Vendor Update Program:
Most non-ASP vendors have standard procedures for acquiring new
files. They get them from other vendors, BBSs, etc. Most authors
cannot afford to mail disks to hundreds (perhaps thousands) of
vendors. However, some vendors prefer to obtain programs directly
from the authors. If you would like to obtain programs directly
from us, automatically, then please help us to cover the cost.
If you are NOT an ASP Approved Vendor (in good standing), but you
would still like to receive automatic updates directly from us,
then please take advantage of our Vendor Update Program. Under
this program you can receive updates for an entire year for only
$10 per program (this helps to offset our costs).
To receive updates, simply send us a letter with your name,
company name, mailing address, the name of the person we should
contact (such as your disk librarian), the program (or programs)
for which you would like to receive updates, and a check or money
order for $10 for each program (Countries outside of North
America please add an additional $10 per program). Payment in
U.S. funds drawn on a U.S. bank only please.
The Vendor Update Program is available for the following products
(as of September, 1992):
LiteSPC(tm) - Serial Port Capture TSR
LiteComm(tm) - Communications ToolBox
WinModem(tm) - Visible Windows Modem
All vendors participating in our Vendor Update Program will
automatically receive any NEW programs which we may release while
their Vendor Update Program is in effect.
NOTE: ASP Associate Members automatically receive free updates
and do not need to apply for the Vendor Update Program. This is
yet another advantage to being an ASP Associate Member.
The Vendor Update Program is only intended to help us cover our
expenses in those cases where a vendor desires to obtain the
program directly from us. If you have other standard ways to
obtain programs, then you may prefer not to use our Vendor Update
