    Expensive software and surprised if they are gone. Might be bad for the Apple runners if the next OS update kills it off (32 > 64 bit.).

    I have it in Windows 10, but don't know if it will soon crash from its licensing check or what. They had an odd TAN unlock key setup that was also time-driven at times where I'd have to contact them to get a new TAN key to unlock it. Dunno now.

    And so goes the color management printing business.... :(

    I haven't heard anything yet either, but I bought mine off the USA supplier near San Diego, CA (I think? Been a while since I bought 3 packages of it.). I did have issues with the TAN key a while back and had to deal with Germany which took a while (Reminded me of the Spyder serial mess where their hardware updates on installing, and then the enclosed serial does not work!). Germany gave me temporary (trial ) codes, given some TAN licensing key issues for the permanent one, so I don't know what will become of it.

    It's still working on my Windows 10 so far. Hope it remains that way if they do go out of business. Have to go and see what the Luminous Landscape guys are saying....
