PLEASE NOTE:

* Customer Service is provided for only those problems related to orders, exchanges, rebates and returns. Customer Service does NOT provide support for either installation problems or functionality ('how-to' or 'how does it work') problems.

* Technical Support is provided for only those problems related to installing/uninstalling, error messages or problems that are stopping you from running the program. Technical Support does not provide support for functionality ('how-to' or 'how does it work') problems.

The first most important point which must always be kept in mind when contacting either Customer Service or Technical Support is that questions which are submitted to either Customer Service or Technical Support are ALWAYS answered in the order they are received. However, since both Customer Service and Technical Support often experience a backlog, you might not receive an answer for several days. Please DO NOT submit a 2nd or 3rd question - because this only increases the backlog.

* Functionality Support ('how-to' or 'how does it work') is provided only on these Hoyle forums.
