Hi all.

First of all, excuse my pore english.
I did not really know where to post it.
I wanted to warn the owner about piracy. I had ( i think ) a pirate version of Vista Style Builder.
I made a training course in a company, and i met someone who sold me an old portable computer. I found Vista Style Builder in a folder, with some other things, before erasing the hard drive. I heard about it on Deviant Art but never used. I installed it on my computer to test the app. I had some bugs with trying many changes, and i did not understand how it works, so i uninstalled. Then i saw the 1.5 release, and wondered if i could receive the download link on my email, or on the seller mailbox then he could give to me. I mailed Andreas Verhoeven. I also mailed the guy who sold me the computer and he answered me he had VSB from a friend and that he thinks he did not buy it. He also never installed it in fact. That's why i did suppose this version i had is a pirate one, coming from internet or somewhere else i don't know...
I think that the users on this forum purchased VSB legaly, but i wanted to warn Andreas. I think there's a large difference between hacking an Adobe product, than a student work costing only 17€.

Anyway, i do not have much time to start a new VS, but i think i'll  purchase Win7 Style builder if i decide to start it  Wink.

Email adress and license key was already written when i launch the setup. Don't even remember but it was not french. The license key was very long, about 50 characters. Are your license key so long ? never seen that.

Nvm, it was bugging (correct word ?), and too hard to understand. Comments are good about 1.5, i'll buy it next month. Awesome work you made Ave.
