Yep, I'm in the same situation. I think it tells me I have 19
days left. I really do want to keep working on this. Will Adobe
consider either extending the beta by providing a temporary license
key or perhaps selling Flex Builder 3 (permanent) licenses on a
This is also important for me! It does not accept my Flex 2.0
serial number, so I cannot extend the 10 days I have left. I have
assumed there will be a beta 3, but Adobe is leaving it close to
I have the same problem.
We just started our project RIA development from Flex Builder
3 beta 2 and we don't have Flex Builder 2 license. We don't want to
buy a license for Flex Builder 2 and then buy another license for
Flex Builder 3.
The idea of a beta product that have expiration date is very
odd. Any beta product that I encountered up until now only expired
after the final release was out.
I'm on the Adobe store right now trying to purchase Flex
Builder 2 + Maintenance. I've found FB2 (thanks for the price drop)
but I can't find the $99 maintenance offering anywhere. Can you
give us a link or something?
Major apologies, I have found out that our online store won't
offer maintenance for now. That said, the upgrade price to FB3 is
going to be very very very very very similar to the maintenance
costs, so if you can't purchase maintenance now you don't have
reason to be concerned. If you have business reasons that you want
to purchase maintenance right now, you should be able to do so
through one of our resellers.
We couldn't be happier with flex. What an amazing
environment. We are in the same situation, and I've been setting my
clock back when working on it for the time being. It's just a hold
over until flex 3 comes out. I'm having a hard time convincing my
boss to buy version 2 when 3 is coming out next year. Even with the
upgrade/maintenance option, he won't budge
Just an FYI since this detail may be misleading to many...
Isn't the upgrade/maintenance cost for Flex 3 + Charting aka
"Professional" $299? ($99 is for standard)
(Or has this changed?)
Q: If I purchase Flex Builder 2, am I eligible for an upgrade
to Flex Builder 3?
A: To be eligible for a free of charge upgrade to Flex 3, you
will need to purchase maintenance along with the purchase of Flex
Builder. Effective November 1, 2007, you can purchase maintenance
with Flex Builder 2 for $99 US which makes you eligible for a
free-of-charge copy of Flex Builder 3 Standard edition when it
ships. Also effective November 1, 2007, you can purchase
maintenance with Flex Builder 2 with Charting for $299 US and
become eligible for a free-of-charge copy of Flex Builder 3
Professional edition when it ships.
