  • what does life-time license mean?

    Hi,

    What does a "live-time" license mean? Can I buy the forum now and will always get all the updates, new releases and so on or is this only a life-time license for vB4 (so I'd have to buy another license once vB 5 is out?)?

    Thanks,
    fiNal

    sorry for my bad english I hope, you understand me anyway

    Life time means that you always can use it, you don't need to renew all upgrades are included in the vBulletin 4. You pay again if you want vBulletin 5 but you don't need to upgrade if you are happy with vBulletin 4.

      fiNal, you've got it exactly right. You will have the license for life, along with updates and releases. But it's a license for vBulletin 4, not a license for vBulletin as a whole. So yes, you'd have to buy a new license for vBulletin 5 if you wanted it.

        I've come to realize the reason vb offered "Lifetime" support for their "gold" version. It's going to take a lifetime for them to release a STABLE Product that WORKS. If you haven't already made the mistake of purchasing this product, don't waste your time and money. Support consists of "Upgrade" and your errors will get better. Except that they don't - they create hundreds of additional errors and then you'll be told, "It's just your browser, it works fine" until HUNDREDS of other people complain too.

          Instead of ranting in tons of threads, why don't your threads where you need support so we can help you

            I'm sorry, it's called FRUSTRATION. I have a number of unanswered "support" threads that are MONTHS old now:

            Did actually receive a response on this, I was told to Update again.


            I thought the Point of the "Support" forum was to receive support and reduce the number of tickets submitted. Is that incorrect, would you prefer that I submit Help Tickets to vb every time, because quite frankly, I thought I WAS posting the questions where I was supposed to!

                lol... seems the kids are getting restless before school starts

                lifetime means you can run the forum forever (just like always) but if you want updates and you have 4.x now, you'll need to Renew to get updates with 5.x

                    It's probably worth pointing out that there is no such thing as a Lifetime License of vBulletin.

                    Wondering where the OP got the idea there was..
                    My Live vB5 Site - NZEating.com
                    vBulletin Hosting | vBulletin Services - Need hosting for your vB? Need it installed? Something else? Let me take that hassle off your hands.
