Premium support

Premium support entitles you to additional development and programming assistance, up to the number of hours that were included with your license purchase. You can use premium support for other issues as well, for example detailed help with your installer project, custom DLL programming, or specific advice about how to install your application or deal with incompatibilities such as UAC issues.

(In contrast, our free technical support is limited to small incidents of 5-10 minutes each, in which we explain to you how to achieve certain installation tasks, but leave it to you to actually integrate those tasks in your own InstallMate project.)

Note: After your premium support allowance runs out, you are still entitled to our (free) standard support. You can also buy additional premium support hours if required; see Ordering a license, above.

Entering your InstallMate 9 registration certificate

Once you have your new InstallMate 9 registration certificate, you can register your copy of InstallMate 9 as follows.

  1. If you haven't done so already, download and install InstallMate 9 on your system. You can install InstallMate 9 on the same computer as Tarma QuickInstall 2, Tarma ExpertInstall 3, Tarma Installer 5, and InstallMate 7; the programs are independent.
  2. Start InstallMate 9.
  3. On the main menu bar, choose Help > Register... This opens the License registration dialog box. You can also click the Register... link in the navigation panel on the left.
  4. Copy the registration certificate from the email message to the Windows clipboard. Be sure to copy all lines, starting with the ----BEGIN TARMA CERTIFICATE----- line and ending with ----END TARMA CERTIFICATE----- (inclusive).
  5. Paste the certificate in the Registration certificate field in the License registration dialog box that you opened in step 3.
  6. Click Register.
  7. If all went well, you will see a confirmation dialog box. If there is a problem, an error message will appear instead; retry the procedure and be careful to include the entire certificate.

Tip: In step 4 above, copy the registration certificate from a plain text email window. Do NOT copy from an HTML, Rich Text, or similar formatted email window; this introduces formatting codes that confuse the registration process. All our registration email messages are in plain text format, so normally this shouldn't be a problem.
