[Fixed] ZSoft Uninstaller only for NON-commercial use?

PortableApps' page on ZSoft Uninstaller portable
(https://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/zsoft_uninstaller_portable)
says:

License: Freeware (Personal and Business)

but it looks like it's only for NON-commercial use, as explained in ZSoft's forum post on "License"
(http://forum.zsoft.dk/index.php?topic=137.msg803#msg803)

***** BEGIN QUOTE ******
Re: License

...

The following license is presented when you install the product:

Copyright (C) 2004-2007 ZSoft

This license applies to everything in the package, except where otherwise noted.

This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied warranty. In no event will the authors be held liable for any damages arising from the use of this software.

Permission is granted to use this software for non-commercial purpose only.

So, basically freeware, only for non-commercial purposes though.
***** END QUOTE ******

I tried installing the NON-portable version and that's exactly what its license says (except that the Copyright dates have been extended through 2010).

Missed

Good catch, somehow we missed a) having the license shown on install, and b) listing the app as freeware for personal use only. I've updated the app accordingly, and sent it for release.

[EDIT] Although I've sent it for release already, please edit your topic title to start with [BUG] so it gets tracked properly in our bug tracker. Thanks!

You're welcome

I didn't notice the license difference myself.
I was discussing the program with someone else, who used the NON-portable version, and he mentioned that it was only for commercial use.
Thanks for taking care of this.

Fixed in 2.5 Rev 3

This is fixed in today's revision and the app homepage has been updated.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

1 more PortableApps Web page needs updating

Thanks.

I noticed, though, that although the "ZSoft Uninstaller Portable" page (at https://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/zsoft_uninstaller_portable#downl...) has been changed to say:

...
ZSoft Uninstaller is freeware for personal use.
...
License: Freeware (Personal use only)
...

the "ZSoft Uninstaller Portable 2.5 Rev 3 (software uninstaller and cleaner) Released" page (at https://portableapps.com/news/2013-09-02--zsoft-uninstaller-portable-2.5...) says:

ZSoft Uninstaller is freeware for personal and business use.
