On 1 April 2008, Macrovision sold its software division to the Thoma Bravo investment fund.[1], which became Acresso Software. Macrovision subsequently changed its name to Rovi Corporation.

In October 2009, Acresso Software, Inc. became Flexera Software.[2] after a clash with a company of similar name.

Flexera acquired Australian based ManageSoft in 2010.[3] Managesoft was OSA (Open Software Associates), which itself came out of HP's Australian Software Organisation.

On July 19, 2011 Thoma Bravo sold a majority stake in Flexera Software LLC to Teachers' Private Capital, the private investment department of the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan. The transaction was finalized on October 3, 2011.

On September 26, 2018, Flexera acquired RightScale for an undisclosed amount.[4]
