PROGRAM UPDATES:  Trilogy Design Update Policy

Trilogy Design routinely issues maintenance updates that are free to users of the Parts&Vendors program.  Bugs are fixed as discovered and new operational features or other refinements are added at Trilogy Design's option.  See the links on each version page for descriptions of changes made to each release of the program.
The original Setup program (CD or full download) plus the latest update constitute the current version of the program.  Intermediate updates can be discarded. Installing an update preserves existing user settings; a full reinstall does not.

Data recovery services:
PK Solutions    If you ever make use of this service for a P&V data file, be sure to include a copy of pv3data._db, pv4data._db, pv5data._db, or pv6data._db which can be found in your \pv3, \pv4 \pv5 or \pv6 program folder. 
An even better idea is to back-up your data file daily.
