LesveDomeNet Distribution and Registration policy.

LesveDomeNet is a shareware with a free trial of 60 days. During this period you will be able to complete your Dome Automation project and you will receive the needed support. My LesveDomeNet development activity is not commercial. This service is given with pleasure. The license fee amount is 50 Euros. To activate the free trial period, you have to send me the "Local code" by email at
pierredeponthiere AT gmail.com

As soon as I receive your "Local Code", I will send you a trial Registration code. Enter this registration code and LesveDomeNet driver will be fully operational. Without the trial registration code, LesveDomeNet driver disables the calls to the K8055N Velleman module.

To obtain an Unlimited Registration Code make a payment of 50 Euros (about 65 USD) and send me your "Local Code". If for any reasons you switch to another PC running LesveDome, send me the new "Local Code" and you will receive a new permanent registration code.

Registration key for the old version of LesveDome.

If you already have a permanent license for the old LesveDome and need a new registration code because you are using a new PC, just ask for it. I will continue to provide it for free as agreed at the registration time.

Upgrade from LesveDome to LesveDomeNet

If you already have permanent license for the old version, the upgrade fee for the new LesveDomeNet is 25 Euros.
You will notice that the "Local codes" for LesveDome and LesveDomeNet are different and the registration codes are not interchangeable.

Long term issues.

In the long term, when LesveDomeNet driver will be obsolete and no more supported, I commit myself to release a last revision without registration key. But it's still possible that something wrong happens to me! To cope this issue, each time a new revision is released, a copy without registration key is deposited to my son-in-law. In this worst case he has accepted to release it on the discussion group : lesvedome at groups.io.

For the license fee payment, click on the "Donate" image, you will be directed to the secure PayPal website.
You can use Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress or your PayPal account.
Fee amount 50 Euros
