in former C4D releases the 4th digit beeing "3" was the indicator for a temporary serial. Has that behavior changed?

A customer asks for a new plugin license to run with his final R18 serial. The former serial is 148044*****, the current one is 148040*****. So the 6th digit has changed from "4" to "0".

Is that a change from temporary to permanent? Or is it another kind of legal update?

Thanks for any hints.

OK, I assume it is a Short-Term License

It would be helpful to know, if we could rely on the 6th digit beeing "4" in these short-term license keys. Otherwise we cannot differentiate time limited licenses from permanent ones.

Any comments?

Hi Klaus,

just want to let you know, that I'm working on it (as well as Pim's serial number related question in the other thread).
