Free vs Pro


Recommended Posts

Because I understand the objections from nuhi (NTLite) that people would take a full test-version (time limited) to generate the own ISO and never pay for it, here my suggestion:


1) a free-version with ONLY a working AIO, just to integrate, without any other working functions (with the hint "Available for Pro-Version only") and the possibility to switch it to Pro (key).

2) a pro-version with all the function enabled and working; I think a fair price between 25 and 35 € would be payable for every one.


A key to switch the free version to pro or a "personal" download link per email (like PartedMagic) would make for me no difference.

If u want to sell pro version directly - dont make cost high - i think 5-10 euro is ok - because higher the cost  = higher the chance to be cracked.

Also will be forced to make changes to protection\encryption with every new version - instead of upgrading WT itself.

I really don't know the best way..... Good luck)

The target market for this type of tool is relatively small. Most use it for rolling their own local install, I'd venture to guess. The AIO and x86/x64 combos (pardon my layman terms) should be reserved for a Pro version, as these would presumably be folks looking to do multiple installs, giving them a reason to invest. I'd say up to some €50 for a corp or site license would be OK. (I wonder, though, if there is much room between hobbyists/power users and corp users of Windows IT tools.) A Win10 version should offer an upgrade at a lower price for 8.1 buyers, and be free for those who bought it in the last 6 months.


My $0.02... and thanks so much for the tool.

i prefer donating

i spend some coins to the 1.x version because its worth for me


the ntlite is a realy clean software package so i think its industry quality

but 45$ is a bit high for home users in this special case


so if the next wintoolkit will be released i think its better to make the mainfunktions free (we can discuss what is main)

and all other push a 10-30 second wait window so its possible to test

or make a advert window like in the 1.x 

i think not more than 15€ so is the chance high that u have alot more buyer ..

u can reduce the price for the older donators ;-)
