A lot of first time users of the TransferRIP software may not be aware of the FREE 6 month Update Plan which comes with new purchases of the software. Some of you may be asking, what is the update plan code – well, the update plan code not only activates the software, but also allows you to update the TransferRIP software to the newest version, with all the new tool, features, bug fixes and more.
We recommend that all users check for updates at least once a month. Unless you have registered to receive our newsletter, you will not hear about the latest updates to the TransferRIP software. So checking for updates on a regular basis is a good routine to get into.
This brings us nicely onto the reason for this tutorial – a lot of users have never checked for updates. Once the Update Plan expires, users will no longer be able to update the TransferRIP software to the latest version. If your update plan has expired, you can continue to use the TransferRIP software without purchasing a new update plan.
To purchase a new update plan, please contact us.
