WELCOME TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) WHAT IS SHAREWARE?
Shareware is a marketing method of computer software in which
the user has a chance to try the software before buying it
(Try-Bofore-You-Buy). The user can freely copy the shareware
version of the program and install it on his/her computer.
After the evaluation period (typically about 4 weeks), if the
user decides that he/she likes the program and wants to use it,
he/she should register the program by sending the registration
fee to the program author.
2) WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I REGISTER?
After you register PrimaSoft will send you a diskette (by mail)
with the registered version(s) of the program(s).
If you register on-line on the Internet (through our First Virtual
store) you will be able to download the registered version(s) of
the program(s) - in this case we will not send a disk by mail.
3) IF YOU DECIDE TO REGISTER ONE PROGRAM - SPECIAL OFFER?
If you decide to register for one program you can order any number
of our Windows Collection products at discounted prices:
- regular prices $17 => reduced to $5;
- regular prices $22 => reduced to $10.

4) HOW CAN I REGISTER FOR MORE THAN 1 PROGRAM ON COMPUSERVE (THROUGH SWREG)
AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR SPECIAL OFFER?
Compuserve does not support discounted prices directly. There is a way
around this: just send us an e-mail message (our address is 74643,2635)
with a list of programs that you want to register for - we will tell you
how to do it (the procedure depends on the total price).
5) CAN I REGISTER USING MY CREDIT CARD?
We don't accept credit cards at the moment. However we are
working on it. In the near future you will be able to register
over the phone using your VISA or Master Card.
6) WHERE CAN I FIND THE SHAREWARE VERSIONS OF ALL YOUR PROGRAMS?
- on Compuserve the best place to look for our software is WinShare
Forum; just GO WINSHARE and do a Search by Contributor on 74643,2635;
- on America Online, use the KEYWORD function (under GO TO menu item).
Enter the keyword "WINDOWS FORUM" or "WIN", which will take you to the main
menu of the Windows Forum. Click on the Software Libraries button on
that screen; on the next screen select the Software Search button. On the
resulting search form just type PRIMASOFT in the search box, press
and the file names will come up on a list.
- on the Internet you can find our programs on a number of "anonymous"
ftp sites e.g. oak.oakland.edu, ftp.cica.indiana.edu, garbo.uwasa.fi,
ftp.fv.com, etc. Look for the files that start with "am_" and have a
7) CAN I SAFELY ENTER MY DATA INTO THE SHAREWARE VERSION(S) OF YOUR
Yes, absolutely. To be on the safe side, however, you should backup your
data every once in a while. In most cases our data files have the name
DATA.DAT or at least DAT extension. In the case of Contact Book the data
file name is DATA.CNT. When you receive the registered version of the
program you can safely install it in the same directory as the shareware
version - in this case the shareware version of the program will be deleted
but the data file will be preserved. If you decide to install the registered
version into a different directory don't forget to copy the data file (if
you have already entered some data using the shareware version).
8) WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SHAREWARE AND REGSITERED
VERSIONS OF YOUR SOFTWARE?
Assuming you have the latest shareware version of our software there
are no functional differences between the Shareware and Registered
versions. The Registered version will not display the Registration
Reminder screens and is not time-limited. We always send the
latest registered version of our software.
9) IS THERE A PRINTED MANUAL INCLUDED WITH YOUR REGISTERED VERSION?
No, we don't include any printed documentation. You will only
receive a short letter with Installation instructions. If you have
problems using our software try reading help messages - just click
with the right mouse button on different parts of the program.
Once you learn how to use one of our programs you should have no
trouble using all our other programs.
