You are entitled for a free upgrade to version 7 if you purchased your BoostC 6.x license after February 1st 2010 (email us your current license info and we'll send you your new 7.x key). Upgrades of Pro licenses also include free Novo (Goodies) upgrade. If you purchased your 6.x license before February 2010 you'll need to buy an upgrade license, you can find details here:

I started a new project today and got a notification that a new version of the compiler was available. So I upgraded.

 

Tried to build and just like the OP I got a failure notice saying that my licence had expired. OK I should have checked before upgrading, but I have now happily paid for a new licence (your payment system is not very user friendly but that’s another issue).

 

Now I’ve received an email to say that my licence key will be with me in three days. So, my project is on hold for three days. I am certainly not happy about that.

 

Have I done something wrong here or have you really designed a system that puts a three-day hole in your customers’ schedules each time we upgrade to the next version?

No thats a worst case scenario in case things delayed with the payment clearance (imagine a customer uses the bank of Outer Mongolia). Most users receive their license keys withing a few hours. Looking at the records it looks like you should have yours by now.

Make sure to check any spam filters as this mail comes from sales@sourceboost.com, so the mail frequently goes their.

Nope. 48 hours after the receipt, not a sign. I hope I don't have to reload version 6.

 

What's your order number?

Pavel
