Copying FCP X / Motion / Compressor to other computers

Has anyone found a solution to downloading once and installing on multiple computers? (Which are authorised under the same Apple store id)

FCP X / Motion / Compressor is a 4GB download and we have 6 mac's for development and testing of CoreMelt plugins. Is Apple for real that we have to download 4GB each time to install on multiple computers?

We're in Australia and have data download caps, and also it takes about 2 hours to download the entire 4GB for each computer. This is a mess , where are the installable DMG files?

BTW, you can't simply drag the Application to a new computer, when FCP X installs it runs a bunch of shell scripts to copy other files (Something which NON-Apple software in the App store is not allowed to do... don't get met started on that one...)

Seems it should work with just copying the apps:

Hmm, I didn't try just copying the installation as I can see that during installation FCP X runs a bunch of terminal scripts to set things up properly. Have you tested this and made sure it works ok? Eg not just starts up but actually works properly?

I had installed FCP X on the same drive as FCP 7 but now i have made a new boot drive. So from old partition, i just dragged it into new partition's application folder & it works just fine!

"The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally
