Price & 30 day risk-free trial:

This license is royalty-free. A single ActiveLedIt! license is good for a single developer. This entitles the developer to a copy of the ActiveLedIt! binary (cab files, etc), as well as documentation and samples. The purchase price includes three months of free support. Additional support may be purchased separately. Contact Sophist Solutions, Inc ( for information on site licenses.

Developers are entitled to a 30 day trial period. During this period, the developer may fully utilize ActiveLedIt! for any purpose (subject to following restrictions). Any time before the 30 days are up, the developer may return it for a full refund (less a 9.1% processing fee). If a CD has been shipped, it must be returned. Either way: any copies of the software on your machines must be destroyed.


This license does not include any of the C++ source code for ActiveLedIt!, nor the Led C++ class library (all these may be licensed separately).

Permitted Uses:

You may utilize ActiveLedIt! in any manner you see fit (subject to the limitations outlined in this license) to build either applications or components.


Any work-products based on, or incorporating ActiveLedIt must in some meaningful way give credit to Sophist Solutions, Inc. for what parts were used. This credit may take whatever form you deem appropriate for your use, but, for example, a mention in your about box (if you are developing an application that has an about box) would satisfy this requirement. These credits to Sophist Solutions, Inc. should include the web, and email addresses ( and

ActiveLedIt! may be distributed in binary form, as part of some other product, royalty-free. But that license is not transferable. In other words, you can freely build applications (or web sites) which are based on ActiveLedIt!, and sell those products, and redistribute ActiveLedIt! via those web sites. But you cannot resell ActiveLedIt! in a form where others could likewise redistribute ActiveLedIt!, thus competing directly with my ActiveLedIt! sales.

You may not redistribute modified binaries of ActiveLedIt!
