How does a HighDesign license work?

  • Your license is permanent, it is not a subscription. You decide when to renew.
  • Your license includes a one-year maintenance plan that allows you to install all the updates released during the year of validity. For example, if you purchase on June 1, 2023, you will receive all the major and minor updates until June 1, 2024, regardless of their version number.
  • When your maintenance plan expires, you can renew for another year and install the latest updates. Alternatively, you can continue to use the version of HighDesign that you have, for as long as you want, but you won't be able to receive any further updates.
