Re: Download to do a fresh install
The version 5 licences and software are a complete mystery (mess) these days.
It changes all the time - by the time you come to do your move, there will a new policy and pricing system in place. Yes, there was a free version, but not any more - making it more difficult for customers to get on board with X-Cart.
You could try asking in your helpdesk for a downloadable version.
HOWEVER, when moving hosts, most hosts will transfer the site for you - anyone who deserves your business will do this for you free of charge.
Also, you might be able to do it yourself, quite easily, via cpanel - if both hosts have it.
