I purchased MV a while ago directly from the site and, have since, obtained a PC. I would like to transfer the software, but am unversed in such processes. I've read several things about a Steam key and am not sure where to go about finding that. I've rifled through my emails, and finding nothing, must now ask for a little help. Thanks in advance!

If you have it on Steam, you should just be able to download it from there straight to your PC.

I think the key for activating the non steam version if the same as the key you would use to activate it on steam, just do that and then download via steam?
Note: I could be wrong :p

I had gotten a new computer since first purchasing RPG Maker MV. I just installed it on the new computer with the key in my RPG Maker Web account.

Would that be the license number that came with the order?

Yep! Go to "Your Account" from the RPG Maker home page and select the order with your MV purchase.
There should be a license code between your order total and downloads.
Re-download the software if needed and then you can paste that code in to activate it.

Also to add to this, In some instances if there isn't a code to be found in the download section, the order number (usually starts with an R) is the key. If MV came with a steam code key then the Steam key is also the products key for the non-steam version.

I'm listening to iiluminaughtii talking about the secrets behind shady businesses and scams. Meanwhile I'm writing a fanfic about Sephiroth from FF7, one specifically for my stepmom. I'll get to give it to her, too, because my boss said I could take the holidays off! Dec. 22-27 I will be in Orlando, and maybe Fort Myers too, visiting my dad and stepmom!
Of course, I bought a handful of games on the Steam Black Friday sale. Will I try them? Will I complete any? Who knows...
I don't really have any neat updates today about how I screwed up programming... But if you want to observe the intensenes of me programming, then you can check out my stream :)

No more spam from me today, I promise! Just wanted to upload this, people have been giving me feedback that my weapon sprites (which were RTP) clashed badly with my battlers for ages, so today I finally took the plunge and updated them! Really happy with how they came out :D :D
So Facebook fraudulently took money from me. They even went through my PayPal accounts to find a card that had the money on it. Thinking about deleting my Facebook account because this doesn't happen on twitter, not even close.
