Handy Software Lab is constantly developing its software. We release an updated version at least once a month. With each new version the functionality and usability of the software are improved and new modules and features are added. On this page you can find the information about the process of upgrading your software to the new version.
Handy Software Lab license grants you the right to run the software on your desktop computers or servers for an unlimited amount of time. In addition, Handy Software Lab license holders have full access to new versions and support (free of charge for a period of one year from the date of purchase). In order to extend this access, license holders can purchase a one-year update and support subscription plan. The policy affects the licenses bought on and after January 1, 2007. For all the licenses bought prior to this date, customers retain full access to all new minor versions and updates as before.
The update subscription plans are available at the "Order page" and can be purchased from the “Customer Control Panel” http://www.hs-lab.com/customers/

Such plans are sold on a per license basis. No updates may be used to update the licenses for which the yearly support and update subscription plan has not been bought or has terminated.
Purchasing the plan for a license, you get the right to install new versions only on the domain for which the license has been activated. Please note that update subscription plans are bought to get access to new software versions, but no fee is charged for the right to continue using the software without update. All critical security patches and service packs are available to all customers free of charge.
Normally within several days after the release of the new version we issue an update package for it. This package allows you to perform the update to the new version. The update process is done through Handy Software Lab Customer Control Panel. In the Customer Control Panel all update packages available to you and will be given only there.

You may renew before or after the expiration of your previous coverage. Regardless of when the renewal fee is paid, the coverage is extended for a year from the end of the previous year of coverage.
