How to Upgrade from Episode 5 to Episode 6

To upgrade Episode Engine 5, contact Deb Newhouse.

Customers with version 5.x and earlier: The upgrade fee from Episode V5 to Episode V6 is $244, and from Episode Pro V5 to Episode Pro V6 is $494 (Price includes 1st year of Premium Support). In order to get the upgrade price, you must have an activated version of Episode v5.x (or previous version) on your computer. Without this, our system will treat this as a new software purchase and you will be charged the full price.

If this occurs, please Contact Desktop Sales by submitting the online form, providing your version 5 serial number and a comment stating that you are not able to upgrade Episode 5 within the application at the special pricing. One of our Desktop Sales team members will assist you.

Customers with a 6.x license: Versions of 6.x are FREE updates and will not require a purchase.
