DisplayFusion License Changes

DisplayFusion was first released in August of 2007, over 3 years ago! During the last 3 years, DisplayFusion has grown into a must-have utility for anyone with multiple monitors. Licensing has changed as well over the years, with the introduction of a paid Pro version nearly 2 years ago. This paid Pro version was licensed on a per-computer basis, requiring multiple licenses to be purchased for use on multiple computers. After quite a bit of feedback from the DisplayFusion community, I have decided to shuffle the licensing around a little bit.

New License Type: Personal Home license

Starting today, you can now purchase a DisplayFusion Pro Personal Home license. This new license is for home users ONLY, and is not a valid license for company users. The license allows a home user to purchase 1 license, and install it on all of their computers. It's like a mini site license for home users. If you are a home user that has already purchased a DisplayFusion Pro license and you would like to upgrade to a Personal Home license at a discounted price, please contact me.

Free Version License Changes

Another licensing change is a new restriction on free version usage. Starting with version 3.2, the free version of DisplayFusion will no longer be allowed to be used in a company environment. If you are using the free version of DisplayFusion in a company, you have 2 options: keep using 3.1.10 without any restrictions or convince your company to purchase a DisplayFusion Pro license. A single license is just $25, and with multiple licenses you can reduce this to just $15 per license. DisplayFusion needs your support, and every DisplayFusion Pro license purchased will help!

Final Thoughts

If you have any questions or comments, I encourage you to contact me. If you are using the free version of DisplayFusion, and you can't live without it, why not pitch-in and support the development of future versions? It's only $25 and your purchased license will be valid with all future versions of DisplayFusion!

I use it at home and my work PC, but its not for "corporate" use, just personal use while at work. I don't even configure it to start under any login but my own.

Is that still personal?

I think I can let that slide, as long as it is you that owns the license and not your company.

WOW!

I recently discovered your program, and was on the fence about free vs pro, I really only use it on one machine at home, but could use it on my work computer, which also has two screens. Your very reasonable, generous answer to this question made my decision easy. The check is in the mail...

Thanks!
