Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


Upgrade Policy

The Utility Factory has a generous, simple and clear upgrade policy as outlined below.

In summary, you are coved for all minor updates and major upgrades for one year or until the next major upgrade is released - whichever is longer.

Current Version

When a license is purchased it is good for the current major version, e.g. 1.x, 2.x, 3.x etc, forever.

Interim releases

All point releases for that version are free, e.g. 2.1, 2.2, 2.3.

New major versions

If a major version, e.g. 2.0, 3.0 etc., is released within one year of your purchase it and all its point releases are free.

There is a reasonable upgrade charge for any major version that is released more than one year after you purchase FileBoss.
