AppFace User Interface Development Kits (AUDK ) provides a solution for applications beautification by dividing design and coding. Its core appface.dll is a Windows standard dynamic library which is actually a skinned UI control base. When the skinning control is loaded, it can automatically beautify UI as predefined schemes. When design is finished as URF skin, the programmer only needs to load / unload skinning library code. If you want to change software UI, just change according skin file will be OK. It's super convenient!

After purchase, you can :

  • Get proper register info to release the trial limit
  • Enclose AppFace library and URF skins as modules into your commercial software for unlimited distribution without any extra costs.
  • Free technical support (E-mail)
  • Free upgrades (binary files).

As described below, it has three editions available :

  1. Personal Edition
  2. Enterprise Editon
  3. Source Code Edition .

Personal Edition

  • The skin component (appface.dll )
  • The free skin editor (skintool.exe )
  • Samples, manual and URF skins

Personal Edition Specifications

The personal license is corresponding this edition, it granted one person who purchased AppFace to develop/distribute software with it .

Although skinning function and files are the same for registered copy and unregistered copy, the unregistered one has 30-day trial period and cannot distribute appface.dll .


Above products share the same file, the only difference lies in register code. If register code you buy is different from your R&D tool, some GUI CANNOT be skinned ! For example, if the main program is based on Visual Basic 6.0, but there are some VC and C ++ Builder control, the whole application UI cann't be skinned if you buy AppFace For Visual Basic 6.0 . However, this will not happen if you buy AppFace For All.

AUDK adopts electronic distribution method via internet..

After you purchase AUDK, you only need to enclose appface.dll and URF before you distribute softwares.

* AppFace For All means this type license code can be used to VB6/VC/Delphi/C++ Builder/ VB.Net/C#/Win32 SDK/PureBasic/PowerBasic projects .

** The Static Library should be used to MS VC 6.0/ 7.0/ 7.1/ 8.0 projects with "Use MFC in a static library" compiled condition . The binary files compiled by the static library can be distributed anywhere without any MFC or AppFace libraries . The static library is "Release" version, and does not offer a trial, since it has the full functions as the same as appface.dll. Please use appface.dll for trial or debug version .

Enterprise Edition Specifications

enterprise range to to develop/distribute software with AppFace .

Visual C++ developers can distribute the skinned software without appface.dll by using the static libraries .

Since developers can trial all the skinning functions of AppFace with Personal Edition, we do not offer alone trial version for the Enterprise Editon again .
