"The software is a copy on cd-r/dvd-r, it does not include a box or licence." You are buying a an umlicenced copy which is suspect to say the least. If the website is run by a company it falls foul of the regulations which require by law that information is given on the site i.e.: Company name Place of registration Registered number Registered office address
Even if the seller is not a company, would you really want to buy from someone who gives no 'phone number or address?
Well... I really, really want a copy of Corel PhotoPaint which will work with Vista, I really, really don't want to pay nearly £400 for the full Draw suite to get it. I'm tempted, it's not as if I've ever had an update from Corel, all I get is advertising. I'm currently using Paint Shop Pro X2, but it's not a patch on PhotoPaint, which does everything I want to do in the way I like to do it.
I didn't know it was available separately, then I noticed it was for Linux. I'm not averse to buying a pirate copy, I've already paid Corel for version 6, but it won't run on Vista and there's no upgrade offered to buy. I would still pay for a new copy, if it was available and it was a sensible price. I worry about downloading a pirate copy - mainly, what would I be downloading along with it, though I suppose the same goes for any pirate copy.
Sorry, I'm not too familiar with this software, but you have Version 6 of what package? Rather than buy counterfeit software, which is a no-no, if you have a version of Photopaint or the full CorelDRAW graphics suite with Photopaint in it, can't you just run it in Vista compatibility mode for Windows XP or Win 98/95? I have had my fingers burned before buying cheap software (Nero)on ebay and it can crash.
