    Good news. I assume the price is the same as when they bought or else they would have announced a change in price plus it wouldn't have made sense with the business version in such a close price.

    I would assume the price will remain the same, but things can change.

    The purpose of the sales suspension was to devote maximum company resources possible to the Enterprise sector at this time. That's the simple reason.

    Think about what is required for a new rollout and deployment across an entire nation and literally many tens of thousands of endpoints.

    Yeah, but on 5.xxx personal, all they had to do is leave the webpage up and let people order. As Judge Judy used to say. " If it doesn't make sense it probably isn't true"

    They don't want new customer because new customers will in most cases need more support. So by allowing renewals you keep the revenue you currently have with the least amount of human recourses spend. The new expansion and being hard to hire proper support with such a short notice means you have to allocate your staff in the best possible place to earn money which for them is business market.

    The executives probably considered other factors and they certainly are not going to justify their decisions to security forum members. It's sounds horrible, but that is how executive boards work. Because, at the end of the day, sound reasoning and explanations do not prevail. It is the rabble, mob mentality - with its never-ending dissatisfaction and acrimonious discord - that, at least on the security forums, prevails.

    The reality of it, no matter what explanation is proffered, it will be unacceptable or found lacking in one way or another.

    Same thing happened on the forums when Emsisoft decided to cut EIS.

    You cannot make money by simply making a security soft available on a webpage. There are those that try and eventually fail. To make money, it takes a whole lot more than making a soft available for purchase on a website.

    The decision is common sense. It is about resource allocation and the reality of day-to-day business operations and what is required to fulfill contractual obligations.

    All security soft firms are businesses. Businesses are in the business of making money - a fact that is fundamental to any business. Money has to come first. Otherwise, there is no money for the business to continue on.

    This is only for version 5, for version 4 still LT. Am I right or misunderstand?

    Version 4.X are lifetime version licenses. There is no need to renew a version 4 license. Version 5 is subscription and requires renewal.

    You are correct.

    Where did you obtain AppGuardSetup_4_4_7_5.exe ?

    The last official version 4 is 4.4.6.1.

    Forseeable future means open-ended, but why don't you go ahead an spell it out for everyone. Since you know so much please explain what it really means.

    Your comment just proves the truth of my prior post:

    I don't really understand a word "forseeable", that doesn't mean they are going to discontinue AppGuard Personal? Or are they preparing for some updates, and because of that, suspending sales temporaly to not get more support requests from new individual customers?

    Forseeable, in this case, means Personal license sales have been suspended until such time that the company decides to resume sales.

    The details are in the original post:

    "AppGuard Personal has not been officially discontinued"

    I've been an executive. I've worked at firms small and large. This essentially means it's dead. They're giving it the soft-kill treatment.. That is 'Let's not kill it outright, but let's make it die.'.

    It doesn't matter to me, I haven't used it since the first versions nor will I ever use it for my own reasons. (cough, VA)
