About Purchasing

Why Purchase CastleBar ?

CastleBar is not free software.  A lot of time and effort has gone in to the creation of this software.

CastleBar is released as trialware, meaning that you may use CastleBar for a trial period of 30 (thirty) days, at no cost to you, to determine if it fits your needs.  If you decide to continue using CastleBar, you will need to purchase a license by paying the applicable fee.

By purchasing, you are helping to ensure that CastleBar continues to be enhanced, and you are enabling Castle Software to write and release new products at reasonable prices.

The trial version also has some limitations that are removed when the program is registered and unlocked.

By purchasing a license you will be entitled to the following for free :

  • All maintenance releases (bug fixes) for that version of the product.  For example v2.17.3 is maintenance release 3 for CastleBar v2.17.
  • Priority support for any bugs you may find.
  • Preferential treatment for your suggestions for enhancements to the software.

Licensed users will benefit from a cheaper (and often free) upgrade path to the next version.
