Licensing and Supporting EccoPro
Do customers want a supported version of EccoPro?
Supporting Ecco-Pro means Polywick Studio will have to buy the source-code to EccoPro, EccoExt, then spend lots of time upgrading.
This also includes obtaining the sources to certain "16-bit not-working" DLLs and "32-bit somewhat-working" third-party DLLs and data-files that CompuSol previously distributed without compensation.
This would a nightmare in terms of royalty-collection and redistribution.
This is step-sided, by re-building all from scratch and using 64-bit data-structures, Unicode along with open-access via Json, DDE.
