MyNews is usually just one program for all versions, but the
license key file unlocks or blocks features.
Full information about the different versions (and sales) are in the SALES-PAGES.
Here a few details about the versions.
Users who never purchase shareware and
want ONLY the freeware MUST NOT USE the Express Setup !
Please use ONLY the FREE>> Button on the first page for configuring MyNews!
At the first start of MyNews you are asked for a name for your
MyNews. These names must be unique in the MyNews network. And the
'uniqueness' is guaranteed by a central registration server which
carries a list of all registered names.
As soon as you register your name online (and the name was accepted) - your MyNews turns into a free version. A lot of features can be used now - but your are still protected against some critical things.
If you skip the online registration for your name, then MyNews
is running as a trial version. Most features of the full version
You can downgrade at any time to a free version with the Free Version button in the Guide.
If you are running MyNews for commercial purpose - in a company or an office environment, then you must run a full version. The full version is also nice for power users - because it offers full fun and a lot of uncompared features.
For running a company server or creating your private Usenet - completely independent from me and others - you need a root server license.
