I have older versions of software which I have upgraded on line. If i sell the old versions and do the licence transfer will the new owner have access to the upgraded versions.
Unless I am mistaken, you cannot legally transfer the license of an older version once it has been used for an upgrade.
If i sell the old versions and do the licence transfer will the new owner have access to the upgraded versions.
You cannot sell old versions and keep the latest version.
Upgrades merely extend your existing license. e.g. if you bought Photoshop, CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS6 then you still have one software license so you cannot sell earlier versions and keep CS6. You'd be selling one license (because you only have one license to sell) which includes CS3 through to CS6 inclusive.
If you want to sell your software, you must sell it all from the first full version including all updates through to the latest version you own. That'll leave you with no software.
I probably haven't put the question right. I bought Elements 8 and over time updated the to Elements 11, all done as download upgrades. The same applies with LR. I bought 3 and upgraded to 4. I have just bought a new camera and it has come with LR5 and Elements 11 software free. If I install and register the new software I have just been given the I will have older versions that will be of no use to me. I have thought about selling them to other members of my photo group as starter editing software,which goes back to my question. If I sell and transfer the licence to whoever buys it then will they only have access to PE8 and LR3 or will they be able to access the upgrades bought when I was using them. Hope that is a bit clearer.
As far as I know, any Photoshop Elements "upgrade" is not really an upgrade which requires a previous serial number to install... you only received an "upgrade" price for a short time when the newer version is released
Any program which requires a previous serial number to install is a "true" upgrade, and the link John Waller provided applies... you may not sell it
So... were you required to enter a previous serial number when you installed your "upgrade" version?
I don't think I was but to be honest I can't really remember. I think I paid for the newer version it was downloaded and installed. Was just advertised as a upgrade on the Adobe site.
