In general we offer no upgrade discounts. But there are exceptions. Here is our policy.

* If you're upgrading a full version jump, there is no upgrade discount. A full version jump is when the number after the "v" increases at least a whole digit, i.e. v3.2 to v4.0 is a full version jump. For example upgrading from ProBeam v5.01 to v6.0 is a full version jump, so no discount would apply.

* If you're upgrading within a version, the upgrade is free. Within a version means that the number after the "v" stays the same, but the number after the "." changes. This typically happens because a bug has been found in the earlier version. For example to upgrade from ProBeam v5.0 to v5.01 would be free. You must Contact Us for this free upgrade.

* If we launch a new full version jump within 3 months of your purchase, you may upgrade for free. For example if you purchase ProBeam v5.01 on 7/1/13 and we launch v6.0 on 8/15/13, that upgrade to v6.0 is free. You must Contact Us for this free upgrade.

* Bundles. There is no upgrade discount on bundles. However, individual programs within the bundle follow the rules above. For example if you purchase a ConstructionCalc Bundle that includes ProBeam v5.01 on 7/1/13, and we launch ProBeam v6.0 on 8/15/13, you may upgrade ProBeam for free. As another example if your Bundle purchase includes ProBeam v5.0 and we upgrade ProBeam to v5.01, you may get that upgrade of ProBeam for free. You must Contact Us for these free upgrades.

One License Per Purchase - Illegal Copies

All software products sold on this website are subject to state, national, and international software laws and may not be illegally copied, sold, distributed or the like.

Programs purchased on this website are single seats and may only be used by the original purchaser on one computer at a time.

The original purchaser may be an individual person or a company. If a company, different persons within the company may use a single seat on different computers as long as only one copy is open at a time.

Macros - Must Be Enabled

Many of the Excel-based products we sell contains macros, which are small pieces of computer code necessary for proper operation. These must be Enabled or you may get a popup warning when you try to run a DropDown, Button, or other control; or certain functions just won't work at all. Excel wants to be sure that all macros are safe, from a reliable source. With products sold on this website, you can be sure that the macros are safe, i.e. do not contain viruses or other malware.

Remedy: Enable macros upon opening. In Excel '07 and later there is a Security Warning and Option box in the upper left of the screen for this. Excel '03 prompts you when opening the Workbook. Always select Enable Macros.
