I want to develop using the version I already have without having to renew.
I hate to be held hostage as a developer if I can't afford to renew right away.
It would benefit me to renew... with lower costs to renew but I can't always afford it.
Currently, if the subscription runs out your stuck with nothing to develop with. Not even the current version you paid for.
Every time I talk to a developer to help me they always baulk at the price of the controls. They insist they can do better, So Far I have spent over $3,000 and the controls I have are pretty good, but I have to keep upgrading them. I am thinking about releasing them as open source. The main idea is that I don't want to strapped down to paying a subscription. If I miss a subscription I am out of business on the current model.
I went from .NET to QT and I really miss the system that DEVExpress had for .NET controls, I renewed 4 of the 6 years I used them.

David, you can use the product after the license expires without any restrictions. The only problem you will have to correct possible bugs on your own. But even in this case you can write to us and maybe we can help something.
