  • What is your License Policy?

    Single-User License:
    Installation of the program purchased under a Single-User Personal License is restricted to one single personal computer owned by or under control of the licensee plus one additional computer also owned by the licensee, e.g.: One computer at home and another at work, or a desktop at home and a laptop at home. However, at any given time only one copy of the purchased programs may be in use.

    For Personal Use: With Personal License, you can use the software in a business, academic, or government environment and you can only intend to use it for private or employment use and on exactly one computer per license. And you are preventing from selling, distributing or taking other ways to generate revenue directly with the output of the software.

    Multi-User License:
    The license permits you to install the program on the specific numbers of PCs entirely within your family (for personal use), non-profit organizations (such as schools, for academic use) and corporation within one particular specified location (e.g. office, for commercial use). Pricing varies according to the use. You may not give, transfer or sell multi-user-licensed copies of our product, nor include such copies in, or with products you sell or deliver to any third party users may access the software in any way that is convenient; for example, by accessing copies stored on local hard disks or copies stored on network servers.

    Enterprise License:
    Enterprise License is a type of software licensing agreement that grants the purchaser permission to use the software on a network on a single site, with an unlimited number of end users. Usually this type of license allows you to copy and use the software on multiple computers at one site and is more expensive than purchasing a single copy but less expensive than purchasing a copy for each computer at the site. There may be a maximum specified number of simultaneous end users.

  • I have purchased the download version, how can I get a CD as a backup?

    If you want to get a CD as a backup, please purchase the product with the CD again and then contact us. We will refund you for your previous purchase, for we don't sell the CD separately.

    Actually, if you have an Internet connection, you don't need to purchase the CD. You can download the latest program from our website at any time without any limitation. Purchasing the CD is totally a waste of money. The CD is just for those who don't have an Internet connection. And the CD doesn't contain the registration information.

    You can download the program, and then burn it with your registration information onto a CD as a backup by yourself, or save them together on your computer or some USB storage devices.

  • Is it secure to buy the discounted programs from the websites that are not yours?

    We have authorized our affiliates to sell our products, but we cannot ensure all the websites selling our programs are secure. Some people crack our products and sell them on the Internet. And we do not guarantee upgrades and support for any pirated software. If you find such a website, please provide us with the link for confirmation. There is no problem to purchase our products from our affiliates, but we recommend purchasing products from us directly for guaranteed upgrades and technical support.

  • What is "Extended Download Service"?

    The Extended Download Service is an optional service offered by the payment processor (RegNow or ShareIt) at an additional cost. Once you purchase this service, you'll be entitled to 1-year re-download service for the very version of the product you purchased, which means the service provider will a keep backup copy of the current version of the product you purchased, and allows you to download it from the link given to you at any time.

    Do I have to purchase this "Extended Download Service"? What if I don't purchase it?
    The short answer is NO. Once you purchase any product from BytesX Software, you can retrieve the download and registration information for the product you purchased for free. The only concern for you is that BytesX Software always keeps the latest version of the product on our server. If you only need to download the very version when you purchased at any time, then you can add this extended download service as a plus.[ ↑ Back to top ]

    Installation of the program purchased under a Single-User Personal License is restricted to one single personal computer owned by or under control of the licensee plus one additional computer also owned by the licensee, e.g.: One computer at home and another at work, or a desktop at home and a laptop at home.
