Purchased license expiration??????

According to the IntelliJ.com web site "Your license allows you to run the version of IntelliJ IDEA you purchased without a time limitation." so why, when I start build 1117 and enter my license info, does Idea tell me that my license will expire on 1 March 2004???

Oops, it just dawned on me that the message probably came up because my license is for 3.x and I'll need a new one for 4.x if I want to keep on using it (which I do).

I think you're exactly right. If you bought your 3.x license before a certain deadline you have to buy an upgrade for 4.x. Don't know when this deadline is, last time it was about a year before the 3.x release.

If you purchased 3.0 after October 15th, 2003, you will get a free upgrade
... if you bought it before that time, you will need to purchase an upgrade
license.

Thanks for clarification. Do you also know when it will be possible to buy an upgrade license? 1st of March is approaching quickly...

I'd say once they release 4.0 (last ETA for 4.0 was mid-February).

HTH,
Andrei

Any idea (no pun intended) how much an upgrade license will cost?
