License code not working

If you're having problems unlocking the software with your license code, try the following steps:

  • Make sure that you're trying to unlock the correct version of Vectoraster or Patternodes (For example a Vectoraster 7 code will not work in Vectoraster 6).
  • Make sure that your code and e-mail are entered exactly as they appear in your e-mail, without any extra characters before or after.

Updates and upgrades

All licenses for Vectoraster and Patternodes are one time purchases that grant you the right to use the software as long as you can. This also includes free updates of the same major version (as in Vectoraster 7.x.x if you have a license for Vectoraster 7) for as long as such updates are released.

If and when a new major version update is released (for example Vectoraster 7 after Vectoraster 6), this will not be a free upgrade, but there is a much cheaper upgrade license you can purchase to upgrade if you own a license for the previous version. Apart from being cheaper and requiering a license for a previous version these upgrade licenses are the same as the full price new user licenses.
