We've hit the same problem. I went to install the latest update, and got told our license was no longer valid. We have several new smartboards, so have started using up the serial numbers to license the software, but the update tool suggests we'll only get a year of software updates as well before that runs out. A big change from our previous site license key that just worked. Also, we're only getting 3 or so licenses per serial number before we're told they are used up. Another change.
The frustration for us is that (a) we've been using SMARTTech throughout, so it would be extremely costly to switch to an alternative and (b) surely the hardware is the big cost here anyway, which we've already paid for. The software is just a nice-to-have, and hardly feature rich.
If anyone from SMARTTech is listening, this is a great way to upset your customers.
Although surely interactive whiteboards are there main business, and people will be changing them on an ongoing basis. Unless as mentioned the interactive whiteboard market has become that poor an earner? Surely upsetting your customers in a dwindling market is not the way forward! Do they really think the software is going to be that big an earner? Short-sighted to say the least.
Having dealt with rubbish IWB software I can say that decent stuff that you can standardise on is worth some money. We have gone with Mimio which for the moment is free. This is the exact time where that OSS IWB software would be able to gain traction if anyone could remember what it was called.
I will be sticking with 11 for now then ;)
