Moving away from CD/DVD

I've been using RadiAnt for years (old version) and it's been ideal for when we've been burning CD/DVD and distributing them. However, more and more people now are moving away from optical media in favor of downloadable content.

In order to remain up to date, we've put together a trial version of a web site where DICOM can be downloaded and are now looking for a viewer to include in the download.

I've still got maintenance on the latest version of the viewer and wondered what would happen if I included RadiAnt in the download. Interestingly, it works without issue, but there's a screen stating that "the viewer will only work on CD/DVD/USB drives".

The viewer does actually work REALLY WELL, so my questions are:

1. Am I in license infringement having the viewer in a download, as opposed to a CD?
2. Is there a way of removing the "will only work" screen?

Please understand - I pay for the viewer, and I always will (for CDs) and I would be happy to pay for another license for our WWW site.

I've emailed RadiAnt support but didn't get any response, so I'm hoping their staff reads this forum and I can get an answer (unless someone else knows the answer?)

Currently the only option to distribute RadiAnt is via CD/DVD/USB.
Downloadable archives with RadiAnt CD/DVD versions are not covered by the EULA.
This is something we have to consider and probably design a licensing model that would work well with downloadable content.

BTW, we didn't receive your email...
