    Hi All

    Since the question came up about the difference in purchase price with Raxco, I thought I'd call them.

    1) CD vs Download. Yes the price difference is real. It is based on the huge quantify the resellers buy. The same support that comes with purchaseing the license from Raxco also comes with the CD purchase. The difference is ordering the CD of course you pay shipping, and also have to wait. Likewise if you wanted the extended download rights and extended support you have to buy them if you buy the CD just like you would if you download from Raxco.

    2) Extended Download and maintenance package. I commented on this in a post somewhere without realizing I'd actually put the package on a power pack I purchased. You all might think I am nuts but given the support I've gotten from Raxco I don't mind giving them a few bucks to help support their support effort. I called to inquiring about putting the whole package of 4 licenses I have under one umbrella and ended up with a coupon that made the 2 year plan on 4 licenses cheaper then 1 year on 2 licenses.

    I continue to maintain Raxco is a class act with class act software.

    Pete

    That's great info to know Peter ! I have 6 licenses in all now (and 6 of FD-ISR), and I wondered if I could do something like that. I'll give them a call !

    P.S. Well scratch that, they close at 5:30 Eastern US time, so I'll just email sales@raxco.com
