license agreement for the package in question. The RoboHELP license
agreement says:

"You may transfer the Software and Documentation to a single recipient on a
permanent basis provided you retain no copies of the Software or
Documentation (including backup or archival copies) and the recipient agrees
to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Software is an
upgrade, any transfer must include all prior versions of the Software and
