Notes on Renewing

  • Once you have purchased Enterprise Architect, if your subscription lapses, you can reinstate it at any time just by paying the renewal fee for the license type you hold. This will entitle you to download the latest version of Enterprise Architect.
  • Renewal will only cover the number and type of licenses originally purchased. Any additional licenses must be purchased at the standard price for the edition required.
  • If you choose not to renew, you can continue to use your current version of Enterprise Architect, you just won't be able to update it unless you renew.
  • If you choose not to renew, you will lose access to the downloadable version of Enterprise Architect from the Sparx website. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you make a back up copy of the Enterprise Architect installation file to a permanent medium such as CD ROM, so that you can reinstall it at any time in the future.
