Why is the software so inexpensive?
We offer the software for downloading only, it means that you do not receive a fancy package, a printed manual and license that actually aggregate the largest part of the retail price. In this situation we are restricted in selling the products for private purposes only! You will not be able to get a technical support and different rebates from the manufacturer. Updates are available for the most of our products (you may ask our support staff for the exceptions) that make them fully functional and operating. Additionally you save the delivery cost.
Is this an upgrade software?
No, we sell only full versions, which can be installed without having any previous version of the product.
What operating systems does your software support?
Unless stated all our products are for the Windows 98x, NT, ME, 2000, XP platform. However you should remember that the ultimate versions of software do not run on operational systems launched before the 2000. In case you are not sure about the compatibility of your machine with the product you would like to purchase we suggest to search for the system requirements on the manufacturers official web site.
What are the languages of the software?
All the products mentioned at the site are in ENGLISH language, unless stated another in the Product description.
Is it possible to get a CD instead of downloading the software?
No, we do not send software on disks.
Do you have software for Macintoshes?
We do not have Mac-software available at the moment however we plan to extend our product range, so please check the product list and the News section on your accounts periodically!
How do I make sure that I am getting the latest release?
Not all the versions of the software we sell are the latest releases. For additional information address the manufacturer's website.
What is the format of files for downloading?
Most of the software is offered for downloading in SFX-archive files. SFX-archive (self-extract) is an EXE file, thus it does not require any additional software on your PC to be opened.
Some products also contain ISO versions of installation files. Such files are for burning CD copies. ISO files require special CD-burning software to be used. The content of ISO files is equal to SFX-archive, however the size is usually bigger.
A number of products (all operating systems and some others, look for the full list in Term section, p. 2.7.1) which must be installed from CDs is offered only in ISO format.
Please read the instructions on your account before starting installation. You will find the detailed manual for using of your type of files.
Should I have any special programs to install the software purchased and downloaded from you?
Most of the programs do not require any special software to be installed; however there are some items (look for the full list in Term section, p. 2.7.1) that must be installed only from the CD. To burn the CD correctly you should have CD-R or CD-RW and CD-burning software, e.g. Nero Burning Suite or Roxio Easy Media Creator. We give a free version of Ahead Nero 6.3 with products that require burning to CD.
The file I have downloaded is identified by my computer as ZIP/RAR file, but I can not open it with the archiver program.
On your account it is stated that the file is in ISO format. You can not just open it using the archiver, but you should burn the file to a CD. On the User account you will find the instructions how to burn the image disk correctly.
Can I download to one PC and install on another?
Yes, you can. We even advice to download the software on a computer with better type of the Internet connection.
