Updating licenses to V6

Postby Dennis Kuypers » Wed Dec 14, 2016 5:54 pm

Hello community,

Update your existing license
Pandoras Box Version 5 to Version 6 updates are free for the following license types:
  • Server PRO
  • Server EDU
  • Offline Manager
In addition to that, all software-only licenses bought after 2. May 2016 (02.05.2016) or software-only licenses that were upgraded* after 2. May 2016 (02.05.2016) also receive a free V6 license update.
Please check if you can run Pandoras Box V6 before you contact us. We have been adding V6 keys to the dongles that we recently sold.

To claim a free update, please follow the steps on our Update Procedure Site.

If your license is not part of the free upgrade program please contact our local offices and Distributors for pricing.

Adding V6 to your dongle will keep any previous versions intact. You can still use PB V5 or WD V4.7 after adding the V6 licenses.

Regards
Dennis

* this offer is not valid for licenses that were upgraded free of charge

It depends on the version:

WD Free Edition is Free and replaces WD Std.
WD 6.0 replaces WD Pro 4.x, the update is NOT free, unless bought the licenses was bought after 2. May 2016 (02.05.2016) or license was upgraded* after 2. May 2016 (02.05.2016).
WD Unlimited Webclients replaces WD Ultimate, this update is also not free.

Please contact your Christie Sales Person for prices.

Hi, Can you please let me know when V6 will no longer be a RC? We have upgraded all PB licenses (at a very big cost!).
Still only being a RC with a warning to use at your own risk is a little frustrating as it has been available for some time now.
Cheers

Hi, when I bought my Server Light, we were told that software updates are free for ever. Why do we have to pay to upgrade to version 6?

Hi Petetdc,

we are currently fixing the last critical bugs of the Release software.
The Release will be out soon.

I apologize for the delay and kindly ask you for some more patience.

All my best,
Tom

Hi frozenwaffles,

I can understand your irritation but in the end you do not pay for the update to V6!

The product structure of the Pandoras Box line changed.
In V6 there are no different server software versions (LT/STD/PRO) anymore.
There is only one Server software version which is equal to the former PRO version.

So what you have to pay for is the upgrade from Server LT to PRO.
For all existing PRO servers the update to V6 is free of charge.

I do not know when you bought your server but I am sure that at this time it was not known that a change in the product line is coming up.

I hope for your understanding.

All my best,
Tom

Hi, ok i will go back to my distributor about this. I think this will mean the end of Pandoras Box for us though as it will be price prohibitive...
