Previous Versions of C4D

Is there a repository of old C4D demo versions?  Trying to make sure my plugin is tested on C4D13 through 15 both Windows and OSX.  I have found the differences between 13 and 15 in the docs and created different sources to support those but not 14. I only have R15 demo for Windows.  Need 13 and 14.

Can anybody help with this?  I feel it would't be worthwhile to only release the plugin for version 15 only.

You can send an e-mail to the MAXON support.

I asked the same question some years ago. I expect the answer is the same now as it was then: old demo versions are no longer available.

But the way I see it, go ahead with the R15 release anyway. In a few months there will probably be a new version of Cinema, then you will cover two versions. The number of R13 users is quite small and shrinking, so you aren't losing much market, and in any case, doing R13 builds when you've used the R14 or R15 SDK for development is a PITA.

Plus, you get the experience of releasing your plugin and dealing with users, and don't have to worry about people telling you that it works on one version but not the other.

Can I purchase old versions of Cinema4D or just get the SDKs?
