Clarification re licensing when upgrading from 11 to 12

Like many others I guess, upgrading is the usual way that existing FileMaker clients get from one version to another.

 

I have read elsewhere that the EULA when upgrading makes the use of the previous version illegal from a licensing point of view. Is this the general understanding ?

 

If this is the case, is there a "transition" period (very important with change of format) that allows the use of both, legally ?

 

I know it is possible to have many versions of FileMaker on the same machine, but to do so from a licensing point of view, they each need to be full product rather than upgrades as I understand it.

 

Thanks

Glenn
