1. How do I download Ubercode?
Go to the downloads page and follow the instructions there. You
have to download and install Ubercode before writing any programs.
2. How long does the download take?
The download is about 15 MB. This takes between 60 and 120 minutes depending on your modem. It
will be much faster (under 10 minutes) if you have broadband. If you have problems with the
download and would prefer a copy to be emailed or posted to you, please contact us.
3. What happens when the Trial Pack expires?
The Trial Pack is a fully working trial copy, allowing you to evaluate Ubercode at no risk for
30 days (the actual number of days may be slightly more than this, depending on the date of the
Trial Pack and the date of the download, but it will be at least 30 days). The expiry date of the
Trial Pack is shown in the Help - About dialog in the Developer Environment.
When the Trial Pack expires, you have several options:
- Go to the secure order form and buy a Licenced Package (Standard Pack
or Professional Pack). These packages are competitively priced and include Printed Manuals, CDs and
quality packaging, and they do not expire.
- If you still have questions about Ubercode, go to the bottom of the sales page and follow the links to ask more questions.
- Go to downloads and download a newer Trial Package. Uninstall the
old Trial Package and re-install the new Trial Package. This will keep any classes you have already
- After the Expiry Date you should remove the old Trial Package. Source files and dialogs written
by you are left on your computer when Ubercode is uninstalled. These programs remain your property
and are fully compatible with Licenced copies of Ubercode.
