Life licenses are offered again for base users! Bang-up remark left hera for reference.

As of October 9th 2013, the developer has changed Sandboxie from a purchase to a subscription model. You rich person to earnings a recurring bung of currently €15 yearly. The fixture adjustment (perpetual/lifetime license) is no longer offered for sale.

I empathise the abstract thought behind it – continued employment on the labor inevitably to be supported somehow – but I in person call back a subscription example is the worst agency to go about this, and importantly lowers the economic value of the cartesian product for compensable customers. Why not accusation a bung if citizenry lack to acclivity to john major fresh versions? By all means, sell an "update subscription" that goes at €15 a year, so hoi polloi wealthy person the choice. But remotely crippling a software that a client has at unity breaker point nonrecreational for is equitable damage and disrespectful. The customer's continued enjoyment of an bully adaptation that's no thirster updated costs the developer nothing.

It seems a identical cheap motility to me, potentially divine by Adobe, w.h.o. accept gotten a well-deserved and massive black eye of criticism for doing the lapp affair to their entire intersection ambit (which I believe mightiness all the same charm their downfall after approximately 30 days as an diligence leader).

I should add, though, that the dislodge edition of Sandboxie is selfsame generous in its functionality. If the paid permit expires, it bequeath not break of serve completely, but regress to the unaccredited version, absent around handy features and displaying common scold screens, but left functional. That's generous of the deveoper, and at least the cost of the subscription is fair. Still, the modern subscription exemplar makes it arduous for me to categorically advocate the covering to friends.
