last updated 10 June 2003
Active Local Pages 1.1 and later have common binaries and you no longer need to download different set of packages to use them with your license.

Use the packages from the public site and just apply your license as appropriate. For your convenience here are the links to the most important downloads: 

ALP 1.1 Full package:
This is good for development workstations, contains documentation, samples and additional tools.

ALP 1.1 Redistribution package:

More redistribution samples for more complex redistribution scenarios (require you change them to fir your needs):

If you want to translate ALPInstall to tour language or just change some texts. Get this file and copy/paste TEXTS section from it over the MAIN/TEXTS section in your Setup.cfg and then edit the values as appropriate. Texts-Setup.cfg

Documentation

Now we supply NDL (newObjects Development Library) with ALP. It contains not only ALP documentation but also documentation on other components and products we offer. Often the ALP development involves usage of different components and sometimes additional tools. We hope that collecting all the documentation in one file is more convenient than referring to additional files which must be downloaded. As the NDL can be updated more frequently than ALP itself you can download the latest version here.

 

ALP License agreement

Download it as zipped doc. Or read/save it in HTML format.

It is recommended to include the ALP LA with the redistributed applications. However because of the specifics of the ALP licensing and software keys the owners of DEVELOPER license are not required to include the license agreement in the final applications. Including their own license agreement is more important than including the ALP license.

In case of corporate usage including the agreement can be a good practice in order to inform the employees.

 

 

Note that the links supplied below (in shaded part of the page) are only for archiving purposes. They point to older ALP version.

Old versions archive.
(Do not download unless you really need older version of ALP)

Current version 1.0.5.8/10

Packed with ALPInstall v. 1.1 and ALPFrame 1.1 (The documentation is not updated yet). ALPFrame API is compatible with the previous versions but contains some enhancements and behaves better in case of mixed ALP/Internet usage. Details will be published with the beta version of ALP 1.1. 

From version 1.0.5.6 ALP is packed with the all the available supporting tools. Package includes The ALP viewer - ALPFrame, ALP shell extension, new examples, quick tour and more. While ALP engine stands by the server-like side of the execution ALPFrame is a special viewer application that extends the DHTML model and allows the ALP applications to create and use window and context menus, control the window behavior and more. Menu usage is simple and structured. Compared to the object hierarchy which can be found in the popular RAD environments ALPFrame menu support is much more flexible and easy to use. By adding the ALP tour users have a chance to review the most important features of ALP before using it for the first time.
