License agreement Boot-US 2.1.8
The whole package Boot-US (GUI and DOS command-line version) with
all accompanying programs (boot manager, etc.) may be used in
the non-licensed version on private PCs for free. This allows a
broad usage of the program. Public schools may also use Boot-US
in the non-licensed version for free.
The report function of the command-line version of Boot-US (for DOS
and WIN32) may be used also in the non-licensed version for free.
This function is, intentionally, not protected by a license.
Additionally the whole package Boot-US may be tested in the
non-licensed version during a trial period of one month for free.
If you want to use Boot-US after this trial period on commercially
used PCs, you must purchase a license. The license entitles the
licensee to use Boot-US on the corresponding number of PCs and
it entitles the licensee to use the forthcoming versions of Boot-US
All future versions of Boot-US together with a (old) license allow
to use the previously available functions. Please note, that new
functions in future versions of Boot-US might not be available with
an old license. The author reserves the right to determine whether
new functions in future versions are available free of charge, or
are available with an old license or do require a new license.
Restrictions of the non-licensed version
The non-licensed version has the following restrictions compared
with the licensed version:
- no password protection in boot manager
- restricted password protection for configuration program
- no support for booting from a second, third,... disk
- no support for true partition hiding in boot manager
When the boot manager is installed to the hard disk these features
are available only in the licensed version.
The WIN32 command-line version is intended especially for larger
installations. All functions (except the report function) require at
least a 20-PC license. Only the report function may be used without
Testing all functions
It is possible to try all functions of the package Boot-US before
purchasing a license. To do this it is only necessary to install
the boot manager to diskette. When the boot manager is installed to
diskette all features are also available in the non-licensed version.
This allows the potential customer to check and try out all the
features of Boot-US.
Difference between license 2.x.x and 1.x.x
In the current version Boot-US 2.1.x there is no difference between
a license 2.x.x and 1.x.x. However, this will change in future versions
of Boot-US (2.2.x or 2.3.x). Then a license 2.x.x will be required in
order to boot Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 from a second, third, ... disk.
Also an upgrade option will then be offered. Currently there is no
upgrade option since in Boot-US 2.1.x there is no difference in
handling licenses 2.x.x and 1.x.x.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY
The whole package Boot-US has been developed with great care and
has gone through extensive testing. But it CANNOT be guaranteed
that all functions of Boot-US are fully operational and work as
described, and it CANNOT be guaranteed that Boot-US is free of errors.
You are allowed to test Boot-US freely for one month in order to
verify whether Boot-US works reliably and without errors in
your hardware environment. But at last you are using Boot-US
AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Please read also the legal stuff below. By using Boot-US you accept
these conditions of usage. If you do not agree you are not allowed
to use Boot-US.
The installation program Boot-US allows you to perform a test
installation of the boot manager to diskette and it does allow
to save the whole track 0 of the hard disk. Both measures support
a step-by-step testing of Boot-US in the actual hardware environment.
It is expected that during such a step-by-step installation of the
boot manager potential problems become quickly evident and can also be
repaired completely. Additionally the DOS program "bootusc.exe" has
been developed for repairing a failed installation even at a plain
DOS command prompt.
If you detect problems or if you have ideas for improvements,
please inform the author. It is intended to correct problems
as fast as possible (hopefully within a few days). On the other
hand, improvements are expected to require more time and will
therefore be implemented only in the forthcoming versions.

LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW

EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
SO THIS LIMITATION AND EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
