    hello all,

    I was wondering... if i dont have a license for vB, am i allowed to run it on my pc? i have a router with a built in firewall, so no one can access my local server. i only use it for testing php and mysql.

    i can give you my IP that way if you would like to check for the board to be online. (which it wouldnt, since i have no license)

    i am asking this because i would like to see how well i like vB and i am thinking about buying. Please respond. thank you for your time.

    Ofcourse not.

    If you do not have a license, then you did not download it through the members area. Which means you have a 'warez' version of the product. Therefor you are already breaking copyright.

    There are other bulletin boards on the market that are freeware which you can download and use to test your PHP and MySQL setup on your localhost.

    The rule that a member can run another unlicensed copy on his system/localhost is only for license holders (ofcourse!) and it is a temporary thing they can do in order to test a setup or some upgrade, prior to a real production envirenment.

    Click on the 'purchase' button at the bottom of this page and get yourself a license or immediatly remove it from your system. <-- my advice.

      Well, it would be illegal you to have vB without a licence.

          I hope your friend knows that what he would be doing is illegal. He is not allowed to share his copy. Not even for you to try out. He could loose his license, and even worse.

              No problem and remember. You and your friend WILL sleep better if you do the right thing.

                  in my 18 years of stealing i've learnt:

                  never tell somebody your gonna steal something before you do it

                  do you see anybody asking can they rob a bank before they do so?

                  btw I'm not promoting stealing vB, I'm just saying it was a bit of a daft question

                    But you did just admit that you have been breaking the law for at least 18 years or so
