|Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit - Demo Information|
With this demo you can build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 lookup into your own programs!
The Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit is a commercial program developed by CD Light which gives Windows programmers the tools needed to access the national mailing address database. Using these tools, programmers can build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 lookup into all types of Windows programs.
We license the mailing address database from the US Postal Service. It contains mailing address information covering more than 125 million addresses in the USA and its territories. Please note: this is a MAILING ADDRESS database; it DOES NOT contain the names or phone numbers of individuals. It does, however, contain about 750 thousand business names and addresses.
The full SDK production version contains:

THIS DEMONSTRATION PRODUCT IS PROVIDED "AS-IS" AND IS INTENDED FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY. CD LIGHT ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR THE USE OF THIS DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. CD LIGHT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVISE THE PERFECT ADDRESS SDK AND OR ANY OF ITS COMPONENT PARTS AT ANY TIME WITHOUT OBLIGATION TO NOTIFY ANY PERSON OR ORGANIZATION OF SUCH REVISIONS.
DEMONSTRATION VERSION LIMITATIONS
The address database is limited to Orlando, Florida.
Download file PASDKDMO.ZIP and save it to an empty folder on your hard drive. Then double-click on this file to start the installation process. You must extract all of the files in the zip archive to that same folder. Next, run DMOSETUP.EXE to complete the installation process.
DMOSETUP.EXE copies UNZDLL32.DLL, the search engine module, to your Windows folder and creates UNZDLL.INI in your Windows folder. This file directs the search engine to the folder containing the eight demo database files, Z1.DAT through Z8.DAT.
To uninstall, simply delete the Perfect Address SDK folder and delete the files UNZDLL32.DLL and UNZDLL.INI from your Windows folder.
The sample address database included with this demo version of the SDK covers only Orlando, Florida. For testing purposes you can verify the following Orlando addresses with ADDE32.EXE:
We license the Perfect Address address database from the US Postal Service. Please note, however, that we have chosen NOT to qualify this product for postal discounts. The search engine and the database are NOT CASS-certified, and CANNOT be used to obtain postal bulk mail discounts. For that reason, our address database is not limited to a 60-day life, but can be used as long as you choose to use it. Address information does naturally change with time, and you will, most likely, wish to update the database to the latest information at some time in the future. But we place no usage or time restriction on access to the database.
Superfluous embedded spaces and punctuation characters are ignored and deleted by the search engine as part of the address standardization process.
The first line, if used, is reserved for a company name. The city-state-ZIP line (always the last line) need not be complete, and will be corrected, as necessary, to a USPS-approved city name. Either the ZIP code or the city-state can be missing. The search engine also corrects street name spelling, street prefix and suffix abbreviations, and standardizes addresses to USPS addressing standards.
After it processes an address, the search engine returns an error code describing the "correctness" of the address and any changes which were necessary. The calling program can then retrieve the corrected address, if necessary, and additional information about the address, such as ZIP+4, county name and FIPS code, congressional district, and Delivery Point Bar Code digits.
If an address cannot be verified or corrected, the search engine may return an error code indicating the existence of possible alternate address matches. The calling program can retrieve these addresses from the search engine for display to an operator who can make the final address selection.
* Semiannual subscription: Annual fee. You'll receive the January 2023 Perfect Address SDK now and a second version in six months.
