Emerald lite, simply has no billing. You can not generate
invoices. There is no configuration of the billing aspects
of the users available. It really designed for those sites
that don't need a billing system (like corporate Intranets)
but still want the GUI user management and database tools that
comes with Emerald.

All versions of Emerald come with RadiusNT Enterprise. However, the
license that comes with Emerald is a PER USER license, unlike a RadiusNT
license (so by buing Emerald Lite you are not saving money on
RadiusNT Enterprise, its a comletely different license).

Its alll software controlled via your license key.
