For Fiscal Year 2016 (FY16), STARS pricing will remain unchanged. Since central funding is no longer available for software licensing, all commands were required to use local funds to renew their annual STARS software site licenses. Your annual license fee pays for 24/7 tech support and any product updates that may become available.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and to place your renewal order. Your STARS key file will be sent to you as an attachment via email. This key file (named headers.txt), will tell your currently installed copy of STARS that your software site license is paid up through FY16. To install this file, just copy it into the subdirectory where your winstars.exe program file is installed. Be sure that the attached file is named headers.txt so that it will overwrite and replace your existing file of the same name. Since the key file is encrypted, do not attempt to open or edit this file.
