Understanding that Domoshield has had it's life ended...
Is there a legal place to purchase an upgrade?
I have some projects that used 6.5 and I'd like to bring them up to date.

Googling returns a boat load of sites to purchase it for $30...but are they legal copies?

InstallShield (now Acresso) doesn't sell DemoShield anymore. So the only way to get it would be buying a used copy or a pirated copy. I'm not sure how feasible and legal it is to buy a used copy.
Also I'm not sure how well DemoShield works on newer Windows versions, and if there may be any security bug that will never be fixed.
If I recall correctly, the last version was DemoShield 8, released in 2004.

Maybe you'd better migrate to another tool.
