Hi.

I have a current OD subscription, exp. in a month. I use only fences and consider not to renew my sub. Last year support told me to backup my installers and keys and I would be fine. Now I can't find a key for each program, just a central key for the OD sub. When I install a software I get asked for my emailaddress connected to the OD sub. My question is what happens if my OD stops. Will I be able to install and activate the software with the installer, or is the software now depending on an active subscription?

Are you aware that if you re_new OD while you still have an active subscription the price is only $29.99. 

I realize this doesn't answer your question and hopefully someone will. You can always send a ticket to stardock support.

That is all you need. the single key works for all software included in your ODNT sub.

Will I be able to install and activate the software with the installer
Yes. Your software can be activated with your key without an active subscription.

Quoting fredriktessem,

Yes. Also if there are any new programs included with a OD sub you would also get those. 

With Win 10 on the way and the price of OD right now, may be a good idea to keep if for another year. Don't forget there is now a new subscription that you can get that is a pay per month.

Actually, there are two ways to subscribe, now.

1. The yearly subscription, one payment of $29.99 and

2. Object Desktop Infinite. That plan sells for $9.99 to start and then $3.99 per month thereafter. You, as a return subscriber might not have to pay the initial $9.99. Since I'm just another member, I'd verify that with Stardock sales. Clearly, the $29.99 choice would be the lesser sum. You can read more about that here: http://forums.wincustomize.com/458719/page/1/#replies

As for updates, being current in either plan would assure you of all the updates, whereas allowing your subscription to lapse would exclude you from updates, but not the use of the apps. As Wizard1956 pointed out, "Your software can be activated with your key without an active subscription.", but you should download the latest version of your installer before your subscription lapses (if you decide to go that way), save them and back them up, but realize that Stardock is free to change that policy at any time without warning.

If you subscribe to Object Desktop Infinite and let the subscription lapse, the apps cannot be used from archives.
