Policy & ProceduresPolicy & Procedures
Every installation of Thoroughbred software requires a supporting license. Our software license allows our business partners to develop applications based on Thoroughbred software development products and pass them onward.
We operate a system of security-coded activation keys in order to protect against unlicensed operation of our software. You can take advantage of this feature in your own applications protecting them as well. We ship our products with a 30 day temporary key to allow time for installation and approval. On expiration, the software will operate in a limited capacity. Prior to expiration, you should obtain a unique activation key from Thoroughbred.
Activation keys can be obtained directly over the internet, or this web site (www.tbred.com) or by calling Thoroughbred.
Value Added Reseller Terms
As a Value Added Reseller, a discount structure is agreed upon. You are entitled to the discounts described in that structure on purchases of Thoroughbred software that you make. There are no minimum purchase or volume commitments that you must make.

Select the Operating System and Hardware Platform

Occasionally, to ensure compatibility with the newest releases, it is possible that the most recent versions of Thoroughbred may not work with a version of a specific operating system.
To select the correct platform, you need to identify the specific CPU and the version of the manufacturer's operating system.
To accurately determine this information, refer to the label on the installation media of your operating system or execute the UNIX command (uname -a) at the system prompt. For additional information, refer to your UNIX OS manual or type (man uname) at the prompt for the on-line manual.
