Convert a subscription license to a perpetual license

For those interested in transitioning from a subscription-based license to a perpetual one, you have the option to purchase a new perpetual license once your current subscription term concludes.

Should you wish to make this switch before your subscription ends, please reach out to us at, providing your license details, and we'll discuss the available options with you.


Convert a perpetual license to a subscription license

If you're looking at moving from a perpetual license to a subscription model, it's important to note that direct conversion isn't available. However, you can either purchase a new monthly or annual subscription license or opt for auto-renewing your software maintenance. The latter essentially functions like an annual subscription, ensuring you always have active maintenance and enjoy the benefits of an ongoing subscription.


Convert a single user subscription to a concurrent use subscription

For users contemplating the conversion of a single user subscription to a concurrent use subscription, the process is straightforward. Once your current subscription term is over, you can acquire a new concurrent use subscription license.

If you're in the midst of an annual single user subscription and wish to transition to a concurrent use model sooner, please email us your license details at One of our account managers will reach out to you to make sure we are providing you the right licensing solution and to provide an estimate tailored to your needs.


Transfer a Golden Software license to another user

If you no longer require access to the software, or want to gift your license to another user, please contact our dedicated Customer Success Team with the following information:

  1. The serial number or product key you wish to transfer
