Technical Support

Make Sure You are Up-to-Date

IES regularly updates products to correct and improve products. Each product displays its 'build' number, like 1.00.0002 in the title bar or 'About' box. 

The downloads page shows build numbers and 'Release Notes' listing changes.

Premium Telephone Support

(Please note: NOBODY does this! Only 30% of customers ever use technical support, only 5% regularly.)

IES offers premium telephone support services for $50/month, purchased for 1-year in advance ($600/year).  This fee covers support for a single person.  You will receive a support number to call for more immediate assistance.  Keep in mind that without project files and other specific information and data (sent via email) it is often very difficult to understand or diagnose complex issues or problems.
