In our contemporary world today’s technology becomes outdated and eventually obsolete.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 is failing. LXi 8.5 reached its end of life several years ago. Your 8.5 software has either quit working or will soon stop working. Fortunately, we have an upgrade solution.

LXi 8.5 Upgrade to LXi 12

There’s a simple solution. You can choose to upgrade your LXi 8.5 license to the new cloud-based version which is LXi 12. If you opt for the upgrade you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of new features including online artwork approval, rhinestone wizard, contour-cut true-shape nesting, and of course full compatibility with Windows 10.
