Now that Workstation V. 3.54 and older versions are "freely" available and Curtis gives the necessary password for it on this Forum, I wonder how many more years might have to go by before old versions of Workstation 4 become "freely"available with password.

Workstation 4 uses activation codes attached to the hardware serial number being used (Tracker or Prober) so an open password version is not possible.

But in 30 years time if we are still here will you guys be still wanting $1500.00 plus for early versions of Workstation 4, when Workstation 5 or 6 is the current version?!?

That would be for the next generation of Huntronians to decide.

I still don't see why the early versions of workstation up to Ver. 4 to 4.2 should be charged at the same price as the current version 4.3 +at Price: $3,495.00 !!
I guess last years Workstatation is just as valuable, unlike last years car, iPhone, or Windows operating system!!

The pricing structure for Workstation recently changed. A license for a Tracker WITH Prober is still $3495.00. A Tracker 3200S, Model 30 and ProTrack license is $1995.00. A Tracker 2800 license is $1495.00. Licenses are only required if your activation code is expired (or you do not have a valid code) otherwise we only charge the maintenance fee.

Well we are all living longer and here in the U.K. his Majestys Government are now talking of making the pension age at 68.
By then as long as no foolish power blows the whole world up the most recent CEO of Huntron might give you the source code if your still wanting it.!!
