Q: If I purchase the software, should I remove the evaluation version prior to installing my purchased version?

Q: I bought a license for a program. Do I need to buy another license each time this program is upgraded or a newer version is released?

A: No.
For A-book and A-Converter: when you purchase a license, you automatically purchase all future releases and updates that will be released within 1 year from the date of purchase. It means that during one year you can download and install the latest versions of the software from our site, and the activation code that you received from us will work with the latest product version. If you don't want to purchase an upgrade, you can use the program forever; it will never expire, but you won't be able to use the latest version. If you would like to upgrade to a newer version, you will be able to do so after purchasing a discounted upgrade license;
Dialog Box Assistant has a life-time license. It means that all the future updates are free.

Q: Do you offer quantity discounts?
