    Default Upgrade to Upgrade prices??

    I have A5V4. If I purchase A5V5 it should cost me $299. After trying this, If I decide to purchase any of the A5V5 Unlimited Runtime Versions, would I get discount of $299 or I would have to pay it's respective $799 (10 users) $999 (20 users) $1499 (unlimited users)???

    Am assuming correct that Runtime version includes those respective network versions or are they dfferent?

    Thanks.

    Jay

    The runtime will be in addition to.

    These are two different products. If all someone bought was the runtime, it would be impossible to build a database. At least one copy of the full version is required in order to build tables, forms, reports, scripts, etc.

    The only time a company might consider buying only the runtime is when they have an outside developer who does all development off-site. In my case, I still have my customers purchase at least one full version so I can make changes directly on their systems - either in person or using remote access.

    Jayesh,

    ...I have A5V4. If I purchase A5V5 it should cost me $299...

    TRUE

    After trying this, If I decide to purchase any of the A5V5 Unlimited Runtime Versions, would I get discount of $299 or I would have to pay it's respective $799 (10 users) $999 (20 users) $1499 (unlimited users)???

    FALSE

    The only discount off the upgrade price off v5 is if you purchased v4.5, which it appears, you did not. There is no discount off the RT prices if you own v4 or earlier RT. There would be a discount from the RT prices IF you purchased v4.5 RT, then that amount would be discounted.

    In addition to what Cal stated, it appears that you would pay $299 for v5 plus the amount for whatever RT you wanted.

    Thanks for clarifying that Ken. Apparently my mind was still asleep when I read the first part of the question.

    Thanks for making it clear!!!!

    I still have another question on same subject.

    Lets say, once I purchase/upgrade A5V5 for $299 (since I own A5V4)and then purchase A5V5 3 or 5 user network version, would that be cheaper than the current upgrade price of $749.00 0r $1099.00, since I now own new A5V5 or would I be paying full upgrade price as above.

    Is there an unlimited network version of A5V5?

    Thanks.

    Jayesh

    If you purchase a single user v5 for $299 and the decide to later purchase the 3 or 5 user set, I believe you'll pay the upgrade price. You will not get a discount off the upgrade price because you purchased v5 single user. I've not seen anything that allows for further discounts.

    If I buy a single user vervsion A5V5 and later I buy a 3- user network version, can I add the single-user version to the network and becomes 4-user network?

    Good Question,

    Sure, why not? It's a legal copy.
