Upgrade from version 2010 and older (i.e. Embird 2010, 2008, 2006, 2004, 2003, Plus, 6.0) to Embird 2017 is a paid upgrade and a new main registration password is required. Otherwise, the new software runs only in demo mode.
The registration numbers for all plug-ins from previous Embird versions are valid in Embird 2017. However, the plug-ins are not functional until you insert the new main registration password.
In other words, if you are registered user of previous version of Embird (version 2012 or older), your plug-in registration numbers for Alphabets, Font Engine, Iconizer, Digitizing Studio, Sfumato Stitch and Cross Stitch will work also in Embird 2017. You only need to pay the upgrade fee for the basic Embird.
Upgrade from version 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 to the new version 2017 is free of charge and new password is not needed.
