Expiring license - what happens after?

+1 vote

Hi all, and sorry if this has been asked before.

In the Licensing FAQ it states:

What happens when my Wwise license expires?

When your license expires, Wwise reverts to Free Trial mode and you are limited to 200 media assets in the Wwise SoundBanks. Also, any Premium plug-ins in use will no longer be available for use in Wwise SoundBanks. Contact your Wwise Developer Relations Team representative directly, or you can reach the Wwise Developer Relations Team here.

What happens when my Wwise Limited Commercial License expires?

The Wwise Limited Commercial License is extendable by the user within the Audiokinetic Customer Portal project account page. A button to extend your Free Commercial License will appear when you are within 30 days of your upcoming expiration.


But what happens to the project if you don't extend? Does the built app already published including soundbanks continue to run? Does it continue to run with now max 200 sounds? Or does the app stop working and requires a new build?

My projects so far are 

So I ask in terms of this. Thanks in advance

Also curious exactly what happens, at the built software level, when the license expires.
