The company used to be the Rovi Corporation's software division (at the time Rovi was still named Macrovision). On 1 April 2008, Macrovision sold its software division to the Thoma Bravo investment fund.[1]

In October 2009, Acresso Software, Inc. became Flexera Software.[2]

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.
