    Help on Dreamweaver for P.C

    Sorry for being dumb, but if i buy Dreamweaver for students and make a money making website for myself, will I be in breach of my contract with Adobe ? Can they see my website has been created on a student sold version?

    Thanks, still looking for that evasive cheap version on fleebay,

    Cheers

    I doubt they'll find out or have any issues

    At least you're buying a version of it rather than torrenting it

    I agree with the above, i cant see it being an issue.

    Also what happens when your not a student anymore then, do you have to buy a new version and stop using your 'student version'? .................I doubt it.

    Just curious whats the money making website your making? ;-)

    Nope nowhere in the code will it inject what version of DW your using so it wont matter. You can use the DW for any purposes I believe anyway.

    Ive used DW and created a website and its live right now.

    You will be in breach of the license yes. I believe that for the student copies of Adobe products you have to log into their servers in order to activate the license anyway and unlock the program - and they only give you the code after they have checked your status for eligibility (You have to send the photographic student ID etc) It does quite clearly state 'Student Edition products may not be used for commercial gain' but how they check that I don't know..

    *btw I know this because I looked into it myself when I was asking work to buy me a copy (as I am a student too). I thought it'd be as easy as just clicking the student edition for checkout and away you go - a colleague warned me it wasn't that easy and so I checked it all out properly. They must be one of the only companies who make it quite difficult! (but then this is only an issue if you can't prove you are a student - which I kinda assumed by the fact you were looking on ebay for it and not Adobe direct?)

    Nah, There is nothing embedded into the site - as surely you could just view the code and edit it out anyway?!
    Adobe are strict with licensing tho, and they also state that student editions cannot be re-sold, and cannot be installed on more than one computer - so keep that in mind when choosing where to buy from, as you may find you can't license it if it's already been activated elsewhere..

    I'm not sure on this, but I'm of the opinion that you can use it where it is licensed, and simply upload the html once done. At least this is what we were told at uni long ago when doing a web course using Dreamweaver.
