vrf Perpetual License change

Question asked by VRFuser on Sep 22, 2002
Sorry for the delay in responding. Martin's question really needs to be addressed by Product Marketing, not Support.

We've found the right person in Marketing to answer it, and you should see a response in the vrf early this week.

Best Regards,


Scott and Nicole
