Support Services and Products
The Support Desk provides a bridge to our support technical representatives. Designed for our existing users with a current Technology Upgrade Contract (TUC), the Support Desk is available to answer technical queries, register bugs and arrange shipment of new versions. In addition the Support area of the site contains downloads of upgrades, fix releases and new versions. Details of joining or rejoining the TUC program or other information can be obtained from your sales representative.
User communication with the Support Desk is important to us part of our business. The complexity of ways in which our products can be used means that it is almost impossible to visualize every scenario in which they will be used. We value any feedback you supply about problems or anomalies that you encounter, or perhaps even praise or a suggested enhancement support feedback

Experimental versions may be delivered as a setup or in files release format. It is NOT recommended to release experimental versions for production.
Do I need a new license?
Version updates of programs may require a license update. If your license is under a current valid TUC (Technology Upgrade) contract then you will automatically be entitled to this license and may upgrade as part of the service.
If you want to upgrade and do not have a TUC contract please contact the Sales Desk for further details.
Is Licensing different between Versions?
Macrovision Eagle supports combined version licensing. This means if you have a license enabled to run Eagle FlexNET V15 for example then you can also run all previous Eagle FlexNET enabled versions using the same license.
What do I need to know about model file compatibility between Versions?
V15 Can read all previous model versions (skips Nurbs entities when present) and can write V15 models.
V14 Eagle version 14.9 is capable of loading all previous Eagle model formats. This OEM release (V14.2.x) NURBS are skipped in non NURBS versions.
