Support team gone? License 'expired'?

Has anyone else been having trouble getting in contact with the support team? I started a private discussion with them back in the middle of November and have not had any response. I've also sent two emails to the support email address twice since then, also with no responses. Are they on vacation maybe?

Anyway, maybe someone else out there has been having the same trouble as me. Recently when Path Finder 9 was released, I was informed when I updated that my existing Path Finder 8 license was good for version 9 as well, because it had been purchased within the past year. However, a couple of weeks after the upgrade I started getting the reminder to purchase popping up when I opened Path Finder, and I discovered I had been placed back in trial mode. I tried to put my license in again, but now it tell me, "This license is expired for this version of Path Finder." So now I'm confused; am I supposed to be able to use version 9, or not? Anyone else having the same problem?

    I think there is no longer support for this product unless you pay extra for it ($8 per request, iirc), and that they are relying on forums to take care of the rest of it. Pretty shitty, imo for what the app costs.

    Well this forum has an obvious spam post from Nov28 so yes it looks like Support is not reading this forum.

    There is a thread I responded to from Nov 25 which has no response from support

    Hmm, that doesn't sound promising. I hope nothing bad has happened.

    Well, nearly two months after first submitting a support email, and still not so much as a hint of anything from the 'support team.' I probably would have been willing to pay for the upgrade if I had to, but not now. If this is really how the support is going to be, I'm out.

    Support is gone. You can see that they didnt reply to any thread in the last weeks or even month. PF is probably dead within some months.

    Yup tried support and sales since nov. no response.. same issue - i bought under a year since the update - a big blurb saying i had 1 year free for 9. So my 1st question was did this turn in to a subscription service and then then if its an upgrade how much? etc. Ignored. Then today i get "expired" and Buy at 36 bucks. ?? i sent another email. but ..well who knows.. perhaps i'll end up shopping for another solution. too bad since i've been using pathfinder forever.
