Over a year ago we stopped selling Single Developer licenses for Ext.NET. You can read more here if you’re interested in the back story.
After that change we relaunched with one licensing option only, and renamed the product to Ext.NET Enterprise.
Ext.NET Enterprise permits a team of up to five developers within an organization to be licensed. Teams greater than five people would require multiple Ext.NET Enterprise licenses to cover everyone.
Unfortunately Ext.NET 4 cannot be a free upgrade for Ext.NET 3 customers, and a new Ext.NET 4 license is required.
The following decision tree outlines the options for upgrading or purchasing new.
Let’s run through several typical licensing scenarios which should help clarify the tree above.
#1. I have not previously purchased Ext.NET
This is an easy one to answer. Because you do not own an existing Ext.NET license key, the only option available is down the right side with the purchase of a new Ext.NET 4 Enterprise License and can be purchased directly from the Ext.NET Store.
#2. My company originally purchased two Ext.NET 2 licenses, and would now like to upgrade to Ext.NET 4
There is no upgrade path from the old single Developer license (or multiples) to Ext.NET 4 Enterprise. You would need to purchase a new Ext.NET 4 Enterprise License (store).
#3. We purchased an Ext.NET 3 Enterprise license in July 2015
You are an existing license holder, and you are a Premium Support subscription member, you can take advantage of upgrade pricing.
#4. We purchased an Ext.NET 3 Enterprise license, although have let our Premium Support subscription expire
A new Ext.NET 4 license and Premium Support subscription is required and can be purchased directly from the Ext.NET Store.
With the release of Ext.NET 4 we have moved all new source code development and hosting to GitHub. Ext.NET 4 Enterprise license holders with a Premium Support subscription will be upgraded to the new GitHub repository.
Existing Premium Support members with a previous license (Ext.NET v1, v2 or v3) will remain with access to the SVN source code server.
Ext.NET 4 can be easily installed into your project by using the NuGet Package Manager, or run the following command in the NuGet Console within Visual Studio.
