iGridd Applet - FAQ

Q: I paid for my subscription but I still get the notification "iGridd Applet requires subscription". Why does it happen?
A: You need to visit the Subscription Options page to activate your account. If your account is still not active - contact griddlers_team.
Q: How do I resubscribe?
A: Use the same buttons in the Subscription page.
You don't need to wait until your existing subscription ends. Subscription renewal can be done in any time. The system remembers the last valid date of your subscription and adds the new period of time to it.
Q: If I click on the link to open the iGridd Applet, I get the notification: "Do you want to install this software?" Why is this?
A: This happens because you don't have the correct Java version installed. The system helps you to download it, either automatically or via the Java website.
