Ion Cube Loader Only in Demo

Anyone know about the Ion Cube folder in the demo but not in the licensed versions? Did they do away with this?

I don’t understand. The ioncube loader is used with the demo mode in order to protect source code. Why would you even want that with the payed version?

As far as I knew the Ion Cube is a php accelerator?

Thats what they say but I have not seen any data that proves it. I think if you want to use ioncube for yourself you would have to buy it. Zend is probably a better choice though, even though it does not run on my server.
