After discussing with several licensing resellers and the Adobe licensing support itself I'm even more confused than before, you guys at Adobe definately don't make it easy upgrading or even buying an education version of FB4 Premium
What I currently have
- Flex Builder 2 Pro. edu license
- Free Flex Builder 3 Pro edu license from freeriatools.adobe.com
- Extended FB 4 Premium Beta 2 Key
What I would like to have
- Flash Builder 4 Premium education
Education Volume Licensing Reseller
Ok, our education volume licensing reseller was completely confused about the name change, however they offer three products:
- FB4 Premium Upgrade from CF-Builder
- FB4 Premium from Flex Builder 2 / 3 Professional ( unbelievable cheap price of USD 40.- )
- FB4 Premium from FB4 Standard
However I have never heard of an upgrade option from Flex Builder 2 to Flash Builder 4 Premium and they were not able telling me if the freeriatools-key will work for an upgrade.
Also they were not able telling me if I can get the Free FB4 Standard for education version and then upgrade to FB4 Premium education and there don't seems to be an option buying the FB4 Premium edition directly, they just offer upgrade versions.
So they told me I will have to give the Adobe licensing center a call.

Again, first of all a confusion about the name-change. However after several internal discussions I had to pass them my Flex Builder 3 key and they told me it should be possible upgrading to FB 4 Premium using this key....should..so they redirected me to the Adobe direct-selling hotline.
Adobe Direct-Selling Hotline
"Flash Professional?"...no Flash Builder 4 Premium from Flex Builder 3 Professional but using a freeriatools key.
..."we only have a business version, would you like to buy this one?" No thanks, I would like to buy the Flash Builder 4 Premium education version.
"ah ok, then please contact your educational volume licensing partner". ...But they told me to contact you because they don't have such an option, just upgrades.
.."sorry we can't help you in this case" mkey thanks.
..as they have no idea what Flash Builder 4 is as it seems, I decided to ask within this forums, maybe someone else already upgraded his/her FB3 edu pro version to FB4 Premium....or at least I hope so
Is it possible upgrading my Flex 3 edu pro (freeria) or Flex 2 pro license to FB4 Premium?
Is it possible getting the Flash Builder 4 Standard edu from freeriatools for free and then upgrading it to FB4 edu Premium through our local volume licensing partner?
Thanks in advance for your answers
