Individual Products Moving to Subscription Options Only
As previously announced, the end of sales of perpetual licenses for most individual products - including AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, Revit LT, 3ds Max, etc. are effective today.
Most of the individual products will continue to be available for purchases as subscription options only.
Learn more about flexible subscription options for individuals, teams, and enterprises, or talk to the Salesoft Team if you have any questions.
No More Late Subscription Renewals
As of 1st February 2016 there will NO longer be any Grace Period for Maintenance Plan Renewals, they will be in line with Subscription (rental) Contracts which currently have NO GRACE PERIOD.
This means that you must renew your Contract before it expires; it will NOT be renewable after the Expiry Date.
If you have a Contract that is expiring over a weekend/long weekend or public holiday, you will need to have it renewed beforehand as it will not be able to be renewed after it has expired.
The best path for you is to ensure you simply renew ON TIME.
