Note the spelling of Micro Focus. I know they are keen on you getting it right :-)

Of course, their website is Use [URL] BBCode for External Links, with various ways to obtain support.

I'm surprised that if you are purchasing the upgrade, no-one thought to ask Micro Focus what was needed beforehand. They'll be more than happy to help. You pay for "support" after all, so it is a good thing to use it when you need it.
