Thanks for your reply!
I didn't name the company in an attempt to avoid going off on a rant and getting sidetracked. This particular purchase has been one long headache...... I may post (somewhere) a more complete account of my experience, at some point in the future, but right now I'm just trying to resolve the current (latest) problem.
At any rate, I'm waiting on a reply from their Technical Support regarding this. I was just hoping for input from knowledgeable folks here to compare/contrast with whatever Technical Support's response is.
