The programs typically expire on the last day of the calendar year.
If you already use any SOS programs, are a current client, but did not receive the annual renewal notice, contact your Ryder Scott representative to obtain the refresher password then run the license file refresher. This is the fastest way to keep expiring versions running.
We will consider replacing expired programs for non-clients depending on circumstances. Ryder Scott reserves the right to renew program licenses or to let them expire at its sole discretion.
Two steps for obtaining the SOS software:
Frequently Asked Questions
Ryder Scott frequently releases upgrades to its SOS suite, but to avoid unwanted e-mails, we only send notices to users for urgent or critical upgrades.
If you simply wish to upgrade to the current version, installing an update over a pre-existing version of an SOS program will gracefully replace the older version, but this step cannot be reversed. You can also install and test the current version while keeping the older version. The best way to do this is to simply change the name of the folder where the SOS program is already installed, then follow the traditional install directions using the new installer. When the new installer sees that the standard installation directory is missing, it will load the new version to that location.
Support and Training
SOS programs have varying levels of documentation and support. Snap and ProCast have high-quality, Windows-based help and documentation, while Forecast, PTA, and Tank have extensive help files but more limited documentation.
Fee-based support for the programs is available from Ryder Scott and third parties. Current Ryder Scott clients with simple requests receive free support, but any non-clients can expect to be charged hourly fees for SOS program support. We offer custom fee-based training for larger clients. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Use of Data from Submission Form
Ryder Scott will use information from the submission form to send program updates to users via e-mail. In some cases, Ryder Scott will use the form to send hard-copy or electronic newsletters to SOS users. Please click on Newsletters to review the Reservoir Solutions newsletters. Those wishing to be taken off the e-mail or mailing list for the publication need only to respond via e-mail to email@example.com with that request. Ryder Scott will immediately remove those users from the mailing list.
