    Hi Ashraf,

    Thanks for the post. I registered it as per se but after checking the novaPDF properties it says “partial key” and only shows the last 16 keys. Is this ok? Will it later says that this license is valid for a short period of time.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Ashraf.

    I do wonder if we’re beginning to see a rearguard action being fought by some commercial software publishers against the high quality of freeware alternatives.

    As here: no reason for this developer to suddenly release a “Lite” version. And, TBH, not much point — on the face of it — for anyone to bother with, unless they’ve the time / inclination to run some detailed comparisons.

    Me, I’m happy with my fast freeware combination of Bullzip PDF Printer / Foxit Reader. And thanks to your efforts, there’s always eXPert PDF for more complicated tasks I occasionally undertake.

    * For reasons unknown, Bullzip rarely gets a mention anywhere, yet its speed and output quality are excellent. Freeware at its best — and not ‘LITE’, either.

    This software will be very useful for me since a lot of pdf documents can be read instantly and effectively. Wishing all a very wonderful 2010 !

    This is a pretty nice PDF software, iirc. I’m more familiar with the Pro version, so I can’t speak much to the Lite. For myself, I settled on Nuance’s PDF Professional a couple of years ago. I still have version 5 and it works very well. Still, this is a nice offering. Thanks for the post.

    actually they give the same registration data whatever name or email you give (so you can use it on any number of computers without re-register), but thats acceptable as software houses got to gather some emails for their databases…
