    It makes it sound like I pay the normal owned license fee ($180) as long as I upgrade within the first 60 days, and if not, I pay $180 on top of the leased license price ($100).
    It is full price for the owned license after 60 days. I have been using that exact same terminology for many years and honestly you're the first person that ever complained about the wording of it.

      I would complain - but it would get me exactly nowhere LOL
      And yes - I understand providing an incentive for vB customers to purchase owned licenses - but just perhaps... The new 4.0 concept should be: No over charging customers who already own at least one vB license MORE for the leased to owned upgrade -- A bit of a break for tried-and-true vB customers! Now - wouldn't THIS be a novel concept?

        And you won't, consider the point dropped. You used an example, I used an example. My example was relative to my experience, yours was to yours

        Really? Steve LIED? Well, let's look at that, ok?

        I don't see where he says she'd be paying less than full license price here???
        You owe Steve an apology for that one I'd say. I'm not one to get on the kiss tail end (or not) bandwagon, but calling him a liar, accusing him of lying is harsh.

        The cost of purchasing a leased then upgrading to owned (two separate transactions) has always been higher than purchasing the owned license the first time (one transaction.) It's been that way since 2000.
        Thanks for clearing that one up for me, Steve. I wasn't sure when that went into affect. Obviously, yeah, there's got to be some sort of a transaction fee going on there, it just seems to hit multiple license owners harder (or maybe the upgrade from leased to owned price dropped with multiple licenses, I can't recall, honestly). Either way, thanks for clearing that one up

        Going by publicly available information (which has neither been confirmed nor denied in whole by IB/Jelsoft), this point will be moot in 4, as there will be no leased licenses. Again, some might consider this 'rumor', but the information was made public, and some of it has already been shown true.

          Really - I hadn't heard that... Any link to that info?

            If you use google creatively, you can come up with it . I'm sure it's still pretty highly ranked up there. I'm not going to post the link here, though. This is pretty well discussed amongst these forums, however, or at least it was for a while, not sure if those threads remain.

              A leased licence costs $100, however if you upgrade within 60 days you will only pay an additional $100.

              After 60 days you will have to pay an additional $180 which is the full price that Steve was referring to.

                Got a link

                So when vb 4 comes out will it still be the same price to upgrade your owned licence as just now ($40.00) or will there be a totally new pricing?

                  It's complicated, and no details have been officially announced. So just sit tight and wait for an announcement.

                      We really shouldn't be speculating on information that has not been made official.
