Lactate-E is distributed under a shareware licence. This means you can download and try the software for free but if you wish to continue to use it you must purchase a licence. If you cannot afford to purchase a licence the author may be willing to waive the fee.

You can purchase a licence now via PayPay by clicking on the Donate link. I suggest a price of €30 for individuals and €100 for organisations, but if you cannot afford this I will accept lesser amounts.
