Updating from v13 Pro Pricing?  en

Author: J. Dudley
Visited 57, Followers 1, Shared 0  

I have been using and purchasing updates for many years but at the moment X5 is getting little use. You have stopped supporting v13 but in order to be able to use your software, it seems an update is a must. even at 40% discount, the update is over £100 and with no income for months due to covid, its not affordable. Is there a cheaper way to update my current software to a usable state, or is this now a throw away program? I have used X5 for many years but the updates are getting more and more expensive. Is there a solution for me please?.

The web sites I produce are 100% unpaid and produce no income.

J. Dudley, I too moved to pro many moons ago and yes I agree that the upgrade costs appear prohibitive.

I have a number of clients who have followed my recommedations to use WX5 but find Evolution acceptable for their requirements. Perhaps the answer is to downgrade to Evolution (your optional objects will continue to functon) and maintain existing websites in your old v13 where functionaslity loss would be unacceptable.

By comparison, Evo is great value for money.

(sadly if you wanted to use new features then your existing websites created in v13 Pro would need to be totally recreated in Evo current version if you wished to move them to the new platform)

Hello there!

At the moment, the most convenient discount you can have access to is the 40% one you mentioned, which will be still active today only. 

Also, please consider that if you want to import your Professional 13 projects you necessarily need Pro 2021.1, otherwise it won't be possible to import the project files. 

Please let me know if I can be of further help. Kind regards.
