So if I purchase CC do I have to pay for it monthly for updates or do I pay for it monthly even to access the programs. I only want the Programs I do not need the updates, I want to pay for the upgrades as I want them I don't want to continue to pay for them. This is why I preferred to buy the programs outright. Is there a comparable solution to this issue, I have, P.S. I understand why this option is not famous these day, because of pirating, but is there a better solution?
Updates are a part of cc, you would be paying monthly or yearly to access and use the programs.
