Will I have to pay for updates?
When you purchase FoCal that purchase includes 12 months of software updates from the date of purchase.
New users get access to the current release of FoCal and all software updates (both major and minor) released over the following 12 months.
When the initial 12 month included updates period expires users continue to be able to use FoCal at the most recent release covered by the included updates period.
A new 12 month updates period can be purchased to gain access to more recent releases of FoCal at a reduced cost, generally 40% of the current FoCal cost (40% of FoCal Plus download price or 40% of FoCal Pro download price depending on which version you're using).
The included updates period is also tied to the comparison data within FoCal Pro. FoCal Pro allows users to compare their results with other FoCal users around the world whilst within the included updates period.
Purchase a new update period by logging into the License Management System and scrolling to the section titled FoCal "Included Updates Period" Status the button there will take you to the secure online store (shown below)
Once the update has been purchased open FoCal and you should see a message your license details have changed (shown below)
Click "Yes", FoCal will re-start and you will be able to download and use the most recent release of FoCal.
If you aren't prompted to update your FoCal license, click "Help" and "License" and "Refresh" and the above message will be displayed.
