Your post is confusing. Both options are to extend support, the more expensive is to get priority support. Both will give you support for 1 year and will also allow you to upgrade to v5 if you want.Since my upgrade button is greyed out, I can't automatically do the update. If I purchased the extended support, does that mean I'm also upgrading to V5? The anual fee is only if you want the support right but not needed?
Ok... so in a nutshell, if you buy either support, you'll get the v5 upgrade.Your post is confusing. Both options are to extend support, the more expensive is to get priority support. Both will give you support for 1 year and will also allow you to upgrade to v5 if you want.
There is an option for 35 that does not auto-renew. Home - Blue Iris SoftwareOk... so in a nutshell, if you buy either support, you'll get the v5 upgrade.
When placing the order, if I don't want the service support to automatically renew, then pay with paypal.
I don't know why they just don't have an option to select auto renew or not or what have you.
Thanks... The link from BI didn't take me to that link you provided.

Understood, what I'm saying is if you opt to do autorenew and pay the $30 and you don't pay with a CC.What if you don't end up paying again when your subscription expires. Is BI going to ban your license until you pay the renew fee or you pay the $5 differenceWhat do you mean by backdoor? As with many other products/software, there is a discount if you sign up for auto renew.
No, as explained on the blue iris website, you will be entitled to v5 indefinitely.Understood, what I'm saying is if you opt to do autorenew and pay the $30 and you don't pay with a CC.What if you don't end up paying again when your subscription expires.

It's kind of funny that we're discussing this, it's only $5 difference and we've both probably wasted more $$discussing this matter in the last few minutes lol I'm just thinking "out loud"
I have been running BI5 since June 1 on two machines and it has been rock solid. I feel most of my bugs or issues have been resolved (still working on the remote management ) one and that's about it for now.Hi All,
So whats the view now please guys, I have read back over this post but could not definitively decide if the major issues with upgrading had now been resolved.
Do we know how many of the major issues have been fixed (not having a update log makes this really hard to understand).
Ive held off from upgrading to ensure I dont hit initial upgrade issues, so what the consensus now please?
So you've never heard of Office 365? Many softwares do this. It's called annual license or perpetual license. It's cheaper annually because if you stop paying it stops working usually. If you buy it once you own it forever but support is on a time limit. Hence why it's more expensive.Never seen any other software make non-renewing licenses more expensive.
Always someone complaining about 5 dollars. Lots of software packages give you a discount for auto renew. You might not be familiar with software in general.Never seen any other software make non-renewing licenses more expensive.
