Our publisher has confirmed that the 7.5 Upgrade is discontinued. As I understand it, they plan to continue selling the full 7.5 package for the foreseeable future.

Online updates are still available for older versions of our products going all the way back to RealFlight G3. Multiplayer is still supported all the way back to G4.5. Last I heard, product support would still make an attempt to help users with very old versions of the software even though they are officially discontinued.

I understand why some don't like to see the upgrade option end. I just want to point out that even when a product is discontinued--which 7.5 itself is not--that doesn't mean the product just goes away.

Can you please post in the RF-X Designer's Corner and provide more details? I am not aware of any issues that sound like what you're describing.

All the money goes to the same company so 7.5 upgrade or RF X software only are both "pure profit". They don't make the discs or sell the upgrade codes anymore so I am sure they had a meeting and came up with a reason. The fact that they still offer the full version of 7.5 should tell you they just don't want a $50 option out in the market. I guess they figure those who want to upgrade will be just fine skipping over 7.5 and paying full price for X. If the 7.5 upgrade was still out there I am sure the RF X software only sales would drop.
