Labcenter operate a maintenance contract for the Proteus Design Suite which we call the Update Service Contract. The purpose of the Update Service Contract (USC) is to allow you to receive all feature enhancements and bug fixes of the Proteus software over the period for which the USC is valid while providing a fair and reasonable remuneration to ourselves for our continued development and maintenance of the software.
Note that differs from a traditional maintenance contract offered by most software vendors as all software releases (including major versions) are included in the price of the Update Service Contract.
In general terms the Update Service Contract works as follows:
You can tell which version of the software you have by looking at the bottom left of the Proteus home page (Version 8 or higher) or by selecting the About ISIS or About ARES option from on the Help menu. Software updates themselves are integrated into the News Panel of the Proteus 8 Home Page. Notification of updates will appear in the news and information of the home page and you can activate the download and installation of the new software release directly.
If you are unable to download the update then you may need to upgrade your software package. For more recent software a renew online button will be available from the home page or, for older software packages, please contact Labcenter or your local distributor for more information and a quotation.
You can find details of the current version of the software here.
