Help with Ordering OSS
Q1: How does the OSS ordering work?
A1: When you place an order for OSS, a license key is sent to you via email.
There is no CD or Floppy disk for this product as everything is handled
electronically. The email will contain all the instructions to set up the
permanant license key. Note: you must first install the DEMO OSS distribution.
Q2: If I've already downloaded the Demo version of OSS, will I get or
need any more software for my permanant license?
A2: If you've already installed the Demo version of OSS, then you've got
all the drivers you need. The only difference in purchasing the OSS license
is that the OSS license will lift the 4 month "UNREGISTERED MODE" restrictions. The software you have is the full live software.
Q3: If I need to purchase the OSS license via a purchase order or money
order or cheque, what do I need to do?
A3: You still need to fill out the order form completely and select the
appropriate method of payment. Your license key will only be emailed to
you upon receipt of your PO or cheque. See the Order page for contact info.
Q4: If I lose my license key, what do I do?
A4: In general we will only send your license key free of charge if you
lose your license email/key within 30 days of your purchase. After that,
there is a $5.00 fee for lost licenses. We do strongly recommend that
you backup the license to floppy for safe-keeping.
Q5: What happened to lowlevel driver options that were available in the past?
A5: With OSS v3.99.2a we did away with lowlevel driver options. The price has increased a bit but the end result is that if you have any number of different devices, one license key will be used to control all the devices. The optional license is need you have a professional audio device.
The new approach makes it simple for customers to just install OSS and get a license key without having to know what sound card they have. Customers with existing licenses should see no problems with the new drivers and the new licensing menachisms. Customers with existing OSS licenses should have no problems adding additiona devices and getting them configured - no additional payment is necessary.
