Maintenance Renewal and Upgrade Policy
Maintenance and Support Renewal
Each PHP Tools for Visual Studio License entitles you to all major and minor updates for a period of one year from the date of purchase. After this period, you may continue to use PHP Tools but are no longer entitled to free updates. In order to continue receiving updates you will need to renew your Maintenance and Support Subscription.
Renewals add one year from the expiration date of the previous Maintenance and Support Subscription, not from the date of purchase of the renewal.
You are eligible to renew your subscription if your subscription has not yet expired or it has been expired for less than 90 days.
Upgrade to New Visual Studio
Valid Maintenance and Support Subscription allows you to upgrade to a new Visual Studio version at no cost!
You will receive a renewal notification email when your Maintenance and Support Subscription is about to expire with instructions of how to take advantage of the renewal offer. You can also choose to automatically renew your Maintenance and Support Subscription. The auto-renew option can be enabled or disabled at any time.
For your convenience, PHP Tools for Visual Studio are using Visual Studio Update process. We recommend to turn on automatic check for updates. This way Visual Studio will notify you when an update is available and you can install it directly from Visual Studio. Please make sure your Maintenance Subscription is valid before updating or turning on auto-renewal for your subscription.
PHP Tools for Visual Studio comes with a trial free of charge for 30 days to ensure that it satisfies your requirements before purchasing the full version.
Due to the nature of software license, no refund or exchange is available after activation was made.
