    Default a5v11 no more support

    I called alpha and they told me after march 2020 they will no longer support a5v11. So if I need to reload Alpha I will not be able to activate. Where are the activation keys? or am I out of luck if I switch computer?
    Thanks for any help,
    Bob

    I emailed Alpha re buying a new Licence to install Alpha V11 onto a new computer as I was struggling to migrate the program from a very old computer. Richard replied to my email almost immediately offering me Alpha Anywhere. I explained that at 69 I was coming to the end of my career and that I just wanted to use Alpha as I had for many years. I did not get an answer. I emailed several more times all without an answer so I gave up.

    What does this mean for existing v11 deployments using the v11 AWS?

    Gil, V11 should activate as long as the new computer has the same name as the old one. If that's not viable, could you create a VM on the new box just for Alpha?

    Did you get to Wembley in '88 - smashing day (though probably not for you!)

    Hi,

    No I did not get to the Cup Final in 1988! We were kicked off the park!! :)

    We are doing Ok this year! Should be Champions come May. I was born just a short walk from the ground and have followed them for over 60 years. More good times than bad :)

    I am not sure what a VM is. I would be grateful for any help! Thanks for getting back to me,

    Gil

    Gil, Provided your new PC is powerful enough you can set up a Virtual Machine (VM) and install any operating system and software to run on it. Give it the same name as your old PC and you should be able to install and activate V11 as well.

    Have a look at https://www.howtogeek.com/196060/beg...tual-machines/ for an idea of what's possible.

    Champions come May - more likely March the rate you're picking up points. Have followed the Dons since '76 while still at a rugby playing school.

    Some of the players in the 80s (Vinnie Jones of this parish) thought they were playing Rugby! :)
