Two versions of VSP 2018?

Two versions of VSP 2018?

Postby Corel user » Tue Jan 22, 2019 5:47 pm

Hello, Trevor
A knotty question I can't seem to get answered on the internet: There are different UPC's , selling prices, and appearance of packaging of the Ultimate 2018( " live life, make movies and acronyms for various languages', or just the Ultimate 2018 I.D.) Are these offerings different versions? Saving money sometimes is a mistake.

Hi Mike

Not sure I fully understand
Your profile to the right shows you working with X8, I assume that to be X8 and not 2018
You should be seeing popups with a discount price of 70% as a guess
If you do not see those, go to Help Messages
Yes that is legitimate and you will get the full Ultimate version of 2018
Certainly worth the price, I see X7 at 75% -- $24.99, not sure why dollars when I use £

Historically the next version would be due for release in February, if you are patient then you may / should receive a similar offer.
Of course I cannot know if Corel will offer the same discounts, but have done so over the last 2 years?

Purchase through the program is not a mistake and will give you the fill version
Personally I would wait, then run the trial of the next version to test before purchasing.

Then again the discount is quite attractive.
Regards Trevor

I tried to upload screen shots of the packaging to illustrate my point and question ,but the forum popup said the file size is too large! Basically the printing on the packaging varies in appearance along with the Ebay prices!
Ta,Ta!

Hi
OK there are two versions of the program a Pro and an Ultimate
The basic installations are practically the same, you will struggle to find any difference
The Ultimate version comes with additional addons / filters and Templates, (Bonus Features Package) installing that effectively updates the Pro to Ultimate.
The offers showing through the program are for the ultimate.

If you are thinking of purchasing the options through the program I would think are a better choice.

This web page compares the Pro to Ultimate

As I say purchasing through the program does deliver the full Ultimate version

There are two versions - but who knows what you will get on e-bay - really not the best place to buy software
