I cant for the life of me get Daz staff to support my efforts to go pro!
The replys I get (support ticket system and emails) keep pointing me to the BETA version of Carrara 8.5 (which is due to end in a few days and there is NO guarentee that they will give out another Beta serial!)...All I want to do is give Daz my money and upgrade from standard to pro, is that too much to ask???
Here is a copy of my last request.. Did I not make myself CLEAR?
Upgrading Carrara 8 standard to pro
May 29 13:29
I see that Carrara 8 pro is $549.95, and my current paid version of Carrara 8 (126.96.36.199 -32bit) is $149.95.
Having paid for Carrara 8 standard (188.8.131.52 32bit), How much would it cost to upgrade to C184.108.40.206 64bit PRO? (Surely not $549.95!, thats a full version price not an upgrade price right?) lol.
Is there a release date for Carrara 8.5 Pro 64bit (as i know this is still in Beta stage) or would it be better to upgrade from standard to pro AFTER the Beta becomes a stable release (to save having to pay out for another upgrade to get 8.5 pro advantages)?
I do not see an option to upgrade from standard to pro in the store! You can only buy standard OR buy pro, not upgrade to pro from standard!
Thank you, warmest regards.
The 8.5 is currently available to Carrara 8 owners. You simply need to reset your downloads for Carrara 8. You can do so by clicking the ‘reset’ link next to your order number.
You will need the current serial number for 8.5 listed here for you,

Sorry Britney, This is not the information I require!
Your reply is for the 8.5 BETA…This Beta version is changing constantly (a side effect of Beta testing stages) I am looking for a (STABLE) upgrade from Carrara 8 (220.127.116.11 -32bit) to Carrara 8 PRO 1.1.12 -64bit.
I am desperately trying to GIVE Daz3D my money here But can not for the life of me get a straight reply that contains the correct information either here or in the forum!
It really IS quite simple!
UNTIL the release date of a stable 8.5, There should be a version of Carrara 8 PRO 1.1.12 -64bit available in the store, there is NOT!
The only store options are as follows:
Carrara 8 upgrade (to upgrade from C6-7 to 8) at $89.95
Carrara 8 pro (full product, NOT upgrade from standard to pro) at $549.95
Where is the UPGRADE from Carrara 8 (standard) to PRO (64bit) option?
The 8.5 version is advertised online but clicking on the advertisement takes you to the store where it is currently NOT available (due to still being in a beta phase)...
I am using the 8.5 Beta BUT this beta testing session is due to end in a few days and there is NO guarantee that another Beta testers serial code will be released! Should Daz decide not to release another Beta serial then I am stuck using my standard version with out PRO features, This is why I wish to buy the PRO version that should be a current stable version as there is no definite release date for the current 8.5.
Besides, I don’t want to pay the price of a full version pro program when I should simply be able to pay the upgrade difference between standard and pro! Right?

So, ANYONE know how I can go pro until the 8.5 beta becomes a stable release?
(with out having to worry that my beta serial will run out and if I will or wont get another one issued!)
As I would love to go 64bit and keep pro features perminantly (wether I upgrade to 8.5 or not, I still want to use / have perminant access to a pro version )?
