    Default download or package

    What's the difference between the packaged and downloaded versions of software?

    Thanks

    only difference is the size of the .chm help file.
    the download version has a smaller .chm file.
    it is smaller because many images are not in the .chm file, but are read from the server when the user wants to see the image.

    I believe he might be referring to A5V9 Platinum. Download vs Package...

    I may be wrong but Package is where they will send you a CD or DVD & charge you aprox. $12.00 for mailing.

    Download is where they give you a link and you can dowload the software with no shippinig charge.

    I think Selwysns Response was clear

    every thin is the same except:

    only difference is the size of the .chm help file.
    the download version has a smaller .chm file.
    it is smaller because many images are not in the .chm file, but are read from the server when the user wants to see the image.
