How do I upgrade?
Upgrade to Embird 2022 from previous versions of Embird (i.e. from Embird 2021 and older) is a paid upgrade.

Registration New Main Password

Upgrade from version 2021 and older to Embird 2022 is a paid upgrade and a new main registration password is required. Otherwise, the new software runs only in demo mode. The upgrade fee is £36 for registered users of Embird 2021 and 2020 and more for users of an older version.

The registration numbers for all plug-ins from previous Embird versions are valid in Embird 2022. You do not need to pay for these plug-ins again. However, to use these plug-ins with Embird 2022, you have to upgrade to Embird 2022 to obtain the new main password for Embird 2022.

In other words, if you are a registered user of previous version of Embird (version 2021 or older), your plug-in registration numbers for Alphabets, Font Engine, Iconizer, Digitizing Studio, Sfumato Stitch and Cross Stitch will work also in Embird 2022. You only need to pay the upgrade fee for the Basic Embird Program 2022.
