Why do I only buy an activation key?

You can dowload the Chord Scale Generator for free and are allowed to use the test version as long as you want. However, the test version allows only a limited range of operations. In order to activate the full version of the Chord Scale Generator with the the whole range of operations you need an activation key that you can buy on this website. The purchase of an activation key means not the purchase of the software (which you could already download) but the possibility to activate the full version.
Note: In order to activate the full version of the Chord Scale Generator on the computer you want to use it on, you need to have internet access for a short time.

What does the abbreviation 1.x stand for?

Currently, you can download the Chord Scale Generator in version 1.3. However, the activation key which you can purchase on this website is also valid for all minor releases that might be developed in the future (such as 1.4, 1.5, ...). New minor releases will be made accessible via (automatical) program updates.
However, if any major releases (such as 2.0, 3.0, ...) should be developed, a small upgrade fee might be charged.

How can I determine whether my operating system is 64-bit compatible?

Windows: In order to determine whether a 32- or 64-bit version of your Windows system is running, simply follow the instructions described in the Microsoft Support Pages.

Linux: To determine the bit count under Linux use the following command:

uname -a

In case of a 64-bit platform the result of the command will contain 'x86_64' or 'ia64', respectively.
