AQT v11 Version Upgrade Policy

When you purchase an AQT license, you can use that version of AQT indefinitely without further charge.

There is no charge for point-release upgrades within a version (eg. from v11.0 to v11.1) however there will be a charge if you wish to upgrade to a new version (eg. from v10 to v11).

Older versions of AQT may not be supported - you can continue to use them but bug fixes and new features will not be available to them.

Upgrading to AQT v11

  • the upgrade fee will be US$50 for each user, irrespective of whether you are running AQT Standard or Extended license.
  • volume discounts are available - see pricing
  • there will be a single upgrade fee irrespective of the version you are upgrading from. In other words, you can upgrade from either AQT v9 or AQT v10 to AQT v11 by purchasing a Version 11 Upgrade license.

Existing licensed users evaluating AQT v11

Once you install AQT v11, you will have 30 day trial period in which AQT v11 will operate normally. After this period has expired, AQT v11 will revert to evaluation mode; you must either purchase a Version 11 Upgrade license or de-install AQT v11. You will then have to reinstall AQT v9/v10 or your earlier version.

Support for Older Versions

  • Support for AQT v8 expired on 9th April 2012 (this is 2 years following the release of AQT v9).
  • Support for AQT v9 expired on 24th August 2015 (this is 1 year following the release of AQT v10).
  • Support for AQT v10 expired on 14th August 2023 (this is 1 year following the release of AQT v11).

Grace Period

If you have purchased any AQT v10 license after 1st June 2022, you will be entitled to run AQT v11.

  • If you purchased an AQT Standard or Extended license, you will be able to run AQT v11 for that Edition
  • If you have a Standard Edition license and purchased an Edition Upgrade after 1st June 2022, this will also entitle you to run AQT v11
  • If you purchased a Version 10 Upgrade license after 1st June 2022, you will also be able to run AQT v11

You do not need to take any action to enable the upgrade to v11. AQT v11 will automatically recognise your license key as valid for AQT v11.

Site license-holders

We no longer offer a Site license. Please contact us for further information or help on the version upgrade process.

Holders of historic Site licenses may upgrade by specifying the number of people using AQT and purchasing sufficient version 11 upgrades to cover that number of people.
