  • About License,

    I couldnt find an appropriate place to post this, so i hope this will do,

    Ive just bought a VB, got all the confirmation via email, now i thought the License enabled me to run the board on my site for indefinitely but on the email it says my license will expire next year???? I purchased the owned version,

    please somebody put me out of my misery, thanks!

    With an owned license you can run the software forever - that doesn't end. The listed expiration is for your access to the download new versions from the Members Area. You get one year of free upgrades with your license. After this the current cost is just $30/yr for continued access to new versions. However, this is optional and you are allowed to continue running your current version for as long as you like.

    You will continue to have download access for any versions released while your license was active.

      I see, many thanks! I thought if my license ran out then my board will become illegal without a license,

        If you paid $160, you can run vB indefinitely. You can regain access to the Members Area (including downloads) for one year by paying $30.

        If you paid $85, you can run vB for 1 year.

          You don't have to pay $30 on the expiration date either, it can be paid for whenever.

            Well, on or BEFORE the expiration date, to be exact.

              Actually, I read somewhere else that it could be whenever.
              For example, if the next version doesn't get released by the time my members' area access expires, I wouldn't want to renew right away. I always like an extra few days.

              My access expires in less than a month - I hope 3.5.0 comes out by then!

                You can let it lapse for as long as you like.

                  Oh yeah sorry, my mistake.
