PxPlus OS Ports
PxPlus is available for a number of operating systems. Generally we provide versions for the most popular, currently available, operating systems based on client feedback. As the number of operating systems and versions continue to swell, we must limit the number of systems we supply and the time frame for which we provide versions for these operating systems.
While we strive to make sure we provide builds for each operating system our clients require, we neither guarantee the availability of a build for any operating system nor guarantee we will continue to provide builds for operating systems that we may have provided for in the past.
Unsupported Operating Systems
In general, in the case of operating systems for which the manufacturer/supplier provides support and for which we have done a port, we will usually provide new versions of PxPlus for as long as the manufacturer/supplier provides new features and actively supports the operating system. Once an operating system enters its end-of-life cycle, ports of PxPlus may no longer be provided unless the systems are found to be compatible with newer OS versions. In this case we may continue to provide a port beyond its normal end-of-life time frame.
Should a client require a build for an operating system that we do not supply they may contact us to see if it could be provided. Due to changes in the product and limitations of older (or newer) operating systems, it may not be possible to provide a version of PxPlus for specific systems. If it is possible, PVX Plus Technologies, at its own discretion, may offer to provide a port for a fee. The fee charged will be based on the cost to prepare the port (minimum $250).
In some instances we may not know if a port is possible, in which case the client may be asked to pay for the research into the viability of a port. This charge would not be refundable should we find a port is not feasible or cost excessive.
OS Support and CCP Maintenance
CCP Maintenance is not tied to support for a specific operating system. CCP Maintenance only covers the right of the user to have access to newer versions of the software on whatever ports we have made it available.
For example, if you were running PxPlus on Windows 98, paying maintenance for a Windows version of PxPlus neither guarantees that all future versions of PxPlus will run on Windows 98 nor does it guarantee that a client will not be required to upgrade his Windows 98 to a more recent version of Windows in order to run the most recent version of PxPlus.
CCP Maintenance only guarantees that the user will have access to the newest PxPlus versions on whatever platforms we supply.
Liability for Lack of OS Support
As stated in the PVX Plus Technologies license agreement, PVX Plus Technologies is not liable for any cost related to the termination or failure to support specific operating systems.
