Still No Upgrade to Deluxe Suite

Question

According to the news release on Roxio's web site: "A software-only upgrade [to Deluxe Suite] for Roxio registered customers will be available via online download in April for $19.95."

 

Can anyone can supply a link to this upgrade?

 

And when the news releases refers to "software-only", does that mean the Dazzle DVC90 Video Capture Device is not included?

If you can't find the link, it probably does not exist yet. I would think that "software only" means just that. I don't see it as an ambiguous statement. The Dazzle capture device is hardware. Damned tough to download. :)

Well then...seeing as it's the middle of April and no upgrade as promised...and $30 for the extra software features only is no bargain, anyway...and with the bitter taste of Roxio's last upgrade offer [7 to 7.5] still in my mouth...I think I'll take a pass on this 'upgrade'.

 

I'm happy enough with EMC 8 Suite -- Roxio's best, in my opinion -- so I can wait for Deluxe Suite to be discounted at the big boxes.

If that works for you, go for it.

According to my calender it's April 17 so Roxio still has 13 days to go.

Actually, you should not have considered all of the reply that you got as being lame, unless you read it incorrectly. Have you called the 1-800 number that they gave you for Inside Sales?

Give 'em a call:

 

You: "When's that upgrade from EMC8 to EMC8 Deluxe going to be available?"

 

Roxio: "It's available now sir."

OR

Roxio: "Sorry sir, that upgrade won't be available until X."

 

Inside sales is great. I use them for company stuff all the time and occasionally can get answers to what are really tech support questions.

This is exactly what I need (the EMC 8 is limited in audio track fading control--in videowave).

 

I just called and the release for this has been delayed for some reason. However, they told me that they're shooting for Early May. So check your emails carefully next week.

Update to this post: here looks like a low, low price of $20 (not confirmed).

Already the 3rd week of May but still haven't heard anything about the software-only upgrade. :)

Hopefully, one of the Roxio reps will peruse this thread and offer some information on when it will be available.

Why would they announce this upgrade offer if they were not ready to release it?? Every time I have called customer service/sales regarding this I have been told something different each time :)

 

Looks like I have to load up the 7.5 so I can complete my project---as 8 will not do.

There were some complications with the release that caused an unexpected delay. I know its not the answer you wanted to hear, but I thought letting you know where we stand was the best option for now.

 

This is the the catch 22 problem with release dates. If you give an open ended date, the customers get mad. If you give a specific date and then have to change it (it almost always happens) then customers get mad.

 

P.S. Thanks for your patience with this matter. We'll get through this together.

Thanks for the update. I think this is the main point. It's not really a problem that the upgrade hasn't come out yet as much as it is that we hadn't seen any communication on what was going on. So again, thanks for updating us!!! It is much appreciated. Just my 2 cents anyway. So... when.... Just kidding :)

Any new news yet on the upgrade offer?

 

I just may go and purchase the EMC8 Deluxe so I don't have to uninstall 8 and reinstall 7.5

 

Just thought I'd ask.....just in case tomorrow is the lucky day that the upgrade will be available :)
