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.
Extended Support is currently only offered for BarTender 2016 (Edition restrictions apply) for an additional cost and requires an active Maintenance and Support plan.
The only assistance that will be offered for unsupported BarTender versions are activation related issues (only for BarTender licenses with a product key code).
