How much does this money-saver cost?

Single license .... $ 59.00 only
(= DM 99,- = SFR 89,- = ATS 690,-) *)

( ..or just $
54.00 when sent by regular mail )

Important: you need additional licenses if you plan to use INF-Tool (the setup designer program itself, not the created setup packages) on more than one Computer.
Compared to most other professional installation software with INF-Tool's flexibility this setup tool is still very cheap, but we want to keep this offer to give interested people, but primarly Freeware programmers, Students etc. the chance to get it for a price they can easily afford if they really want INF-Tool's advantages for distributing their products.
Professional companies must purchase exactly the number of licenses you are really using (1 license for each computer INF-Tool is installed on).

Need more licenses? - Save more money!

Multiple licences allow an institution, company or school to install the program on multiple computers or on a server. It must be guaranteed that the program does not run on more machines at the same time than there are licences purchased. All licences are issued to the same (company) name, which appears in the program's title bar. Each additional licence also allows a single user to use the program at home.

Units From   up to      Price Per Unit
1    2       $ 59.00
3    5       $ 49.00
6    14       $ 39.00
15    24       $ 29.00
25   unlimited    $ 19.00

Example: you need 10 licenses for your company or school class. You calculate the total price as follows:
   2 x $ 59.00 +
   3 x $ 49.00 +
   5 x $ 39.00
    $ 460.00 (instead of $590.00)->
