Your Software Maintenance Agreement Has Expired

The SoftwareKey system has features that allow you to prevent customers whose maintenance plans have expired from installing new versions of your software. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in how we can help you in this process. By simply adding the customer`s software maintenance expiration date to their local license file upon activation and adding a build date in the software binary, a simple date comparison can capture customers trying to install a newer version of your software on a computer for which it is not licensed. How can I renew my maintenance contract? You can purchase an extension of the license maintenance agreement at any time from 180 days before the expiration of the contract up to 1 month after the expiration of the contract (i.e. you have a one-month grace period during which you can renew your contract). The cost per year is 20% of a full industrial license or 25% of a full academic license. At the end of the one-month grace period, agreements are evaluated with the total due re-maintenance plus a reinstatement fee of 25% of the annual maintenance costs. So how can you make it easier for your paying customers to install regular updates while making it harder for customers with expired maintenance plans to install updates if they both have access to the new installer? The answer is simple: just track the software maintenance expiration date in the app`s license file along with other license settings and fingerprint data. Let`s say today is November 1st and the customer`s maintenance expired on October 1st. If you create a new version of your software today, it will include November 1 as the build/release date. Because the customer`s software maintenance expired before the release date, the customer is not technically authorized to run this version of the software. Note that the software you purchased will stop working when your maintenance expires. It is simply your access to new releases and technical support that is limited when your maintenance expires.

Ensure that the software can “update” the license periodically so that the local license file can remain synchronized when the central license server is updated after the customer has purchased a subscription renewal. This allows for the continued use of your software updates by a paying customer. What is the Maintenance Contract Program? Each copy of PLS_Toolbox and Solo (and certain other Eigenvector products as listed on the product website) comes with a one-year license maintenance agreement. As long as this maintenance agreement is in effect, you will receive all product updates free of charge. Your maintenance contract also gives you access to our technical support services – users whose maintenance contracts are outdated may be denied support by our staff. While your maintenance is in effect, you can upgrade licenses for free from the “Buy/Upgrade” tab of your Eigenvector Research user account. After the license maintenance agreement expires, you can only download product versions for which you have already received a license. GFI Archiver v14 stops archiving e-mails and searches in the archive are no longer possible with an expired subscription.

Regularly updating an application is almost always an inevitable requirement in the lifecycle of a successful software product. If your application is dynamic in nature and you want to offer new features to your customers at regular intervals, you can use a software maintenance subscription to market new versions of your software product for a transaction fee or subscription. Since the license file often contains the fingerprint of the activated computer, it is unique to each installation of your software. If this license is created on the license server, simply specify the expiration date of the software maintenance and make sure that the activation process includes this date. The local license file can then contain the maintenance expiration date. The date comparison can take place in the installer even before the user is allowed to install the software, or it can be done the first time the software is run. The next step is to modify the software build process to include a hard-coded release date somewhere in the source code or resource. Once the local license file contains the maintenance expiration date and the software the build or release date, all you have to do is compare the two dates to see if the build was released after the client`s maintenance expired.
