Similar to Backup4all, novaPDF  should be a distinctly familiar name to dotTechies because I have written about novaPDF multiple  times  in the past. For those that don’t remember, or don’t know, what novaPDF is, I will give a short recap.
novaPDF is a commercial PDF printer which allows you to turn any file which you can print into a PDF. There are three editions of novaPDF – Lite, Standard, and Professional. Each edition has a “desktop” and “server” version. This chart compares the differences in features between the editions:
(If you would like to learn about novaPDF in detail, feel free to read my review on novaPDF Standard (v6.4) .)
While last week we had 30 licenses of Backupall Professional  to share with dotTechies, this week we have 30 licenses of novaPDF Professional  (desktop version) to giveaway for free! Since novaPDF is another product by Softland, the same terms and conditions apply to these novaPDF Professional licenses as were applied to the 30 licenses of Backupall Professional. What I mean to say is whoever wins a license of novaPDF Professional “get the same rights as (regular) customers of Softland.” These “rights” include receiving all “minor updates” for free. A minor update consists of, for example, v7.0 -> v7.1 but not v7.0 -> v8.0. Once you hit the point where you can no longer attain free updates, you can still continue to use your novaPDF Professional copy for free indefinitely.
Here are the rules of this giveaway:
Version being given out: v7.0.327
Free updates: Minor updates only
Supported OS: Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008/Win7
Download size: 7 MB
- To win a license of novaPDF Professional, you must post a comment below stating that you want to enter the drawing. If you do not state specifically that you want to enter the drawing, you will not be entered.
- You may only enter once and you may only win one license. Anyone caught trying to enter more than once or trying to win more than one license will be disqualified.
- 10 licenses are reserved for dotTech donors, authors, forum admins, and artists. If you fall in this category, please specifically state it in your comment (say “I am donor”, “I am author”, etc.) or else I may not know; also if you are a donor, use the e-mail you donated with so I can verify. The other 20 can be won by anyone.
- I reserve the right to award specific people licenses if I feel they have helped foster the dotTech family by being very active (the people who fall into this category is at my sole discretion).
When posting a comment, please make sure you enter an e-mail that is 100% valid and an e-mail you will check because the licenses will be distributed directly by my contact in Softland. If you win and don’t have a valid e-mail or an e-mail you don’t check, your license will go to waste. However, please don’t post your e-mail in your comment! You should never post your e-mail on a public form. Just enter the e-mail you want to be contacted at in the “E-mail” field when writing your comment – I will be able to get your e-mail from there. Or if you are a registered dotTechie, just post a comment normally and I will be able to find your e-mail.
By entering in this drawing, you give dotTech permission to give your e-mail to Softland – so they can contact you with your license information – if you win.
The winners of this giveaway will be determined using a random number generator when the giveaway ends (there will be a random number generation for the 10 reserved licenses, and there will be a random number generation for the other 20). The giveaway will end in 72 hours (on February 12, 2010).
Good luck to everyone!
