VSim and VORPAL Support Policy

Tech-X generally sells VSim capable of running on Windows and OS X operating systems that have not reached end of life at the time of the release of VSim and on supported Linux operating systems released within the 5 years prior to the release date of VSim. The particular operating systems are listed below. Tech-X will update a major version N of VSim to be able to run on operating systems that are subsequently released up until the release of the second following (N + 2) major release of VSim.

The VSim purchaser will receive the number of hours of support specified in his VSim license agreement. After the initial hours of support have been used, additional VSim product support is available at Tech-X consulting rates.

Tech-X will generally provide fixes for the current and previous major versions of VSim. Fixes or support for two or more major versions prior to the current version are available only through Tech-X consulting services.
