Support Center

Welcome to the Lindersoft Support Center. We are committed to helping you maximize your investment in Lindersoft products by combining processes, products, and people to provide you with the most timely, accurate assistance possible. Our goal is to be a premier provider of technical support and service to all of our customers.

We provide full service engineering ranging from answering questions to developing, creating, and providing updates to Lindersoft products. For fastest service, please provide your Serial Number (if available) in correspondence. We offer pre-sales support while you evaluate our products.


All SetupBuilder products have a pre-determined commercial lifetime. In order to provide the highest quality products and support to our customers, each product is developed utilizing a product lifecycle methodology, which includes an End-of-Life (EOL) phase.

The SetupBuilder product EOL policy is to support the current release for up to three (3) months by default. After this time, Lindersoft's Product Development and Engineering organizations cease active development and support of that software release. Lindersoft does not create or make available maintenance releases or patches for software that has reached the EOL milestone.

During the EOL phase, Lindersoft will continue to investigate, troubleshoot, and characterize issues in an attempt to provide solutions and workarounds using the production releases. If a solution cannot be found using software that has reached the EOL milestone, Lindersoft Customer Advocacy will require that the system be updated with a more recent software release.

Lindersoft offers technical support for SetupBuilder for a specified amount of time. Once a product enters end-of-life status, Lindersoft will be unable to provide technical support, download links, service packs or updates for that version of the SetupBuilder software and any add-on modules for that version of the software.
