Will I be able to buy "DAEMON Tools Pro" in a shop or for example at amazon.de??? Or can you just download DT Pro here on the site and have to register after test periode???
I heard that DT4 will be for free and DT Pro will cost! How much will it cost approximately?

As far as I know, you'll only be able to buy Daemon Tools via share*it. You'll get to the order form by clicking the Register DAEMON Tools (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/dt_register.php) button.

The current version of Daemon Tools costs $15.95, I assume that DTv4 will cost the same. Daemon Tools Pro will probably be more expensive, however you can buy Daemon Tools now and you will get DT Pro v1 as a free upgrade.

I'm getting confused here, you say that you can buy Daemon Tools now for $15.95 and you will get DT Pro too.
But you also say that DT Pro will probably be more expensive. Will they increase the cost of DT Pro later or what?
Please explain.

This really is for NetSoerfer to reply, but I'll but in.

There is no explanation at all. Its just a guess Methadon. He italiced the word assume. I have seen other people on this forum make the same guess a few months ago. If you want to know why this makes sense, think of new cars. Aren't they usually more expensive than the new cars offered the year before? Explaining an assumption like this could be impossible so I'll just shut up and hope I didn't make things more muddled.

p.s. I agree with NetSoerfer (but don't quote me on it because both NetSoerfer and I could be guessing wrong )

Methadon what he means is that if you register the current version of Daemon Tools ($15.95) now you will recieve DT4 and DT Pro for free later on. Locutusof Borg has stated before that the price of DT Pro has not been decided and can very well change before the release date. This means that any users who haven't registered before the new DT release may have to pay more on release date.

Thanks for the explanations, even if you (Underhraven) says that there are no explanation at all. ;)
I just misunderstood a couple of things, but now I understand.

p.s. Here's a good example. I wanted to go back and edit my original post but this is a busy discussion. Nero 4,5,6 all came with my cd-rom drives but check out the price for Nero 7 on amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000BCGFCO/) its $99.99 discounted to 79.99. It's also 79.99 on Ahead's website.

Soaring prices like that make me feel lucky so pay less. And also when I see low gas prices at the pump - the feeling that it's too good to be true and it's short lived http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/images/icons/icon12.gif

If you have a look at the Register DAEMON Tools (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/dt_register.php) page you'll notice the following sentence:
Registering allows you to use ALL future versions of DAEMON Tools!

If you bought (or buy) DTv3, that statement (...ALL future versions...) entitles you to use DTPro as well. This will remain true vor DTv4 too until DTPro is released.

DTv3 costs $15.95; having the same features, DTv4 will probably cost the same. DTPro offers a lot more features so it'll probably be more expensive.

So if you buy DTv3 now (or DTv4 before DTPro is released) you'll get a license for DTPro with it, all for $15.95. If you wait until DTPro is released, you'll get DTv4 for $15.95 (again, that's just an assumed price!), but you'll have to pay more to get DTPro.

By the way, I have no idea if the price for DTPro will differ whether you're using it for private or commercial purposes.

In Germany you could by it in "Saturn" and "Media Markt" for 53 Euro or 56.:D

DT 1.0 pro will not cost more than 15.99, because DT4 will cost 15.99 and you will get DT1.0 pro free if you buy DTV4, or DTV3 whitch is also 15.99

EDIT: I just read this is not necessarily true, sorry

Buy not buy, mambo jumbo, 15, 16...20, 55, 100 bucks!!!! eerrgghhh. If you want the damn "thing" because it rocks you'll pay the price. And for the "15$ before release date, and after release..." this is all supositions. It's exactly like the past questions for DT4 release date. Nothing is certain, but we here, because the lack of sleep, make these supositions. Wait people untill the right time, and they'll take your money,....and gladly. :)
Peace out there!

I was under the impression that registering atm was to support the developers or to buy it if you are in an organisation (where you have DT v3 installed on multiple machines), also registering will get you every Pro version ever released.
DT v4 (as far as I know) is free

There is some confusion about the version numbers.

Daemon Tools v4 will be the successor of DTv3. It'll have the same interface and the same features as DTv3, supporting Windows XP x64 and be free for personal use. For commercial use, licenses will have to be bought.
Everybody who has a license when DTPro is released (no matter whether it's a license for v3 or v4) will get a DTPro license for free.

Daemon Tools Pro v1.0 will have additional features like a virtual IDE drive, CD image creation etc. It will *not* be free for personal use. Personally I expect it to be more expensive than DTv3, whereas DTv4 will probably cost the same as v3. This is an assumption though.

OK, now I'm even more confused.
If somebody registers for DT3 now, they will get DT4 and DT Pro for free.
But if somebody registers after Dt4 is released, they will have to buy DT Pro and Pro versions after that????
Is that right, Admin or betateam?

DTv4 is for free (if you use it personal or if you don't want to support the devs), if you've bought dtv3 you'll get pro for free.
If you've bought DTv4 when DT Pro isn't out yet you'll get dt pro for free.
So if DT Pro is out you couldn't buy dtv4 anymore because it's for free, the buyable version will be DT Pro.

But if somebody registers after ...After every new version release the pricing may be changed (or even more often than that). There aren't any guarantees about future pricing packages and what's included except that you know the current price buys you everything. And it doesn't take any beta or admin knowledge to have this idea.

DTv4 will only be free for personal use and will still be available to buy I imagine.

No the buyable version will be Pro, as DT4 will be free. Before there was only one version, DT3, and you could only buy that, but now there will be a free version, and a buy-to-use version.

So if DT Pro is out you couldn't buy dtv4 anymore because it's for free, the buyable version will be DT Pro.

Daemon Tools v3.x: $15.95, free for personal use
Daemon Tools v4.x: about $15.95, free for personal use
Daemon Tools Pro v1.x: more than $15.95

If you'll have bought a license for DTv3 or DTv4 before DTPro is released, you'll get a license for DTPro for free.

And yes, that means that DTv4 will still be sold when DTPro is released.

Can we stop the speculations now please? This is what it's going to be. Believe it or don't, but please don't cause any more confusion.
