Minor releases are free for all users. For example, if you have a license for version 5.0 of SQL Source Control, you can upgrade to version 5.1 at no cost. When you download and install a minor release, SQL Source Control is licensed with your existing serial number automatically.
Major releases are free for users with a current Support and Upgrades contract. For example, if you have a license for version 5 of SQL Source Control, you can upgrade to version 6 at no cost. When you download and install a major release, SQL Source Control is licensed with your existing serial number automatically.
If you don't have a current Support and Upgrades contract, installing a major release will start a free 28-day trial. You'll need to buy a new license and activate the product with your new serial number.

How to upgrade
You can download the latest version of a product by checking for updates or on the Redgate website. If you download the latest version from our website, you need to run the installer to upgrade the product.
Installing a new version of SQL Source Control will always upgrade the existing installation. To revert to an earlier version, uninstall the later version, then download and install the version you want from the Release notes and other versions page.
You can use a serial number for a later version to activate an earlier version.
