Personal (1) to Professional (3) = 3 total supported installations
Personal (1) to Developer = Unlimited supported installations
Professional (3) to Developer = Unlimited supported installations
To upgrade, simply log in to your account and click on the Upgrade link. The license pricing will reflect your upgrade discount. The renewal date for your support and upgrade subscription will be adjusted to your most current purchase date.
