*** If your modeling tool stops responding, the executable tools can be used for analyzing and submitting the status of the process. To report an issue using an executable file, start the reportissue.exe file, located in <modeling tool installation directory>\bin.

Support Period

During the support period covered by our SA, you can also report any software problems or errors. If reported, and reproducible, issue in the software exists, and the issue significantly impacts the usability of the software, No Magic agrees to make reasonable efforts to provide a usable workaround solution or to correct the problem in an upcoming maintenance release or update.

End-of-Life Policy

The end of life policy depends on the release type in use: Long-Term Releases (LTR) or Future Releases (FR).

The Long-Term Releases (LTR) are extremely reliable and rock-solid. No Magic provides guaranteed support (including service packs and private patches) until the next Long-Term Release is released, approximately every two years. Longer-term support, of up to five years, for a Long-Term Release, is available for an additional charge. For more information about the Long-Term Releases, see http://www.nomagic.com/support/long-term-releases.html

Support for Feature Releases (FR) discontinues when the next Feature Release is released. Therefore, bug fixes for old Feature Releases (FR) are unavailable.


Providing Patches

We support and provide patches only for the users who have Software Assurance contracts (SA) on their purchased products, so please make sure that you are covered.


Public service packs are released primarily for the newest versions. As we understand that switching from one version to another can take some time, in the case of significant issues, we provide service packs, or private patches, for up to one-year-old versions, when applicable.

We always strongly recommend using the newest version because it contains all newest fixes, usability features, new capabilities, and support for standards and technologies.
