In our contemporary world today’s technology becomes outdated and eventually obsolete. Betamax is replaced by VHS, which is replaced by DVDs, then Blu-Ray, then streaming, etc.

In the PC world, we’ve gone from Windows 98, to XP, to 7, Vista, 8, 8.1 and now Windows 10. Along the path of progress, related devices must be updated, upgraded, or discarded. Remember the Palm Pilot? And Microsoft introduced XP way back in 2001!

Sign making software is no exception. As the digital infrastructure gets upgraded, support for old software, such as LXi 8.5 just goes away.

It’s time to move on. Now’s the time to upgrade your old LXi software and keep your business moving forward.

LXi 8.5 End of Life

If you have an LXi 8.5 soft key license, you may already be aware of this because the support structure for your software has failed. LXi 8.5 reached its end of life several years ago.  Working in concert with SAI, we reached out to all of our known 8.5 users and offered a grace period in which these licenses could be upgraded. That period has passed and SAI has discontinued support for LXI 8.5 has been discontinued. The server that supported these licenses has gone dark and they must be replaced. The simplest solution is a new LXI 12 license. You can order online or call our equipment software group at 800-899-5655 to speak to a sales consultant. The call center is open Monday – Friday from 7am – 6pm CDT. Give us a call. We’ll put you in a sturdy digital lifeboat. From there, you can wave goodbye to VHS, Windows XP, and LXi 8.5.
