Title: More questions on upgrading between versions
Post by: rellek on November 20, 2012, 11:11:24 am
Having gone through most of the forum questions and answers (and issues) around all the various upgrade costs, versions etc. I have one simple question:

If I buy 2.5 Standard today, how do I upgrade to 2.5 Pro later on (which will then be 3.0 Pro of course)?

Do we pay the difference in cost between Pro and Standard or do we have to buy a complete Pro license and end up with a redundant Standard license?

Hi rellek, if you purchase Lumion 2.5 today, you will get a free upgrade to Lumion 3.0 as soon as it's released (from a practical point of view, the license key will work with both Lumion 2 and 3).

Lumion 3.0 can be upgraded to Lumion Pro 3.0 without problems. Arthur knows what the exact fee will be.

Thanks Morten for the prompt reply! As long it doesn't cost more to do it that way round!. What you are therefore saying is that we can upgrade from Lumion 3.0 Standard to Pro without paying the full license fee for Pro, i.e. the difference between Standard and Pro or something to that effect?

How is this done logistically, since all the download options when buying a license are for full licenses only - that's why I asked this, what may seem as a rather silly, question. Perhaps Arthur can tell us a bit more about what is involved here!

We are also a small business and we can't afford to be in a position by January next year and then find out that we have to buy a full license for Pro and end up effectively spending double - i.e., a license for Standard which we want to buy now and then another for Pro once we can afford it.

Arthur says that an upgrade from Lumion 3.0 to Lumion Pro 3.0 will cost you the difference in price between the two versions.

Excellent news - thanks for the help!
