Update Subscriptions and the End of Upgrades

February 13th, 2018 Posted by CodeInsightTV, Embarcadero, News 2 comments

 

Note, due to some customers needing longer to get orders processed in their companies, the Upgrade Amnesty has been extended until April 30th.

 

We’ve had a lot of questions from customers since Malcolm posted his article about Embarcadero’s planned changes to their Upgrade versions. So many in fact, that we asked him to record a short video answering the most common ones.

So, if you’re wondering:

  • What’s an Update Subscription?
  • What happens to my licenses if I don’t renew?
  • Am I eligible to upgrade?
  • Can I upgrade from Delphi 1?
  • Does he really wave his hands around that much when he talks?

then this is the video for you. (more…)

Changing your RAD Studio Serial without Reinstalling

It was only today that I got around to updating the VM I use for demos to RAD Studio 10.2.1. Unlike the VM’s I use for customer projects, this one¬†is using my MVP License. I installed 10.2.1 no problems, but upon running I got the following error message:

An Update Subscription for Embarcadero Delphi 10.2 is required which has expired prior to this release

 

After a moment of confusion, I realised I might have used my old Berlin MVP license during the install, so the error message is probably correct.

This is easy enough to fix, but I’ve had a few customers ask me about this so I thought I’d grab some screenshots and write up how to replace serials in a RAD Studio install.
