What is an Evaluation Version?

Evaluation versions provide a way of obtaining and evaluating software, giving users the opportunity to try a program on their own computer before buying it.

While evaluation versions are copyrighted, and the copyright holder retains all rights, the author specifically grants a user the right to freely evaluate and distribute the program, with limited exceptions.

After using the evaluation version for the defined trial period, the user must purchase a licensed copy or remove the evaluation version from their system.
