Add Trial to already published App RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have published a paid App in the Windows 8 Store, and now I want to add a Trial version.

    My new App will use something like the following code to verify if the customer is using a trial or the purchased App.

    currentApp = Windows.ApplicationModel.Store.CurrentApp;
    licenseInformation = currentApp.licenseInformation;
    if (licenseInformation.isTrial) ...

    My question is: when I’ll release my new App, the old customers who bought my previous App (the old version without the Trial feature), will be considered as owners of the App?

    In other words, (licenseInformation.isTrial) will return “false” for the old customers?

    Thank you.
