We offer optional support contracts in combination with a new product license, or to renew an existing support contract. An active support contract includes technical support with short response times, all minor (maintenance) and major (functional) updates and other advantages (see support description).

The support fee is 20% of the license fee per year.


A major update changes an older license to a license for a newer major version on the same platform. Licenses for PDFlib 7 and 8 products can be updated to PDFlib 9.3 at a reduced license fee. An update invalidates the previous license. A valid license key must be supplied with each update order.

Customers without a support contract can add support with a major update. In this case the support fee is calculated as 20% of the list price of the target product (not 20% of the update fee).

A minor update changes a 9.x license to a license for a newer maintenance release (minor version) on the same platform. The fee for minor updates is 20% of the list price of the target product.

Upgrades to a higher Product

An upgrade changes an existing license for a PDFlib 9.x product to a license for a more advanced product on the same platform and with the same version number, thereby invalidating the old license.  A valid license key must be supplied with each upgrade order.

If the previous license has been purchased without support, the customer can add support when upgrading to a higher product level. In this case the support fee is calculated as 20% of the list price of the target product (not 20% of the upgrade fee).

The following table indicates the fees for various upgrade combinations as a percentage of the target product’s list price:

PDFlib+PDI 9.3 50% -
