We are working hard on our documentation, videos, and all needed to get you up and running with PHsPeed. But we like to give you a kick start. Therefore you are most welcome to visit one of our free webinars! We give them almost weekly and is highly advised. If you run into any questions, please report to the forum.
We want you to be happy with the software. So we offer a try-before-you-buy edition. Download our software, try it for at least 20 days (max. 30 days), and decide if you want to buy a license. Please login, use the license manager, buy a new license, additional licenses, or renew your license. Use a valid email address. Yes, we know. There are all kinds of fake email addresses or email addresses valid for a limited amount of time. Fake email addresses always lead to a blocked account, sooner or later. But don't worry. As being a company stated in the EU, we need to comply with the EU privacy laws. We will NOT share your data with anybody except with the EU authorities if requested.
Since PHsPeed is a brand new product, it is starting to get a reputation so far. Some virus scanners might warn you about the download due to this reason. We are in contact with a lot of the producers to get our software whitelisted. To avoid issues, we have digitally signed our software so that you can be sure that it's from our environment and is safe to install. If the software is not digitally signed, then DO NOT INSTALL. Google currently validates our DNS, so downloading using Chrome should no longer be an issue; Microsoft edge is currently accepting installs.
The 'developer essentials' manual can be downloaded here: Manual.
The overall initial install procedure can take some time due to internet speeds and the development package's overall size. If you download the MSI package and install it directly, you can run into the 'The requested operation requires elevation' error message. If that is the case, then close the procedure and find the phspeed.exe in the PHsPeed install folder—Doubleclick to execute. Or (better), download from the web, go with file-explorer to your download folder and install from there. If you run into issues getting the product installed, then please contact support.
As of version 1.1, we have removed PHP 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3 from the download package. If you need it, then you can easily add it to PHsPeed. Download the zip file and unpack it in the PHsPeed xampp directory. The other packages can be used to restore if you destroy your instance by accident.
If you start PHsPeed and get the error that VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing, download the VS C++ Runtime 2015 from the Microsoft website.
First, look at the MSI, use the right mouse click to open properties. On the Digital Signatures tab, you should see something like below. After opening the MSI, the install will show a User Account Control page (digitally signed) in two steps. The first step shows a random number.msi that is used to open up the real application PHsPeed Setup (step 2)
Download the license manager and install it. The system will ask you to create an account, and you receive a temporary license.
If you are a registered user, then you can download the installer and log in. Within the installer, you can select your second license or transfer the license to another workstation.
I want to renew, but my license is already expired.
Two options. Within the first month of expiration, you are still able to renew the license with the discount. After this period, you need to buy a new license, and your VIP years will be reset to 0. The IDE for perpetual license holders will keep functioning, but there will not be any updates. If your installation gets lost for any reason, you can redownload your latest version from our archive website for a maximum of 3 years.
If you require a large number of licenses (more than 10), then please contact sales.
A question that we strangely get often. But a fair answer anyway. That might differ, depending on where you live. But an estimate:
Suppose that you or your developer require 200 hours for an assignment (one month), and the hourly wages are €40 (In the EU, 70€ is common). Then the total costs of the development will be €8000. We believe that by using PHsPeed, you can decrease your development time by at least 50%, but suppose this is only 10%. Then your profit would be €800. The costs of a license in the first year are around €300, the next year even lower. The ROI is less than a month in a very pessimistic calculation. More realistic for EU anyway: 200*70=€14.000. A decrease in development time of 50% is realistic, bringing a profit of 7000-300=6700€. The ROI is of no issue at all.
No, we do not have promotions during these special occasions. First, we don't think it is fair to other users that have paid the full price; second, we need to provide continuous support to our customers; and third, the pricing is already very competitive. We believe that PHsPeed is affordable for most developers. We need to pay our developers as well
