Looking to Buy X5 (32 bit) for Windows XP

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a license for X5 (32 bit) available?

Am using an old machine with Windows XP (32 bit) and would like to install X5 Premier on it.

Thanks for checking.

you can also check Ebay

 

create a search and save it and you will get an email each time a sale starts

 

to determine if it is a good price look at CA's upgrade cost and add that in then knock off about 20% to make it a deal

otherwise it would be "better" to buy a new license for the latest version

 

also add in $50 cost to transfer the license - transfer could be $400+ if the license is for a secondary seat or student etc

 

whether you buy from here or Ebay the seller must be willing to work with you to transfer the license

or you won't be able to use it

Thanks, Lew:

 

That's a good idea about eBay. Just created a search.

 

I would actually pay double that.

 

Thanks for the advice about a seller being willing to transfer a license.

 

Got a similar answer from sales.

 

Sincere regards.

There is someone selling X7 in the Offerings Forum , it has a 32bit version , however I don't think it officially supports XP ? but you could confirm that with Sales.

 

Something you could also ask perhaps would be if the Previous Owner of X7 upgraded from X5>X6>X7 if the transfer of license also allows you to Run the previous Owners other Versions too or only X7.

upgraded from X5>X6>X7

 

If you sell a license you are suppose to give all of the old versions along with the newest

or destroy them

NO-only destroy/uninstall them, old versions can't be transferred.

From transfer agreement-

Quote

(g) If the Software being transferred is an Upgrade, you must cease using all prior versions of the Software, Documentation, and Graphical Files as well. You must uninstall all versions of the software and you may not use or retain any copy of any prior version of the Software;

(h) You may not transfer any earlier versions of Software which have been upgraded;

Bummer, I've never seen a transfer form , that means an x7 license is no good even if the Owner did have X5 or X6 too.

 

Might want to Post your request in the Seeking Forum too SeekingX5.

I would check with CA sales

 

I think that means you can't transfer old versions while keeping the newest

 

If you sell the newest then it "should" include all the old ones too 

it is one continuous license that covers all versions you own

 

BUT, I could be wrong ...

Thanks, Lew, for the feedback.

 

Only the sales department would have a definitive answer.

 

Not sure sometimes how to interpret specific contract clauses.

 

Found Home Designer Suite 2014 at amazon.com for $99 in the meantime.

 

Maintenance and security are not concerns,

 

because I'm using it offline inside VirtualBox with Lubuntu as a host.

 

That'll be fine for personal and educational purposes.

 

Intend to let ya'll know when I get a definitive answer.

 

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
