Important Notice for Registered AMSSE v6 Customers

Important Notice for Registered AMSSE v6 Customers

  • Since version 7 has redesigned the licenses and the charge mode, so, you need to know the following things to decide your choice.
  • v7 will import your old data automatically, and we use the different path to store v7 and v6 data, even the program files are stored in the different location. So, don’t worry about losing data.
  • The most important thing is: v6 controls if you can upgrade product version, but the license does not expire, v7 is contrary – controls if your license will expire, but can FREE upgrade product version forever. So, if your old license & upgrades package allow you to upgrade v7, we will transfer your license automatically according to your paid amount and the new price. Here is the detail:
    • Personal license with 1/2 year(s) upgrades: no change.
    • Personal license with lifetime upgrades: transfer to 1.4 years (count from today – Mar 01, 2016, the same below) Personal license. 1.4 = $69.99 / $49.99 (your paid amount / now 1 year license price, the same below).
    • Home license with 1/2 year(s) upgrades: transfer to Business license (the license expiration date is your old upgrades package expiration date).
    • Home license with lifetime upgrades: transfer to 1.2 years Business license. 1.2 = $119.99 / $99.99.
    • Enterprise license with 1/2 year(s) upgrades: transfer to 1.5/1.6 years Enterprise license. 1.5 = $299.99 / $199.99, 1.6 = $319.99 / $199.99.
    • Enterprise license with lifetime upgrades: transfer to 1.75 years Enterprise license. 1.75 = $349.99 / $199.99.
    • As above, this is a big premium – we will count your license expiration date from today – Mar 01, 2016, even you purchased at Jan 01, 2014! That is, we regard as you purchased it today!
    • If your paid amount is not above standard price, we will calculate your license expiration date by your actual payment.
  • If you do not want to transfer your license, you can still use v6, you only need to do the following things after installed v7:
    • Put back the v6 shortcut icon to “Start -> All Programs -> Startup” menu, and delete the new shortcut of v7 under this folder, to ensure automatically running the right version when Windows starts.
    • Tell us you do not want to transfer your license and want to use v6 still, we will change it back to be compatible with v6, just eMail us at support[at]AutoMailSender.com.

    But we strongly recommend that you upgrade to v7. Because v7 has dozens of very very important features / improvements / bug fixes for about 4 years (2012~2016, see below update history).

  • Please visit AMSSE’s Order page to know the new license mode, offers and prices.
