How do I upgrade my current license to MAXQDA 24?

Modified on Fri, 26 Apr 2024 at 01:57 PM

Your upgrade option depends on the type of your contract.


As a subscriber, you have received an email with the new serial code, which starts with MQSI00-xxxx-... or MQNE00-xxxx-...

You can find your new serial number in your subscription manager account or look up your new serial number here.


Students with a valid license can upgrade for free through this upgrade page.

Perpetual License

As the holder of a perpetual license, you will find a special offer in our shop.

We no longer offer perpetual licenses, but instead, annual subscriptions and licenses that automatically expire after 3 or 5 years.

This way, you always have access to the latest features of MAXQDA, including AI-support.


Please download and install MAXQDA24.

Then enter the new serial number. You can recognize the serial number for MAXQDA 24 by the number 00, for example: MQSI00-xxxxxx-xxxxxx...

Now open your existing project file with the .mx22 extension. Your project will now be automatically converted to an MAXQDA 24 project file.

For further information, please refer to the Online Manual.
