What happens when the beta expires?

Postby Kenward » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:19 am

The latest beta is due to meltdown on 1 April. (Good choice.) What happens when the beta ends? Will the system recognise our paid for licences? Or will the server at the X1 end complain that we have "activated" the software on too many PCs?

I do not remember being warned to deactivate the current version before installing the beta. Did this happen automatically behind the scenes?

I raise this now so that we don't have any nasty surprises when 8.2 goes live.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Hey Kenward,

Upon expiration, you'll be presented with a notification and an upgrade to the release build for 8.2.

You shouldn't have any issues related to your license or indexes.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
