Any plans for a Black Friday / Cyber Monday discount?
I'd love to upgrade from the last free version and support your app, but $40 is a little more than I was hoping to pay. I came to the Windows Store tonight expecting to buy it for $20 because that's the last price I remember it being.

I recommend going for the $6 per year option:
viewtopic.php?t=6265

:idea: At this point, pricing has stabilized, there's something for everyone, so price changes are not expected in the near-term or long-term future.



EDIT:

:idea: I did forget, Microsoft did reach out to me to participate in their Black Friday and Countdown sales, so there will be a 20% discount on the Windows Store for those events.

Hi,

I just talked to Microsoft support and told them that I purchased filebot on the 1/10/2017 and they verified that I purchased it but they told me that they have no way to issueing filebot license. They said that they don't have access to reissuing filebot license...

If you are using the Microsoft Store, then you must install FileBot via the Microsoft Store. If you install FileBot via the Microsoft Store, then your license is built-in and you thus don't have a or need a license.


:!: A Microsoft Store Purchase (purchased from Microsoft via the Store) is not to be confused with an independent FileBot Universal License (purchased from this website). These are two entirely separate things: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6265


:!: If FileBot asks for a license, then you're using a version of FileBot downloaded from this website, and not your Microsoft Store Purchase. Uninstall all versions of FileBot you may have installed and then only install FileBot via the Microsoft Store, so that you can make use of your Microsoft Store Purchase.

Nope. The Windows Store was a stop-gap-solution in 2017/18 but now we have our own universal license system:
viewtopic.php?t=6265

:idea: You may apply for a free 1-year complimentary universal license though.

I own the Windows Store version, but it is not currently working with TVDB due to the API issues. I am running version 4.8.5 (latest in Windows store).

I tried downloading the beta, 4.9.0, to see if that would work and it does, but I cannot use it because I do not have a license key.

Is there a way to use the beta version through the Windows Store? Right now I cannot use the software and I really need it.

Thank you

Sent. Thank you for giving the latest beta a spin. Please let me know if you find any issues.


:!: Note that 4.8.5 and 4.9.0 are identical as far as TheTVDB client code is concerned. Not much FileBot can do about TheTVDB services being down. These kinds of issues resolve themselves after a day usually.

1.
Please include screenshots if you have questions about the GUI, as that will make understanding so much easier.


2.
TheTVDB is having issues. All other databases should work just fine.

I purchased the windows version of filebot and since that time I've used it regularly. I just recently installed a nasbox and want to use filebot there as a docker but it asks for a key. I don't have a license key. do I have to purchase it again?

Sure, PM me your story and I'll see what I can do.


:idea: There's also new program nowadays that is designed to improve FileBot by observing various use cases of real-world users:

Thanks for the reply! How would one go about applying for a 1-year complimentary universal license?

AFAIK, Microsoft Store purchases cannot be transferred, but you'd have to ask Microsoft Support for an official answer.


If you want to switch to a universal license, then we can offer this:
