MetaVR Product Maintenance and Technical Support
MetaVR provides technical support and maintenance for the current version of its software for one (1) year from either the acceptance of the Purchase Order for the software or the transmission of the long term authentication license. The one (1) year period of active software maintenance and technical support of the purchased product and materials begins upon your receipt of the permanent unlock code no later than twenty-four (24) months from the initial acceptance of the Purchase Order.
MetaVR makes available use of the software during the purchasing cycle, by providing you a temporary unlock code for the license(s) involved. The temporary date coincides with the expected completion of the purchasing cycle. Upon request, MetaVR will provide a long term authentication license in the form of an unlock code when the amounts associated with the license of the software product and any other services or materials identified in the Purchase Order, are paid in full.

Earlier software versions and discontinued maintenance and support
With the release of MetaVR VRSG version 6.3, we no longer sell or distribute earlier versions of VRSG. We no longer provide maintenance and technical support for VRSG versions 3 and 4, or for the retired software products WorldPerfect™ and Metadesic™ Compiler. The warranty period for the older versions of these software products has expired.
In order to receive maintenance and technical support for any MetaVR software product, you must have active software maintenance for your license(s). Customers of the retired terrain generation products WorldPerfect and Metadesic Compiler must upgrade to the current version of MetaVR’s Terrain Tools for ArcGIS software with the purchase of active software maintenance.
