How to obtain the Lightweight HTML Scanner


We make two versions of the Lightweight HTML Scanner available. The Production Version should be what all professional users work with. We grant free licenses to the Evaluation Version of the Lightweight HTML Scanner for private users, for software development, for software ('shareware' type) distribution sites, and for a free 30-day evaluation period for professional users, under the conditions described in the License Agreement.

The Evaluation Version of the Lightweight HTML Scanner is fully functional, has no time limits or other similar restrictions, and is fully compatible with the Production Version. It only works slower, and the class files are a bit larger. Also your use of the Evaluation Version is restricted by the license agreement, that you have to accept before using the Lightweight HTML Scanner.

Software developed under the free Lightweight HTML Scanner Development License can be freely distributed, with some restrictions, with the Evaluation Version of the Lightweight HTML Scanner, granting the end-user a free 30-day evaluation period. This way shareware developers don't have to invest money if they want to use the Lightweight HTML Scanner. If you cannot live with the evaluation version restrictions, or if you prefer to distribute your software with the Production Version of the Lightweight HTML Scanner, so that your users don't have to pay us a fee, you can purchase a Redistribution License. We also have Single User and Concurrent User Licenses. Read the License Agreement or the License Options summary for more details on the different license types.
