resellers. When you have done that, you will receive a serial number.

Once you have a serial number, select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Enter your serial number into the text box and click Register. Resolume will now use your Internet connection to confirm your serial number with the Resolume registration database. Once this is completed, Resolume will be fully registered and the audio and video reminders will be gone. No internet connection is required to run Resolume after this.

Offline Registration

You can register Resolume without having an Internet connection on the machine you install it on.

To do this, select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Then click the Offline Registration button. Take a note of the ID Code that is shown. You will now need to use a computer that does have an Internet connection to visit:

You will need to enter your serial number and the ID Code that you just noted. The Resolume website will then generate a registration key file. Transfer this file to the computer that you have installed Resolume on.

Now select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Click the ‘Offline Registration…’ button and then the ‘Load registration file …’ button. Select the file and Resolume will become fully registered.


When you need to re-install your operating system or when you have bought a new computer, make sure you remove your registration.

To remove your Resolume registration from a computer, go to the Register tab in the Preferences and click on the “Unregister” button. This will remove your serial number from the computer.

Make sure you are connected to the internet when you de-register. Resolume can then send a message to the registration server that your serial is unregistered and is ready to use on another computer.

If your computer was stolen or damaged, that sucks monkeyballs. At least you can still use Resolume when you get a new computer. Just log in to your account in the shop to raise the limit.
