End-User License Agreement for H2Reg

Last update: 8-Aug-2005 - Added point 11 to General section.


  1. "The Helpware Group" (also known as "Helpware") is an internet based business run from Melbourne, Australia.

  2. "The Product" means "H2Reg", shareware product created and owned by Helpware.

  3. All Helpware products were created using fully licensed and legal 3rd party software tools.

  4. Helpware provide all shareware products "As Is". All software products have been thoroughly tested. However because of the complexity of the software, the dependency on Microsoft APIs and the great variety in today's Windows platforms we can give no absolute guarantees as to the stability and correctness of our products.

  5. Product "H2Reg" is free to use for personal and for testing use.

  6. Product "H2Reg" is free to use if you want to use it purely for customer troubleshooting & diagnostics.

  7. Product "H2Reg" is a tool for registering MS Help 2 help files. You are entitled to use H2Reg.exe and its INI files within your Installation solutions and ship them to customers, provided you have purchased a license. ("Customer" is any third party which includes say the software engineers in the next room).

  8. The H2Reg license allows you to include H2Reg.exe within your installation setup package(s). Once you have created an Installation package (which includes H2Reg.exe) it is then yours to do with as you please. You could for instance pass a setup package onto another company who then offer it for download or include it on their Install CD.

  9. So repeating... The H2Reg License allows you to package H2Reg.exe into your installation package / solution. This package is then yours to do with as you like.

  10. The license is for perpetual. It will not expire.

  11. You may not use H2Reg to create a similar product that provides general registration services. Its primary use is to provide software installation builders a way of registering H2 Help Collections.
