Yes, unless you're using a trial version. Also, after one year, you won't receive updates unless you renew, so if MS makes changes in its OS, Object Desktop may well become less functional.
Make sure you download the latest installers before your subscription runs out, and back them up.
Hello. I am somewhat confused by this. The post in https://forums.stardock.com/486310/object-desktop-support-faq#objectdesktop says the following:
If my Object Desktop subscription should lapse, will the products included in it continue to function?
For the ‘Classic’ Object Desktop product, if the subscription lapses, the included software will continue to function at the versions that were available when the subscription lapsed. Any Object Desktop Subscription purchase after May 2023 will see the software cease to function if the subscription is allowed to lapse.
So what am I missing? What exactly happens if the subscription purchased after May 2023 is allowed to expire, other than no more updates/supports? If there are no differences, then what exactly changed between Object Desktop purchased before May 2023 and after that? Clarification would be very much appreciated.
