Unfortunately, I did not find much information in the google newsgroups.
There are still issues that I am trying to resolve but the ActiveX controls that I am using (importing into Delphi) do not have much in terms of pre-sales support and the terms for after purchase support are really iffy: "drop an email or send a fax and you might hear back from us in a few days" doesn't float my boat if I'm gonna drop $1000 on an SDK or Control.
Ive looked at the Nero SDK and it is not possible in our business model to always distribute Nero with our application. We need to be able to be autonomous if Nero ever changes its paradigm. Whats to say that Nero wont change its licensing next week, month, or year; Change their DLLs in their software distribution to enforce it; And, leave us in the cold hunting for old versions on EBay?
If there were a licensing option that gave us limited rights to distribute, I'd give Nero's SDK a much closer inspection. I see from activity on these forums that they have cultivated a community that uses their product and that is a very positive sign in my experience that they are going to continue support.
Enough venting... I should be working
Keep up the good work Tek.
