Guess there is not ....
here's my story ...
am using Filemaker for Years. Version 8, upgraded to Version 8.5 and finally upgraded to Version 9.
I bought, and of course payed for it Sep 25. 2008.
Today I saw that there is a new Version of Filemaker.
When I called for the upgrade price I have been told, I have
to pay the full upgrade price. It does not matter if I just payed for an upgrade
from Version 8.5 to Version 9.
Upgrade prices for Version 8, 8.5 and Version 9 to 10 are all the same.
That makes me feel really good.
No - quite frankly that feels like
a rip-off. Just paid $200 US for nothing?
Deeply disappointed Customer
Sorry to hear about your situation, dweidner.
It sounds like you're out of luck, but it turns out that I might not be. Not completely...
I called Customer Service @ 800-325-2747 and was told that there is, in fact, a free upgrade for recent purchasers. If you purchased a license "between December 6, 2008 and January 20, 2009", you can get the upgrade for free. The Customer Service Agent on the phone seemed to think I could slide by with a 12/4 purchase date, but since my reciept has only the 12/18 shipping date on it, I think I should definitely be in the clear (fingers crossed).
To save others the hassle of calling, the place to start the process is:
Hope that helps someone...
Bravo phow4rd! Thanks for the link. Following the instructions. You saved me a lot of time.
I do fall in that time frame as I purchase Dec. 18.
Happy New Year to you!
