Quoting PAIN-KILLER,

i have a question, if i purchased windowblinds 7 do i get a free update to windowblinds 8? or do i have to re purchase the new version?

If you purchased after March 1st, 2013 then you get the upgrade for free.  Otherwise, you would qualify for the upgrade version at $6.99.

Not sure if I should ask this question here so if not just please delete my post or ask me. Just thought this was as good a place as any.

OK, I have been a subscriber of OD and Wc for years. I have been waiting for WB8 to come out of beta and now it has. Since you say WB comes with SS I guess that means I only have to download WB8 to have both? Or is the included version different than the seperate version?

 So when I install it will install both? Should I uninstall my curent versions of WB and SS?

Thank you.

SkinStudio is still a separate download from WB8.  A person doesn't have to download both apps if they do not want both.

In answer to your other question, I like uninstalling but it is not necessary.

Quoting PAIN-KILLER,
WB8 is only $9.99
But it only works on two OSes. It appears that $19.99 as a pricepoint is gone, replaced with $9.99 to $4.99 

I'd like to ask, that with most if not all ODNT apps selling for 1/2 to 1/4 the previous stand alone cost, will there be a price reduction in order for ODNT, both new and renewal? Currently, it is almost certainly cheaper to just buy what you need or can use with your OS than to purchase the package deal.

Is WindowBlinds 8.0 still compatible for Windows Vista? I'm still using Vista and I'm quite happy with it and have no plans to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 anytime soon. But I was just wondering if I can still use this new version of WindowBlinds?
