*To help Enterprise and Automation Edition customers update, an extended support extension is available for BarTender 2016 for a limited time. Contact our Renewals Team for more details.

Starting with BarTender 2019, we’ve simplified the EOS cycle and made it 6 years of guaranteed support starting with the release date of that version. The only assistance that will be offered for unsupported BarTender versions are activation related issues (only for BarTender licenses with a product key code).
