Upgrading to vB5 - question on licenses

Not open for further replies.
I'm planning on upgrading to vB5 (I know - no one likes it, but that's not the point here), and I'd like to know whether or not the licenses for plugins that I am currently using on a vB 4.x forum can be used for the vB 5 plugin counterparts - if available. Or do I need to purchase a new product? Please let me know - thanks!

You will need to upgrade any licences with a vB5 equivalent via your Client Area, but I would strongly recommend that you do not do this.

Not only are most of your products not compatible, but the ones that are, have reduced functionality compared to their vB4 counterparts. You can find the details of these missing features in the product information pages for the vB5 versions, under the "Missing Features" headers.
