*Windows Vista Home Basic does not use the Windows Aero functions.
**Windows XP requires .NET Framework 3.0 (SP1) or later.
***This software cannot be used with computers that have 256 MB or less of available memory.

This software uses a license verification system (L.E.A.P.System) which requires Internet Connection.
After the first installation of the software, the license validation (activation) will be processed when starting the program. And it will also be processed periodically from time to time.
Therefore, the PC using this software must be connected to the Internet.

In environments like universities or companies using LAN, we cannot guarantee that the license verification will be correctly processed due to restrictions that might be set.
*Before purchasing the software, please run some tests with the trial version (which also includes the verification system).
