PmUpgrade10 - Extension of upgrade and expansion period of the licence key for 10 more years
The period of free upgrades and possible expansion of runtime keys (development keys are not concerned) of the PROMOTIC system is limited to 10 years. After this time period the runtime key still remains fully functional. Only the free upgrades to newer PROMOTIC versions are disabled and the key cannot be expanded by new licences. The corresponding application continues running without any time limitation.
If the owner of the licence wants to upgrade to new PROMOTIC versions or to expand the key by new licences after the 10 year period, then the 60 pricelist item can be purchased. The upgrade (PmUpgrade
) and expansion (PmExtend
) period will be extended by 10 years (i.e. the total period will be 20 years since purchasing the corresponding original key). PmUpgrade10
can also be used for keys older than 10 years. The price is defined as procentual portion of the total price of licences contained in corresponding key - 60%. All purchased licences become a permanent content of the licence key and cannot be removed.
