    BCC 9 little vs. BCC 8.2 full

    Hello everyone,
    I bought MC support for the next year and Symphony Option. In my account menu BCC9 little. I have a full version of BCC8.2. I can not find information about the difference in the versions.
    What filters will / will not be available?
    Can the version be installed together?

    V.

    P.S. I'm sorry it's in MC PC Forum, I had the impression that I'm writing it to Complete Your Suite. Please administrator to move to the correct forum. Thank you.

    You get 4 filters with the "lite" pack:

    Compared with the however many hundred you've got with BCC 8, I'd stick with BCC 8.

    Vilem:

    I don't think so, and anyway there isn't much point as the lite pack doesn't include anything amazing you don't already have.

    Re: BCC 9 little vs. BCC 8.2 full

    I just rebuilt me system (edit 1 in specs), and when I came to re-install BCC8.2 (which I use occasionally) I can no longer activate it because it is 'old'; so it is running in trial mode.

    Boris support want $100 to send me an unlock code.

    Just be aware.

    That's disgraceful. Boris won't help you activate software that you paid for because it is "too old", but somehow they're able to do it if you pay them a fee? 

    I would try to speak with someone higher up. Unless the user agreement stipulates that access to your unlock code has an expiration date, you should be well within your rights to be able to re-activate the software for free.

    That's very strange, I changed my PC sometime in October 2017, and activation went smoothly.

    This is the email from Boris support:-

    Hello,

    Earlier this year we standardized our upgrade and support policy. Unfortunately, any license on version 8 or below is no longer supported. You can either pay a 1-time support incident charge of $100.00 to reactivate your license or upgrade your support contract.

    Thanks,

    Re: BCC 9 little vs. BCC 8.2 full

    Maybe not neccesary anymore, but the two versions cannot be installed together.

    I mailed Boris FX about this in 2014, and they wrote the following to me: "Unfortunately there is no way to install both AVX lite and another BCC product successfully".

    Yes, I have installed the latest DX driver.
