  • Maintenance Pack Question


    I have a 3.x license which expired but granted me access to download 4.x up until it expired. (So I'm up to 4.0.3 I think)

    If I want to get the new 4.x versions, do I need to upgrade to 4.x or can I pay the Maintenance Pack price and get both the new 3.x and 4.x releases?

    When you buy the Maintenance Pack you can download 4.0.5 and what comes within the 3 months the pack is active. You need to buy a vb4 license to make sure you can always update to the newest version.

      you could get 4.0.5 by buying the maintenance pack but then you'll be stuck with that or maybe 4.0.6 when everyone else will have 4.1 and even 4.2 and who knows how many more versions- it would be better in the long run to just buy the vb4 license if you're happy with it.

      It seems likely security exploits will be found and only the newest vb4 versions will be patched.

        But if I pay the 175 dollars to upgrade to vb4, I still only get that for a year, right?

          No, you get to download the latest vb4 version forever... i think it's just ticket support that ends after a year.

          From the website:
          Indefinite software license
          Free updates for this version
          Discounts for next version upgrades
          Free forum support

            Okay, one final question:

            Will I get indefinite 4.x.x upgrades, or 4.0.x?

            I assume it's the former as 4.0.x would seem quite overpriced.

              You will get all 4.x.x upgrades, up to and including if they ever made it 4.9.999999
