When you click OK, please note that this does NOT automagically update the software that is installed on your computer!

You still need to click Add Months to extend the license (if applicable).  And you also need to click Use License and follow the on-screen instructions to download, install, and activate the V8 software on your computer.

Only once you have clicked Use License and actually installed the V8 software will you be able to use V8.



Upgrading from V6 or earlier versions

The process of upgrading from a perpetual license (Version 6 or earlier) is slightly different.

Click the Add or Upgrade Licenses button.

Any residual value from your existing license ("trade-in value") will be applied to the upgrade in the form of free months.

If you see an error message or a "contact us" pop-up box, that means that we need additional information before you can add or upgrade a license. Just let us know what you are trying to add/upgrade and we will assist you promptly!
