New IDM licensing in action
As earlier announced in January, we have updated our licensing and distribution platform to enable our users to install, activate, and update their IDM products in a much more seamless manner.
Under the old system, a license would have had to be manually entered each time a new version was released, and then when updates and point releases were made available, the user had to manually check for them - then submit a free upgrade request from our site, and then wait on our reply... and so on...!
Welcome to the future. Under our new license platform, the product does not need a new code with each new version and updates are automatically detected and install automatically or with your permission. Your new license knows if your upgrade is free or if you have unlimited lifetime upgrades... easy to install, easy register, and most of all... easy to stay current with the latest IDM patches, updates, and new releases!
Those that have registered UC v8.00 are already enjoying its new powerful Folder Sync engine and Find Duplicates feature, as well as the benefits of the new license system! This month's update will automatically be detected by UC v8.0, prompt the user that it's available and free, and upon user permission, install the newest maintenance release.
Sound familiar? Of course. Many of your favorite apps, plugins and operating systems already use this technology like Java, Firefox, Visual Studio, Snagit, MS Vista/Win 7, Mac OS, iTunes, anti-virus clients, and so on. We are all used to the programs and hardware we use on a daily basis notifying us of an available update, and requesting permission to install now or later.
The time for IDM to provide this level of service to our multi-million strong user community has come.
The new licensing platform allows near real-time distribution of our latest advancements in performance and functionality and at the same time, offers flexibility. To move your license, just deactivate via the Help menu and reinstall on another machine... You can then reactivate your license using your original license ID and password. Would you like to use your single-user license on an extra PC or laptop? No problem, your license comes with an additional activation... compliments of IDM. In fact, not much has changed at IDM regards to our user based philosophy. We still price our products so that anyone in need of a powerful file management solution can afford the best there is and, we still believe in over-delivering on the value of free upgrades so that users still enjoy a full year of complimentary upgrades with any paid registration or upgrade.
We are thrilled that we can offer these advancements to the world's most professional user community and we appreciate your trust in IDM as your preferred solution provider.
