Notes on Option to Remotely Upgrade:

1.If upgrading, you have the option of remotely upgrading your existing trial copy of Exl-Plan Basic to fully-operational, in addition to securing a separate fully-operational copy.
2.If the Code Number (comprising unique 11-13 digit number and version details) at the top right-hand corner of the Front worksheet of Exl-Plan is quoted when upgrading, your trial  copy of Exl-Plan can be remotely upgraded using an Unlock Code Number. This means that you can immediately enter meaningful data into the trial copy which can be subsequently upgraded to a fully-operational version. This saves further downloading and the re-entry of assumptions.
3.Once an Unlock Code Number has been received, your trial copy should be reloaded and the Unlock Code entered via *Exl-Plan Help > Enter Unlock Code Number. This copy of Exl-Plan becomes your main file. During the unlocking process, a working copy (WORKPLAN.XLS) will be automatically created for day-to-day use. Note that the Unlock Code will not work with any other downloaded Exl-Plan files.

Upgrading from Trial Copy to Fully-Operational Copy of Exl-Plan Basic

The main method of upgrading is to use an e-commerce service at PlanWare - Invest-Tech's website at <http://www.planware.org/exlupgr.htm> to allow you to download a fully-operational copy of Exl-Plan immediately after your payment has been authorized. If you supplied a Code Number when ordering, you'll also be sent an Unlock Code via email from PlanWare. You should retain the downloaded file carefully as your master/backup copy.

Alternative methods of upgrading are as follows:

1.Complete the Upgrade Form in the Upgrade worksheet within Exl-Plan and copy/paste it into an email to <sales@planware.org> or, more securely, print/fax it to PlanWare - Invest-Tech Limited at +353-1-2834083. This form incorporates your Code Number for remote upgrading, so you'll be sent an Unlock Code as soon as your payment has been cleared.
2.Use the fax form at <http://www.planware.org/exlfax.htm> or phone +353-1-2834083 to upgrade.

If you use one of these alternative methods, you'll be sent a backup copy by email or Priority Airmail.
