Dear Mr. Starr:
I am the creator of the Scanhack website and I recently happened across your message at http://www.starrsoft.com/freeware/scanhack.asp concerning the Scanhack files.
Up until this point I did not realize I was in violation of your license agreement by including your programmer embedded in the Scanhack installer. I have made certain that it is very explicitly stated that the included Starrsoft installer is freeware that is included free of charge, and all credit is given to Don Starr and Starrsoft.com.
I will no longer offer the embedded installer and I have begun creating a new installer that does not contain the Starrsoft programmer(s) but will instead instruct the buyer that he/she must manually download the freeware from your website. All credit to Don Starr and Starrsoft will remain. With your permission, I will instead offer a link to the appropriate Starrsoft page.
I have never had the intention of ripping you off, and I do not mention the WinXX programmers on the Scanhack website so as not to use the freeware to promote sales of Scanhack. Please accept this note as a formal apology for the inadvertent violation of your licensing agreement.
While many people criticize Scanhack as a rip-off, many buyers have stated that they find it valuable as they do not wish to spend the time or effort creating the files to upload to their receiver. While any WinXX user can manually enter the frequencies, many users wish to scan/search an entire frequency spectrum. This was the idea behind the Scanhack files.
In closing, I would like to thank you for your WinXX programmers, they are valuable products to the scanner community. I recently purchased the Win97 programmer and as usual, it is a fine product.
