buying the dvd


Recommended Posts

Hello Tony,


Thank you for the question.  When you purchase Chief Architect you always get set up with download access to the software.  The download access is guaranteed for the first year or as long as you have Support & Software Assurance (SSA).  It is always a good idea to have a long term backup copy of the program installation file.  You can save the download to a disk or back up hard drive yourself or you can order the back up disk which currently costs $14.95 including shipping.


I hope this helps.  Feel free to email sales if you have any questions at or call 208-292-3400.


Kind regards,



Chief Architect Software

if you get the DVD and the Hardware Lock

you then have total independence from CA


CA could go out of business and you can still run Chief


at least until you upgrade your PC past the point of usability in future years


I also wonder if CA will ever disable software locks for much older versions
