Most software packages provide a limited warranty, a disclaimer of warranty, a limitation of liability, an End-User License Agreement (EULA) and other general provisions. The disclaimer of warranty will state the specifics of what is covered or not covered by the manufacturer's warranty. The limitation of liability limits the manufacturer's liability for damages incurred as a result of the use of the software. The other general provisions are what the manufacturer will provide for the user, as well as other applicable restrictions. Pertinent information should be printed on the software packaging indicating the amount of Random Access Memory (RAM) needed to install the program in the computer.
