Question

Hello. For quite a long, long time, I've been developing a program and the heart of the program is version 2.3.0.17 of your ActiveGantt control. I know it is now obsolete. I have been in contact with the Source Code Store and we discussed the newer versions and it became clear that the new version was so completely new that I should stick with the old one if I ever wanted to finish my project. I mean you really did overhaul the object model of the component and I'm sure it's better, but I can't afford the time to learn the new one.

I'm writing my program in Visual Studio and keep backups of everything I do. But if my hard drive were to crash, I would have to reconstruct my development environment on a new machine. And I don't have a backup copy of what it would take to reinstall the Gantt control on a new machine. As a registered owner of your control, I have to ask if you can allow me to download the original zip file of the old control in case of the inevitable day that I have to reconstitute my development environment. Hard drives eventually crash, and when mine does, I'm a dead duck regarding your component.

I hope you understand my concern. We're talking years of development down the drain if I can't get a copy of your old Gantt control onto a machine so Visual Studio can reference it. It's not that I'm unwilling to buy a copy of the new one. It's the amount of code I'd need to rewrite to use it that frightens me.

Answer

Answer:

We will send you a copy of ActiveGanttVB that is as close to 2.3.0.17 as possible. Unfortunately we can't keep backups of every possible release.
