  • How can I buy a VB 3.8 license?

    Hi there,

    How can I buy a VB 3.8 license?
    The website shows only a purchase of VB 4.

    I downloaded a free forum, and then I found it's not legal, so now I want to buy the license to make it legal. But I want to stay in that 3.8 version.

    So my questions are:
    1. How do I buy a 3.8 version?
    2. How do I install a license on an existing forum?

    Thank you very much,
    Emily

    You cannot purchase a vB3 license. you can purchase a vB4 license and use vB3.

    You'll need to be more clear about installing a license on an existing forum.

      Backup your files and database.

      Download the 3.8.x version you need.
      With it overwrite the files on your server.
      Run the upgrader.

      Provided there were no modifications,your forum should run smoothly,now legally.


      vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

        Just to expand a bit, when you purchase vB4, you'll be able to download vB3. Once you have downloaded it, you can overwrite the files on your server with the ones you downloaded. Unless you had any core file-edits, there shouldn't be any issues.

          Also, the use of vB3 instead of vB4 still marks down on your license so though you are using vB3, you won't be able to use vB4 on a different site unless you purchase another license.
