  • Can I have your software for free?

  • Unfortunately we can not give our software out for free. While one of our primary goals is to continue to help service members by providing them resources and tools that allow them to work more efficiently, we can not accomplish this without the revenue from products like Counsel Quick. Programming hours aren’t free, customer service reps aren’t free, sales staff aren’t free, web development and hosting isn’t free, etc. full answer»

  • Why can I not update my software?

  • If your AFC software fails to update to the latest version by means of the automated updater program, (1) your installer version is somehow corrupted and the updater does not recognize it, (2) you have a very old version of the software and it is trying to download the update from the wrong server, or (3) the updater file itself is somehow corrupted on your hard drive. full answer»

  • How do I un-protect counseling statements in Word?

  • The example counseling statements in Counsel Quick are available in both Word and Lotus Forms Viewer formats. The Word forms are set up so that you can quickly jump though the applicable form fields to customize the counselings. If you find that you wish to edit information that is not in one of the default form fields, you can simply un-protect the document and do with it as you please. full answer»

  • File is missing – Counsel Quick could not access “setting.ini” (or other file)
