Use and distribution of the trial versions of our programs

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

On our website we present the geodetic programs developed by us with detailed descriptions. All programs can be downloaded as trial versions to your computer.
After downloading, you will have the opportunity to install and then extensively test our programs. The software initially installed as a test program has a reduced range of functionality. However, the main tasks of the software are functional in the test version. If the software match your requirements, you can then purchase a license from KilletSoft. Together with the license an unlock code is delivered. You do not have to uninstall the installed trial version. By entering the unlock code 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 is a PAD file?

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

What is a trial program?

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. Stop piracy Compared to the full version of the program the test version is limited in time 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 for the software can be offered only by this type of distribution, because the time-consuming and expensive advertising in the print media is omitted.

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.

Trial version and full version

In accordance with the PAD standard, the test versions of our geodetic software are limited to a reasonable level of functionality, but work for the core tasks. After invoking the program a message box with the ability to print an order form or to do an online order is shown. 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 results obtained using the trial version can be processed further with the purchased full version.
The use of the trial version of one of our geodetic programs is not bound to any obligations. If you like to use the software after testing furthermore, a licensed full version must be purchased.

Sharing of trial programs

The trial versions of the presented programs may be copied and distributed without restriction. Applying the test programs on data media as well as providing for download in the Internet or other data networks is expressly permitted. Licensed full versions or acquired activation codes naturally may not be passed on!
