Default Aerofly 7 to 8 OSX Discount???

How to get the discount going from Aerofly 7 to 8? Mac App store only shows me these options when I search for "Aerofly."

Yes, I tried that but the blue box in the link causes my "App Store" application to display the message "Cannot Connect to the App Store" even though I'm already connected to the App Store.

Looking at the prices displayed in the first post above, does the App Store somehow 'know' I already have "7" and have priced the "8" version already with the discount?? I see the price I'm getting for "8" to be USD $124.99. Is that already the discount? Or will it be even less with the discount? If so, I'd like to buy it today.

The RC8 is a new program. To make an upgrade possible IPACS created a "bundle" for RC7 and RC8 for $99

Only RC7 users can purchase this bundle

If you see the full price on this page
https://itunes.apple.com/de/app-bund...59842259?mt=12

there can be different reasons

- you are not logged in into your iTunes Account

- you changed your Apple ID or are using new one compared to the one used in the original RC7 purchase

If you are logged in you should see the reduced price

After purchasing you should get a full RC8 download without deleting or rebuilding the former RC7

Still not working can't get past the "Cannot Connect to the App Store" screen identical to what as shown in Post #3. However, the link below erases the "Cannot Connect to the App Store" and shows that I can buy the app for $124.99 with my Apple Account. I only have one account.

https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/aero...8/id1453969115 Connects to the App Store Fine

When I go back to the link here, it reverts to "Cannot Connect to the App Store" screen.

https://itunes.apple.com/de/app-bund...59842259?mt=12 Does not connect to the App Store

Checked it again today but the link to the AppStore for the discount is still broken. Maybe they are still working on this? A search of the AppStore still only shows the $124.99 version. Can it be purchased anywhere other than the AppStore?
If I buy the $124.99 version, can I get a refund?

Still trying to upgrade. Looks like this is one year later. Only price I can see is $124. Where is the $99 upgrade? Is this still available. I'd still like to upgrade from Ultimate 7 if possible. On app store, I can now connect but only see $124.99 version.

The other thing I tried was to open up Aerofly Ultimate 7 and see if I could upgrade to 8 from inside the program. However, the only thing available is a drop-down that indicates "Restore Purchases."

Ok so after all this time maybe some confusion; in the title OSX may not mean MAC to the windoze people. I did try the 99euro upgrade but when I got to enter my serial number from my original Mac disk it won't take it. That was good, because would have purchased the WINDOWS version which I can't use.

Anyway, to close out this thread, the OSX/MAC version at $125 is the only way to get the Aerofly 8, so I will purchase that.

Thanks
