NEW: Master License -- $69.98

Upgrade Help

------ Instructions below are no longer valid -- please use the Upgrade Help link just above -------

Note: If you're having trouble purchasing at the discounted price, please download from the download page, install, restore your license if needed, and purchase from the Help menu of the program.  Thanks.

JRiver Master License & Introductory Price

When we introduced the Mac and Linux versions of JRiver Media Center, we found that customers wanted a license that would work with all versions.  Unfortunately, our licensing system couldn't do this.

We have some good news.  You can now buy a Master License that works with all three operating systems.  

It is available at a very special price -- $69.98 (regular price $79.98).

You can also upgrade to the master license for $24.98 through March 1 (regular price $29.98) from any MC20 license.

If you already own MC20 for any two of the operating systems, and they use the same e-mail address, we will send you a Master License free of charge by about February 4.  You don't need to contact us for this.

Please visit our [url=http://www.jriver.com/purchase.html][url=http://www.jriver.com/purchase.html][url=http://www.jriver.com/purchase.html]Purchase Page[/url][/url][/url] for more details on how the new licensing works, and how you can verify your existing licensing.

----------

Please Note:  New versions are required in order to use this license.  They are on the Download Page.

Upgrade prices are available now if you have the latest build installed:

If you don't see the correct price, please don't complete the transaction.

Note: If you're having trouble purchasing at the discounted price, please download from the download page, install, restore your license if needed, and purchase from the Help menu of the program.  Thanks.

I would assume that the upgrade to a "master" license does not invalidate previous licenses.
At least I hope not, because I don't intend on purchasing MC21 for Mac. I just don't use it nearly enough to justify the upgrade price.

I have a licence for Mac and for windows for MC 20. Does this mean the master licence will be sent to me? Or do I have to get in contact
with someone to get it?

It has no effect on other licenses.

You'll still be able to upgrade single licenses.  You will also be able to upgrade the Master License.

This is great news! Thanks for offering this new license type. I'll finally be able to use MC on my work Macbook.

Is there a special link for purchasing a Master license upgrade when you have a regular Windows license? When I tried to check out it showed me the full price ($44.98), even though I used the same email address.

I assume from the last line in the original post it's not quite implemented yet.  Sometime today by the looks of things.

If you've already purchased MC20 for any OS, you can upgrade to the master license for $24.98.


Upgrades to a Master License aren't yet available.  Hopefully later today.  They will be $19.98 until January 31, then $24.98.

Jim,

Sorry for being dense but is the upgrade going to be 19.98 or 24.98 if you already have a MC20 license for one of the OS?

Just to be clear, if someone already has multiple licences then at some point in the near future, they will just receive an updated licence via email without having had to do anything. Right?

Yes, if the licenses are for MC20.

I recently purchased MC20 for Windows and would also like to use MC on my Mac. Now I wanted to buy the master license for the reduced price of $19.98. But unfortunately only the price of $44.98 is shown at the end of the transaction process. Is there anything wrong or do I make a mistake here?

I downloaded .59 on my Windows PC, but under Registration Info it shows I have a "(registered Master license)". I'd love to think that I do, but I know I haven't purchased it yet!

I downloaded .59 on my Mac and tried my MC20 for Windows key, which confirmed that it's not actually a Master license and redirected me to the Purchase page for MC20 for Mac.

How can I purchase the upgrade?

When can we expect the mail for the master license when we have purchased v20 on more than 1 platform?

I think both my licenses are on the same email address but I have had an issue once so I want to make sure I don't miss it.

Thanks!

I installed the MC20 .59 on my mac (as by link posted herein above) and then purchased a master license, well, when i run the license file on my mac it doesn't work, under the registration info i can see "not registered".
I tried the same master license file on MC20 .59 windows version and it works.
Is there any issue related to the license installing on mac platform ?

Thanks for the purchase.  Did you purchase it from within MC20?  Is it possible you're running an older version?

I have installed on windows, but on the purchase page, I don't see the option to choose a master license...

This doesn't work from Linux either...

What do you advise?

I probably need to add as well that this is a fresh install of v20 on the windows box...

My registered v20 install is ruuning on Linux...

Hi,
I tried to upgrade to a master license since yesterday evening.  I am running a registered 20.0.59 Windows version on Win8.1Pro.

No matter what I do (MC web internal or external Chrome or IE web purchase page), I just cannot get to the master license upgrade price.
And the help menu does not show what jtwrace posted, no sign of the "Upgrade to master licence" menu line...

If it helps, when I click on Help/Registration info, it tells me that I have a 20.0.59 (registered master license).  Odd...

Hopefully the upcoming email will have a working web link where we can enter our actual (Windows only) registration code to purchase a master licence.

just helped anotheruser  in forum regarding registration/install keys - http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=94992.msg654229#msg654229

and i thought of another question...

right now we just own a license for version 20 windows which = 10 restores each year (or use to)

If i buy the Master licenses, does that increase restores as well?
Windows = 10
Linux = 10
Mac = 10

or would the restores be as follows?
Windows, Linux, Mac = 10

thanks

I have just installed the .61 build on windows and still not able to purchase the master license upgrade...

I am suspecting this is because I do not have a registered windows v20 installed...

The purchase a master license goes straight to $44.98 and doesn't allow the option to choose for an upgrade...

I have a registered v20 on Linux, but since this is license upgrade is not working on Linux, is it correct to assume that only those who have a registered v20 running on windows or mac are allowed to purchase the master key update?

Thanks

Restore the MC20 for Windows license.  Then you should see the upgrade price.

FYI - Running V61, could see and buy the Master Licence Upgrade at the correct price (via PayPal), download the MJR just fine but when I "run" the MJR, MC does not do anything (you normally get a Diagloge Box) and the Registration Information still says it is a Windows Licence.

I think it's failing to install a new license if you already have one.  John is looking at it.

FYI as well...I received the license file/key. tried multiple times on windows 7 to install it, it says it was successfully installed. upon closing jriver and reopening (using force close) When going back to help it still asks me to Upgrade to Master, and still states it's registered to me via a windows license. (tried multiple PC's they all give same results.)

Restore the MC20 for Windows license.  Then you should see the upgrade price.

I don't have the MC20 for Windows license... But I do have the MC20 for Linux license...

How do I get to purchase the master license?

Just to confirm that I have installed the .61 version in Linux, and the "upgrade to master key" option is available under help...
When I select the option to purchase from Linux, nothing happened... I was not redirected to the page to purchase... instead of that, I got two new emails... each one with a new temp key for Linux, and a decrease in number of restores remaining... 

Thanks,

Me too.  I bought the Master license through MC20, the .61 build.  Successfully installed, still saying (registered Windows license) and still got the Upgrade to Master License... showing in Help.

FYI as well...I received the license file/key. tried multiple times on windows 7 to install it, it says it was successfully installed. upon closing jriver and reopening (using force close) When going back to help it still asks me to Upgrade to Master, and still states it's registered to me via a windows license. (tried multiple PC's they all give same results.)

FWIW, confirmed same issue here on 2 windows 7 machines, running 20.0.61 with the upgraded master license.
