Notes on Renewing
- Once you have purchased Enterprise Architect, if your subscription lapses, you can reinstate it (within a 2 year period) just by paying the renewal fee for the license type you hold. This will entitle you to download the latest version of Enterprise Architect.
- Renewal will only cover the number and type of licenses originally purchased. Any additional licenses must be purchased at the standard price for the edition required.
- If you choose not to renew, you can continue to use your current version of Enterprise Architect, you just won't be able to update it unless you renew.
- If you choose not to renew, you will lose access to the downloadable version of Enterprise Architect from the Sparx website. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you make a back up copy of the Enterprise Architect installation file, so that you can reinstall it at any time in the future.
There are 8 different licenses of Enterprise Architect available, 2 for each edition, a standard and a floating.
If you have a current subscription you can upgrade to a more feature rich edition of Enterprise Architect by purchasing an edition upgrade.
A comparison of Enterprise Architect Editions is available to explain the differences between the editions.
- Upgrading your license does not extend your subscription period.
- Future renewals will be calculated at the new edition's rate.
