I was under the impression from the OP that they were looking for tutorial manuals/guides - having not seen the Protel manuals that come with the device I cannot comment whether these would be suitable in this respect.We have a manual that came with our Protel 99. Where are the manuals that came with your package?
The actual request was for "quick learning manuals or any manuals".I was under the impression from the OP that they were looking for tutorial manuals/guides - having not seen the Protel manuals that come with the device I cannot comment whether these would be suitable in this respect.
This largely depends on the conditions of the software EULA. For example, if you were to obtain a copy of say MS Office Student, the EULA states that as long as you were a legitimate student at the time of purchase then you amy continue to use the software once you are no longer a student. Now if you were to obtain a copy of Matlab Student, the EULA states that once you cease to be a student you may not continue using Matlab under a student license and hence must purchase a full license (at ~$1900 US prices IIRC).BTW if you have a student version of a piece of software is it legitimate to continue using it after you have left the university? I'm just curious.
Typically, people enrolled on academic courses can get access to full versions (not Student versions) of the software through academic licenses administered via remote licenses and VPN clients. I agree though, some software is criminally expensive and often cannot be justified at the cost they are asking for (a good example is commercial EM codes which range into tens-of-thousands of pounds for a 1-year license!). Although I am not condoning it, it does encourage people to look elsewhere for software. And now we must be careful about what we say.I find there is a strong correlation between the cost of the commercial version and the willingness to wink at the uses of the crippled or student versions. In actuality he didn't say weather the version he has is a student version or not. He just said that he got it from his instructor; there was no further ellaboration.
