we are pleased to
announce the release of the new version 4.2
is free for all the Customers who bought
a standard 4.x license, since 2003. If you previously
bought a 3.2 license, obtaining a free upgrade to the 4.0
version at a later time, now you can upgrade it to the
4.2 version by purchasing an upgrade license. http://www.printfil.com/eprice.htm
If on your PC the 4.1
version is already installed, you don't need to
upgrade your license keys. Simply install the update
over the previous version, even without uninstalling it.
If the AutoUpdate system is active, the upgrade will be
totally automated and guided, even if you are still using
the old 4.0 version.
new "Personal Edition"
License is on sale for private - non commercial -
use, at a lowered price. http://www.printfil.com/eprice.htm
The Personal Edition does not have any functional
limit when compared to the standard version, but,
once registered, the software must be activated
on the PC, so an internet connection is required
within 30 days from the initial registration.
