    If you've bought it, then go ahead and install the beta...closer to the 21st there should be a new serial for the beta (maybe even a new beta release...). That's the way it's been for quite a while now.

    HI bullit35744 :)

    The Serial number in your (My Account) for Carrara 8. will not expire or change.

    The serial number for the "Beta" version of Carrara 8.5 ..Will expire,. and is designed to do so when the next beta release is expected to be made available.

    Alternatively, a new "beta" serial number can be used to extend the testing period for the existing beta version,.. if a new beta release isn't quite ready at that time.

    Hope it helps :)

    If you have purchased C8 in the past just go to your order history and reset it, this should bring up the C8.5 beta. Note, to use genesis in the beta you will have to install studio/genesis.

    Thank you. I have Studio/Genesis installed. One more question. If I reset the history will it still keep track of what I have already ordered?

    he means to reset the download. It does not effect your purchase history.

    But it will be a LOT of downloads, so they have the downloads expire after a few days so they are easier to manage.
