Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software
before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue
using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs
differ on details -- some request registration while others
require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With
registration, you get anything from the simple right to
continue using the software to an updated program with
printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial
software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a
few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors
are accomplished programmers, just like commercial authors,
and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both cases,
there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is
in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants
the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all
and sundry or to a specific group. For example, some authors
require written permission before a commercial disk vendor
may copy their Shareware.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software.
You should find software that suits your needs and pocket,
whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system
makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before
you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low
also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if
you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.


Users of ActaeOn must accept this disclaimer of warranty:

"ActaeOn is supplied as is. The author disclaims all
warranties, expressed or implied, including, without
limitation, the warranties of merchantability and of fitness
for any purpose. The author assumes no liability for damages,
direct or consequential, which may result from the use of

ActaeOn is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge
to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your
friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of
another system. The essence of "user-supported" software is
to provide personal computer users with quality software
without high prices, and yet to provide incentive for
programmers to continue to develop new products. If you find
this program useful and find that you are using ActaeOn and
continue to use ActaeOn after a reasonable trial period, you
must make a registration payment of $39.95 (+$4 S/H) to
Shareable Software International (See ORDER.FRM). The $39.95
registration fee will license one copy for use on any one
computer at any one time. You must treat this software just
like a book. An example is that this software may be used by
any number of people and may be freely moved from one
computer location to another, so long as there is no
possibility of it being used at one location while it's being
used at another. Just as a book cannot be read by two
different people at the same time.

Commercial users of ActaeOn must register and pay for their
copies of ActaeOn within 30 days of first use or their
license is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made
by contacting Shareable Software International.

Anyone distributing ActaeOn for any kind of remuneration must
first contact Jon Clempner at the address below for
authorization. This authorization will be automatically
granted to distributors recognized by the Association of
Shareware Authors - UK (ASA-UK) or the Association of
Shareware Professionals (ASP) as adhering to its guidelines
for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin
offering ActaeOn immediately (However Jon Clempner must still
be advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date
with the latest version of ActaeOn.).

You are encouraged to pass a copy of ActaeOn along to your
friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register
their copy if they find that they can use it. All registered
users will receive a copy of the latest version of the
ActaeOn system.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
