    I have renewed my 1y subscription.

    But as it's unclear to custumers what happens when the subscription ends here's the result:

    Did the renewal have that expiration date to yesterday? Unlikely. When a licensed expires, the same thing will happen as in the SlySoft days. That version will continue to work but no updates can be applied past the expiration date.

    I have no idea what that says. LOL

    It means the program stops working when a subscription ends (old keyfile).

    The renewal works of course (new keyfile).

    No it doesn't, and never did either in the SlySoft days. It will continue to work. The only thing that stops is your right to apply updates. Applying a version later than your expiration date will give 'license expired' message. No more, no less.

    Weird, that would be a significant change in the functionality neither me nor RedFox 1 were aware of.

    @Ivan or @James is this a bug or intentional. 7.x certainly did not do that.

    I never had a one year license so I do not know, but I think it may have been the same. The lifetime license was different.

    No, it is different now. If the license expires, the license to use the program expires.

    Any chance that can be reverted or is it tied to the new licensing mechanic. Because if this change persist, I can imagine the influx of new topics like this going ballistic with angry users now that the 1st year has elapsed. I'd think allowing the last version but denying OPD access would be a better choice. At least under the old system they could continue to use the last version under their license.

    No I'm not angry - but I think the old solution was of more use for the customers.

    Buying a yearly license is a hassle for the customer , the lifetime purchase is less than 2 years of the yearly purchase, I believe the yearly is 59EUR and the Lifetime is 109 EUR. So if you purchase 1 year licences, even with only one renewal , it is more than a lifetime. And you never have to renew.

    True but that's not the point here (that i'm making). Under the previous system, even if the license expired you could continue to use the last version your license covers. This seems to not be the case anymore and i'm guessing will probably anger a lot of users. Not just the 1 year ones, any time-limited license owners (2,3,4...). A much better solution i think (which sits a bit in between) in my would be to continue to let them use the last version their license allows (like under the old system), but deny OPD access.

    @James your thoughts on this "solution" or my comment in post 10?

    Except when redfox will shutdown and start over again with a new company name "braunfennec", forcing loyal customers to buy a new lifetime licence once again.
    Come on guys, the lifetime pricing plan is not realistic. You may get a lot of cash on day 1, but who will pay for the perpetual updates of the program ? New customers only ? This model has been proven not profitable.

    And as the search will tell you, they know that. They weren't planning on giving that option when RedFox started. It was the users that asked for it, and RedFox reconsidered.

    We are not forcing you to do anything. Either you buy it or use the old version that will not connect to the OPD. Your choice are simple. Join the project or don't. Force you, hardly.
