"Loaded" is defined to mean combining object code to form an executable.

RIGHT TO USE

As a Free Access Licensee, you have the right to use the Pad++ System as long as it is not combined with any product or service in any way. Use of the Pad++ System with commercially acquired software that depends on the Pad++ System in any way requires the commercial software supplier to have negotiated a Distribution License with the Pad++ Consortium.
