Important changes coming soon


After December 31, 2021, PTC will only offer new subscriptions of Mathcad Prime 7. For customers currently subscribed to Mathcad 15 and Mathcad Prime 1.0 – 6.0 who cannot yet move to Mathcad Prime 7, PTC is offering a multi-year renewal option. Customers who wish to take advantage of the multi-year renewal option must do so before December 7, 2021, so the associated licenses can be activated prior to December 31, 2021. At the end of the multi-year renewal term, these older versions of Mathcad will stop working and customers must move to Mathcad Prime 7 or above. This option is only available through December 7, 2021.
