Howdy netters,

In a previous post, a fellow netter had mentioned that the cut-off
date for free SDK 3.1 upgrade is Dec 1990 i.e. if you bought your
SDK 3.0 after Dec 1990, you can get a free upgrade.

When I called Microsoft, I was told that the cut-off date is Jan 15, 1992.

Can someone please verify the actual cut-off date?

Just a note for those who are thinking of updating to the win 3.1 SDK:

Single monitor CodeView is broken and CV/1 does not work with
3.1 yet. In other words you you NEED 2 monitors to debug with
the 3.1 SDK

I am reading this directly from the Microsoft Canada Update Form for
Windows Software Development Kit 3.1 ...

Section 2 is the cost calculation section. Three check boxes exist.

1. Windows SDK 3.0 Purchased after Dec 31, 1990 is N/C.

2. Windows SDK (any version) purchased before Dec 31, 1990 is $179
(Canadian of course.)

3. Windows 3.1 Full Product, includes dual disks is $449.

If you are claiming a free or discounted update, you must include:

- a copy of your dated sales receipt

- payment by cheque/money order or credit card

- the inside title page from your manual (copyright notice on
back) or the original program disk or copy of original
receipt if ordering an MLP update (whatever that is)

Microsoft made it very clear that these must be ordered by mail as
they need the proof of ownership and date purchased.

This setup may be specific to Canada.

In what way is the single monitor CodeView broken?

Certainly the copy I have here from the Beta 3 SDK is fine with the generic
VGA and SVGA drivers. It did not work correctly with the Windows 3.0 Tseng
ET4000 256-colour driver; haven't tried with the Windows 3.1 version of
these.

In most cases, though, I prefer to use Multiscope: it does have one or two
mind-bogglingly annoying bugs, but most of the time they don't get in
my way.

I see. In that case, I have been having drug flashbacks for the
past two weeks? And all those single-screen, all-within-windows
debugging sessions I've been doing through CVW/1 *really* haven't
been happening?

I love the net...so much real, useful, factual information on it.

I find myself having to take exception to your remark. One the whole,
the people I have interacted with and the information I have received
over the net have been of the highest quality. But, as you help to make
clear to everyone, there are exceptions.

Looks like for the free update from SDK 3.0 to SDK 3.1, the
product (SDK 3.0) should have been bought after

Dec 1990 (Canada)
Jan 15, 1992 (USA)

Any comments?

That's Dec 31, 1990 in Canada.

^^^^
Sanity check, please...that's '1990', as in twelve and 1/2 months before the
cutoff date in the States?
