    Version 8 I do not think will be updated to work with new movies as fast as V9 is , I dont even know if its Windows 10 compatible. V8 is old, V 9 is new, get V9 , why stay with old software?

    I got a idea to smooth over this why not from time to time update version 8 of passkey so it will decrypt newer blu rays and dvd's like you did for version 8 of Dvdfab yes it will mean extra work for Fab but it's customers are loyal and deserve it lets work together as we all want to be happy Fab customers.

    Like many others I got my copy of passkey on the DVD promo giveaway and as I have got a full life time license to DVDFab across the board. Not being able to upgrade from version 8 to version 9 will not be such an issue. DVDFab is a business and like any other business, if you don't make a profit you don't survive.
    The thing is though it would've been cool if this mystery newsletter telling us we can't go from 8 to 9 was sent out well in advance so some of us don't trip head long in to losing our Passkey 8. It is a great piece of software and handy to have and a lot of people, like myself who was, are going to be caught out.
    I am lucky that I have still have the giveaway e-mail and the original install engine but many won't. I guess the trick know is to see if I can find 8.2.8.5 install engine somewhere 8o)
    Still...Big DVDFab Fan...great products!
    It is available at the DOWNLOAD CENTER, sitting side by side with version 9. Check it here at http://www.dvdfab.cn/download.htm

    HTH, the newsletter was actually sent out and on its way to recipients at the same time when Passkey 9 was made available online, however, due to the fact that there are too many recipients, it could be a couple of hours later when you actually see it in your inbox.

    We will relocate Passkey 8 to the DOWNLOAD CENTER, side by side with Passkey 9, so that those who do not want to upgrade to Passkey 9 can easily find Passkey 8, and continue to use it to decrypt old DVD and Blu-ray collections.

    Should be in you windows downloads but you still need the key that was sent in a email when you got the free program.Hope you kept that email as attached to it is the key you will need to make the lifetime license work.I don't think they will email you the key again for the giveaway version that's what they said when I asked but staff will have to reply to see if anything has changed as this response was given before this new version came out.If you backed up your email you may have a copy with the key in your back ups.Windows restore can also be used to get it back do so right away.

    Passkey never expire

    Yes, I downloaded the passkey 9 version, thinking this was an update which is what it said. Then I get a letter saying you have to pay for it. Now I would like to have ver 8 back, with the Never Expire license. How can I get it back, can't find it.

    Glad you decided to give licenses to paying users.
    Problems i have with the way you did this:
    In changelog no mentioning of this.
    People update passkey finds problems spend time,asks in forums,get the answer to contact support,send mails to support.
    Later an news-email about the new version,where its explained giveaways wont work anymore in the new version.
    Would be really nice to know these changes BEFORE you made this version avaible for download.
    Regards Hasse
    Thanks for your understanding, hasse, actually we sent out the newsletter to all our customers, paid and non-paid, at the same time when Passkey 9 is made available online. However, due to the huge number of recipients, when the newsletter actually reaches you, it might be several hours later.

    understandable - your generosity through the giveaway was an excellent offer but you do need to make money.
