-Moreover, Bing is no longer allowing users to register for version 1 of the Bing Search APIthis means that existing AppId will continue working until August 1, but **new users will not be able to obtain an AppId and therefore will not be able to use BootCaT**.+In order to continue using the programyou need to **upgrade to version 0.61** (available on the [[|official BootCaT Website]]).
-Introducing **version 2.0** of the search API, Bing said that "for up to 5,000 queries per month, developers can access the API for free on the Windows Azure Marketplace.
