What to do:

Please send us the list of your existing license keys, as well as the number and desired product variation (Standard, Pro, Enterprise Edition, NamedUser/ConcurrentUser) and the desired new maintenance period of 1, 3 or 5 years.

Requirements:
  • Purchase of at least 10 new PhraseExpress Pro/Enterprise Edition licenses.
  • The edition of the new licenses must be at least the same as the edition of the existing licenses.
  • Existing licenses of varying product editions will be streamlined to a common product edition.
  • The maintenance period must exceed the maintenance period of the existing licenses.
  • Orders can only be placed directly, not in the online shop.

Make sure to actually register your purchased license key in the software. The act of purchasing alone does not license the software. You need to register the license key you received in the delivery email in the software. See the product documentation how to register the license key.

The "About" window informs if maintenance of your license key is expired. If you get license notifications because you are using a software version that has been released after maintenance expiration, you would need to renew maintenance for your license.

Our software is available in different product variations (Standard, Pro, Enterprise) with different sets of features as advertised in the comparison table of the respective shop webpage.

A special feature of our software is that you can try features of all editions, even if you purchased and registered a smaller edition that does not include such feature of any higher edition. However, in such case you will get occasional license reminders which list the features that triggered the license reminder. Those are not included in your license.

This approach allows you to consider upgrading to higher product variation even after your initital purchase decision.

Options:
  • If you already purchased the higher edition, make sure to actually deregister the license key of a smaller edition and register the license key of the higher edition.
  • Consider to upgrade to a higher edition.
  • Discontinue using features that are not included in your license.
