DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE

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
pocketbook, whether it's commercial or Shareware. The
Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you
can try before you buy. A nd 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.

DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT

Users of Painless Event Processor must accept this disclaimer
of warranty: "Painless Event Processor 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 Painless Event Processor."

Painless Event Processor 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
Painless Event Processor and continue to use Painless Event
Processor after a reasonable trial period, you must make a
registration payment of $45.00 to Painless Accounting. The
$45.00 registration fee will license one copy for use on any
one computer at any one time, and you will receive a printed
manual.
PAGE 1


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 persons at the same time.

Commercial users of Painless Event Processor must register
and pay for their copies of Painless Event Processor within
30 days of first use or their license is withdrawn.
Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting Painless
Accountng.

Anyone distributing Painless Event Processor for any kind of
remuneration must first contact Painless Accounting at the
address below for authorization. This authorization will be
automatically granted to distributors recognized by the (ASP)
as adhering to its guidelines for shareware distributors, and
such distributors may begin offering Painless Event Processor
immediately (However Painless Accounting must still be
advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date with
the latest version of Painless Event Processor).

You are encouraged to pass a copy of Painless Event Processor
along to your friends for evaluation. Please encourage them
to register their copy if they find that they can use it.

version of the Painless Event Processor system, and a
printed manual.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
