We have recently launched the new Umberto+ Generation!

Umberto maintenance and support service customers will get the update to the new Umberto+ version free of charge. We recommend Umberto NXT LCA customers to update to the new version called Umberto LCA+. All the familiar functions from Umberto NXT LCA will still be available, you will even benefit from the following new features:

  • Cost calculation for Life Cycle Costing, among others
  • Ability to use Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA)
  • Update to the new ecoinvent 3.4 database (available to all customers with a valid ecoinvent 3 license and the corresponding valid ecoinvent Maintenance)
  • Advanced modeling using scripting with Python
  • Software interface now also available in German

To find a more detailed overview of the new functions and technical novelties, please have a look at the Release Notes.

Since this is a new version of the software, you will not receive a regular update notification in Umberto NXT. Therefore you have to download the new version here and continue with the installation as usual. Have fun with all the new features!

When installing the new version, please note the instruction notes which we have summarized for you in a pdf file. Please read them carefully. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below this post or contact the Umberto support team at

You are an Umberto customer without an Umberto maintenance and support service, and you are interested in the new Umberto LCA+ version? Then please contact

Dear Laura, have a good day.

I've been having issues to enter Umberto and I was hoping you, or any of the Umberto forum fellows could help me with some guidance.

The issue is the following.

As I try to authenticate my license to launch Umberto NXT LCA, a pop opens with the warning "The license key has exceeded its expiry date", after I accept this warning and close the authentication window, another pop up opens with the message "This version of Umberto NXT LCA has expired. Please contact ifu Hamburg at

I sent a mail to this adress and to support almost a week ago and they have not replied yet. I'm in a serious hurry to finish some models I have pending.

Now, I wonder if this issues answer to a version issue, and I should update my Umberto in order to regain access to it.

Beforehand thank you for your help.

Kind regards,
