I bought your old utility. Do I need to pay full price for this upgrade?
If you have a valid license to any legacy Peltier Tech utilities, you are entitled to a discount. Email Peltier Tech and ask for a coupon code to apply at checkout. If you have already licensed the new utility at the regular price, email Peltier Tech and request a rebate.
My company wants to license the utility for the whole office. Can we get a bulk discount?
Of course. Peltier Tech offers bulk discounts starting with two licenses according to this schedule:
These discounts are automatically applied to your entire order when you enter the quantity in the shopping cart. If you need more licenses, email Peltier Tech for a custom quote.
Can I install the utility on my other computers?
If you have a valid user licence, you may install the utility on up to two computers, provided you are the primary user of the utility on both computers. This covers a desktop computer in your office plus a laptop for traveling, for example, or a computer in your office and another in your lab, or a work computer and a home computer.
Can I install the utility on my co-worker's utility?
No. Every user requires their own valid user license. You cannot install the utility on someone else's computer unless they also have a valid user license.
How can I modify a chart made using your utility?
The Peltier Tech Utility makes unique charts based on regular Excel charts, with custom data layouts and combinations of chart types. But these are Excel charts, so they can be copied and pasted, edited, and reformatted using the familiar Excel buttons and commands. Note that careless editing can cause the chart to lose its special appearance.
If I make a chart using your utility and send someone the workbook, do they need your utility to see the chart?
No. The Peltier Tech Utility makes unique charts based on regular Excel charts, with custom data layouts and combinations of chart types. As Excel charts, they can be copied and pasted, edited, and reformatted by anyone with Excel. Note that careless editing can cause the chart to lose its special appearance.
I discovered a bug. How should I report it?
Please email Peltier Tech, and provide full details about the bug. Tell us what you expected to happen, what you did to make it happen, and what happened instead. Indicate which versions of Windows and Excel you are using. If an error message appeared, please take a screen shot and attach it. The screen shot is more valuable than saying "Run-Time Error XYZ", because the run-time error descriptions are much more informative than the run-time error numbers. If your data isn't sensitive, or if you have an NDA for us to sign, please send a sample which produces the error.
Will you ever have my special chart type or feature?
Peltier Tech is always on the lookout for useful chart types and features to add to the utility. In fact, there is more in the development queue than is in the utility. But we will consider any reasonable suggestions. Note: an exploded, 3D, semitransparent donut chart is unreasonable.

If submitting a bug report, please include your versions of Excel and Windows and the exact error description (since the error numbers may be assigned to many issues), and if possible please provide the data you were using when the bug appeared and any intermediate output of the utility.
