  • Licence forever

    If you buy a Vbulletin Owned Licence, do you have it forever?

  • #2
    Yes, as long as you follow the License Agreement. You will have to pay $30 per year to renew members area access, though.

      The $30 a year is to re-new downloads of new versions. With an owned license your access to the members area never expires, and it is supported forever.

          Members area access dose not mean you can download new versions.

          If you have an owned license that has not expired then you can download new versions, it dose not matter if they are major releases or minor ones.

          When you buy an owned license it comes with one year of download access for free. Once your year is up you can pay $30 to renew and get download access again. You can renew at any time, so if you are happy with your current version and wanted to wait for a major release before renewing you can.

          If you do not renew you still have access to support and the members area, you just can't download new versions

            You will ALWAYS have access to member's area for supports. However, you cannot upgrade to the newer version unless your upgrade access is still valid for that specific license.

            For example, I have two licenses. One expires July this year, and the other expires October this year. They are both on the same account. If, unfortunetly enough for me, they were to release 4.x.x in Augustthis year (not necessairly the case, they will only release it when they are done; it may be before, it may be after, we'll never know until they announce it), then I cannot upgrade to 4.x.x with the license that expired at July, but I can upgrade to 4.x.x with the license that expires in October. If I want to upgrade to 4.x.x for the license which expires on July, I must then pay the $30 to upgrade to add another year to my license. The year is added ontop from the current date or the date your license expires, which comes later. However, when there's critical release such as 3.0.5 we seen eariler today, they will provide the init.php or necessairy files for you to fix your forum.

            Hope the above explaination helps.

            Cheers.

              C'mon guys it isn't $30 a YEAR. You don't have to renew members access every year if you don't want to.

                True, it isn't $30 A YEAR, they mean to say that it will cost $30 to extend the period in which you hold download-rights BY a year.

                    If you have an owned license, you can still access the Members Area. However after your one year period of download expires, your ability to download files is disabled. When you pay $30.00 to regain access to download, you gain an additional one year.

                        Also, if you buy multiple licenses....you'll need to renew each of 'em individually if you want to have the latest version.

                        I learned that the hard way....but oh well, its worth it.

                          i dont like that if you have multible it should just be one renewal dont need to overmilk the cow. ya already supporting the system by having multi licenses the download area should be one straight fee no matter how many licenses you have unless your a reseller or something. if its all personal forums i wouldnt see why you need to pay 30 for each forum you run. i understand the multi licenses to actually run the forums though

                            You are never obligated to pay the 30 unless you want download access.

                            the 30 dollars a year is about 2.50 a month, which is insanely cheap.

                            It also helps us pay the bills in the long run
