Q: What Does The Support and Maintenance Subscription Cover?
A: The support and maintenance subscription gives you access to the latest product versions as they are released. Our Visual C++ products include complete source code for all samples and library components. Active-X products are distributed in binary format only, however, complete source code is included for all samples. Help documentation is also included and you will always have access to technical support and the latest software updates, maintenance and enhancements.
Q: How Long Do I Have To Renew My Subscription Once It Expires?
A: Our maintenance renewals run consecutively starting from the date your original maintenance expires. You may re-activate your subscription any time within 1 year of the expiration date at the renewal price. A renewal purchase will extend your subscription for 1 year from the date of expiration, and not the date of purchase.
Example 1: Maintenance expires 02-JAN-2016 and a renewal was purchased on or before 01-JAN-2016 will extend the subscription through 02-JAN-2017.
