now would be about the very worst time to start silver support, if your primary purpose (like mine) is for updates, since h16 was just released. the main release updates are significantly irregular and are not real annual cycles, so you’d very likely have to buy/renew silver support AGAIN to obtain harmony 17 when it is released. i’d guess that would be next december at the very earliest (if not 2020), so likely 13+ months.
maybe toonboom could work something out with you if a release comes out right after your contract lapses, or give you a grace period renewal or something. i dunno. they are good folks.
i’ve never used silver support for actual support. nice that it’s there, but i’ve been renewing and upgrading harmony via this plan for years now. it kind of strongarms you into perpetual renewals, because the cost of upgrading w/o support is like buying the software outright, twice. even though i don’t use harmony nearly as much as i should, i still keep the renewals up.
hope this isn’t just spam and i’ve wasted my time responding. what’s with the crap urls at the end of your post?
