Technical Support Policy

Foxfire! technical support questions have generally fallen into two categories.

  • Getting Started questions: installation, upgrading, and general setup and configuration.
  • Advanced setup, configuration, querying, and reporting questions.

The technical support services available are designed to address these two categories of questions. The goal is that questions in category #1 should be answered promptly and at no charge.

Questions in category #2 involve designing complex reports, attempting to achieve the proper query results, data warehousing and partitioning schemes, two-pass reporting solutions, custom data item programming, etc., etc. These questions fall outside the bounds of basic technical support; and therefore, it is not possible to provide free support for these questions. Accurate answers to these types of questions generally requires a detailed understanding of the customers business and database. However, Micromega has a Foxfire! Consulting Services branch to accommodate these more advanced needs of customers.

Micromega Systems reserves the right to make adjustments to its technical support policy at any time, including discontinuation of such support.

The two support categories are outlined below.
