If I recently purchased a 3.0 VS2010 license (on July 12, 2012), will there be a charge to upgrade to 3.1 for VS2012? At the time, I thought I was purchasing a 2012 license, but found out after install that it was a 2010 license.
I just paid the upgrade fee for going from a 2.10 for VS2010 to the 3.0 license. My 2.10 license was a paid upgrade from a 2.8 license, and my 2.8 license was a paid upgrade from a 2.6 license. The 2.6 for VS2010 version was my original purchase. It even seems like paying for 3 upgrades is unreasonable, but if I have to pay for 4 upgrades, that is extremely unreasonable, and at that rate I would have to consider an alternative product. I am a one person development company, and my budget for software is very slim to begin with.
So I really hope there will be a way to upgrade my 15 day old 3.0 VS2010 license to a 3.1 VS2012 license as soon as the 3.1 VS2012 version is officially released.
