Use and distribution of our software trial versions

Download of trial versions to your computer and how to unlock them

On our website we present the programs and databases developed by us with detailed descriptions. All programs and databases can be easily and conveniently downloaded as trial versions to your computer.
After downloading, you will have the opportunity to install and then extensively test our programs and databases. The initially as a test program installed software is slightly limited in the range of functions and in the number of performable operations. If the software match your requirements, you can then purchase a license for it. Together with the license activation parameters for unlocking are delivered. You do not have to uninstall the installed trial version. By entering the activation parameters in the start window of the program, you can switch from the restricted trial version to the unrestricted full version. You can then use the program to the full extent.

What are ASP and PAD?

The trial versions of the programs and databases featured on our website comply with the requirements of the major shareware associations:
link_ex Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP)

For purpose of the publication and distribution of trial programs, the shareware associations have developed the PAD (Portable Application Description) standard. PAD is an XML format for the standardized description of the software by the manufacturer. All information about our programs and databases are available in such PAD files. At the following link you can view and download the PAD files:

What is a trial program?

Be honest! How legal is your software?

Mal ehrlich... The test version of a program (shareware) is given by the author of the program for free. The test version may be handed to third parties without restriction. Compared to the full version of the program the test version is limited in time or or in features. Thereby the user gets the opportunity to try the software and compare it with other software products without having to purchase it. Should it come to a purchasing decision after testing, one orders the licensed full version of the software at the distribution company and pays a reasonable price. Affordable prices can be offered only by this type of distribution, because the time-consuming and expensive advertising in the print media is omitted.

Stop piracy At this point, our thanks are given to the operators of many on the internet existing link_in shareware archives, because they actively support the shareware idea and help in spreading the trial versions of many good programs.

Shareware products need not necessarily worse than other promoted products. Instead smaller applications or products, which appeal only to a small group of users, get a real market opportunity by the shareware idea.

With shareware you do not buy a pig in a poke!

Trial version and full version

ASP-Logo In conformity with the statute of ASP, the trial versions of our software are functionally limited in no way. After invoking the program only a message box with the ability to print an order form or to do an online order is shown. However, the programs and databases are either by the count of program runs or by the number of data records reasonable limited. The results obtained using the trial version can be processed further with the purchased full version. The trial version of an program can be transferred to the full version easily by entering an activation code. Reinstalling the application is not required.

The use of the trial version of a programs or a databases is not bound by any obligations. If you like to use the software after testing furthermore, a licensed full version must be purchased.

Facilitate the shareware idea!
Purchase the licensed full version!

Sharing of trial programs

The trial versions of the presented programs and databases may be copied and distributed without restriction. Applying the test programs on CD-ROM and other media as well as providing for download in the Internet or other data networks is expressly permitted. The programs may also be sold as part of a shareware collection (e.g. on CD-ROM) for a usual low charge. Licensed full versions or acquired activation codes naturally may not be passed on!
