Support renewal is $49 for each stand-alone license of any ViEmu, $69 for the ViEmu OfficeDev or DBPro packs, and $79 for the Enterprise Pack. You need to log in to the Symnum customer to renew support. If you have never logged into the customer area, you will need to use the password-recovery mechanism with the email address used for the purchase. If you want to change the email address associated to an existing license purchase, please contact us.

The ViEmu/VS license covers both ViEmu/VS "Classic" (for VS 2002 to VS 2008) and ViEmu/VS2010-12. If you had a license for ViEmu/VS, you will need to renew support, and the new license will work both for ViEmu/VS "Classic" and Viemu/VS2010-12. It will also include 1-year of free upgrades for both ViEmu/VS "Classic" and ViEmu/VS2010-12.
