What happens when the subscription ends?

A valid subscription is required to use Advanced Installer. If you choose not to renew your subscription you will not be able to use Advanced Installer going forward.

The setup packages generated while the subscription was active can be installed after the subscription expires.

What happens when payment fails?

Multiple email notifications will be sent to you with the status of your subscription and its renewal. If a payment fails your subscription will enter a grace period of 30 days, during which you can continue using Advanced Installer and solve any payment related issues.

What is the difference between subscription and named (per-user) license?

A subscription grants you a time limited license for using the latest version of Advanced Installer, at a better price and with additional benefits, like priority support. A per-user perpetual license, has an initial higher cost per-user, but it allows you to use an older version of Advanced Installer forever.
