There are several resources available to the user: The v4/v4pro manual is built right into the programme's HELP menu.

And there are tutorial movies available by request.

Contact Server installations will be encouraged to adopt reasonable yearly maintenance fees that will include phone and WEB/VNC support. The fee will also include free software updates during the year. Individual license owners do not have to purchase support but will be required to pay for any phone support and or updates as needed. Email remains free and should get you the timely response we’re known for.
