What does free updates period mean?
For instance, you have purchased a license for SDExplorer Advanced at March 10, 2012. You have the right to download and install all published updates and new versions released within a year since that date, that is, until March 10, 2013. If say at March 18, 2013 a new update for SDExplorer Advanced will be released, you won't be able to install it unless you purchase a license renewal. Or you can stay with your current version if you wish.
We would like to underscore this again: the free updates period expiry doesn't mean you can't continue using SDExplorer Advanced and doesn't make it stop functioning. This date only sets the period following which you can't install new updates, but your installed version continues working as before.
How do I choose the suitable license type?
If you're a home user, and own several computers and/or notebooks, the license you need is likely a Single User License so you could activate SDExplorer on up to 3 PCs. If you only have one computer and you don't plan to install SDExplorer on other computers you can benefit from purchasing a Single PC License instead.
If you're a corporate client or a representative of an educational or other institution that suggests using of a computer by unlimited and undefined number of people, you should choose a Single PC License. The number of purchased license must meet the number of computers you activate the program on. You can choose the desired number of licenses at the order processing page at Avangate. We also offer volume discounts. You can get the detailed info about discounts also at the order processing page.
If I purchase 2 Single User licenses how many computers I can activate SDExplorer on?
In this case, the number of purchased licenses is multiplied by the number of possible activations of each license, that is, you can activate SDExplorer Advanced on 6 PCs.
Are there any functional differences between different license types?
No, the functionality of SDExplorer Advanced doesn't depend on the license type.
