I just purchased Vehicle Manager.
When will I receive my license key?
How do I backup
the Vehicle Manager database?
License keys are sent to the email address you used during
checkout usually within 3 minutes of your purchase confirmation.
However, some email notifications may get routed to your bulk or junk
mail folder. If you haven't received your license key in your
email inbox within 30 minutes, be sure to check your bulk or junk mail
folder, and if it still hasn't arrived, contact customer service to request
to have your license key resent.
Why doesn't the license key I
just received work?
Vehicle Manager comes in two different editions, and the license
key you purchased must match the edition that you're entering it in.
For example, a license key for the "Fleet Edition" will not work in the
"Fleet Edition For Networks". You can check to see which edition you have installed
by opening Vehicle Manager and reading the caption at the very top of
the window. If it doesn't match the edition of the license key
that you purchased, download and install the matching edition
Select the menu item: File --> Backup...
will create a compressed backup file containing all of your vehicle
maintenance data in a single file with extension .vbk. You may
save the backup file to your computer or to a flash drive. If
you would like to save it to a CD, first save the backup file to your
computer, then copy it to CD. To restore the data from this file,
use the menu option File --> Restore...

Can Vehicle Manager

Yes, Vehicle Manager has red, yellow, green
status indicators next to each vehicle
in the vehicle list, and a reminder window displays upcoming service
due when you open the program. You may also print the "Service
Reminders" report for a complete list of service due.
These reminders are all based on the Service Schedule which you can
set up for each vehicle. You can specify the schedule
frequency in calendar time as well as distance or hours.
How long is the Vehicle Manager license valid?
