Upgrading and activation

stevepatchesstevepatches Posts: 11
Is it normal that SQL Data Compare 8 goes into trial mode and asks for activation key after installing it from the "Check for Updates" menu of a licensed (with support and upgrades) version of SQL Data Compare 7.x?

In the past your sales staff berated me for having too many activations on one key so I'm trying to be extra-careful with this.

I know it seems like a stupid question but I can't find the answer in the FAQs.

    New major version upgrades require a re-activation. Provided this is from the same machine and you have a valid support and upgrades contract this will not use up a new activation so please feel free to go ahead.

    I'll pass this feedback to our technical author as it would seem sensible to document this somewhere!

    Kind regards,
