Default Re: Cheapest way to upgrade?

Just to be clear; subscripition means - if you need to use PT, you pay for a month or a year. If the subscription expires, PT no worky. Pay for another month if you want to use PT.

Perpetual license, like I have, means I can use PT forever, but no version after 2020.12.1, because I let my support/update plan expire in december. I'll have to cash out if I were to get a newer version. Or go subscription.


Two important points:
If you have a perpetual license, it will disappear the minute you get a subscription.
And a perpetual license gives you license to run older versions of PT, subscription won't.
