@Neil Banfield and @BradSams
Thank you both for your updates to this thread. Some of us were still quite confused on the changes that began June 1 prior to both of you posting here.
Also, huge shoutout to @sdRohan whose efforts to update the documentation recently and further explain the changes are sincerely appreciated.
For anyone still confused, I highly recommend reading BradSams's posts in this thread, and reading the documentation:
In summary, if you are a current Classic Subscription user, you essentially retain the terms of the original "Object Desktop Classic" that existed prior to June 1, including that applications under Object Desktop will continue to function forever and can be reinstalled, activated, and deactivated provided you download the installers during an active subscription period. If the Classic Subscription lapses, you cannot download any updates, just as before.
The major change will be that if you decide to renew or extend your Classic Subscription, your existing subscription will be setup on automatic renewal. You have the right to cancel the automatic renewal at any time, with the same caveats regarding future functionality, as spelled out in the previous paragraph.
All other changes affect NEW Object Desktop subscriptions on or after June 1, 2023, which does not include renewals or extensions of Classic Subscriptions.
