                                    OFFICE LEASE

THIS LEASE is made this twenty-third (23rd) day of August 1996, between SLEEPY
HOLLOW INVESTMENT COMPANY, a general partnership, as Landlord, and INTRAWARE
INC., a Delaware Corporation as Tenant, on the following terms and conditions:

     1.   PREMISES:  Landlord hereby leases to Tenant the following described
property, hereinafter called 'premises':  Suite 101, Vintage Office Building, 25
Orinda Way, Orinda, CA, consisting of approximately 6,466 rentable square feet
which premises are outlined in red on the plan attached hereto and marked
'Exhibit A.'  Actual square footage is subject to final agreement between the
parties, provided, however, that the Premises shall not include a factor for
'common area' due to the presence of restrooms within the Premises.

     2.   TERM:  The term of this Lease shall be for a period of two (2) years,
commencing on the date possession of the premises is delivered to Tenant by
Landlord with the tenant improvements substantially complete.  Within thirty
(30) days of the date of said delivery of possession to Tenant, the parties
hereto agree to enter into a Lease Modification Agreement establishing the date
of the term of this lease and calculated size of the Premises.  If for any
reason whatsoever Landlord cannot deliver possession of the premises to Tenant,
this Lease shall not be void or voidable, nor shall Landlord be liable for any
loss or damage resulting therefrom, provided however, if the premises are not
delivered by December 1, 1996, Tenant may cancel this Lease and be refunded its
prepaid rent and deposit.

     3.   RENT:  Tenant shall pay to Landlord as rent in advance on the first
day of each calendar month of the term of this Lease, without deduction, offset,
prior notice or demand, ten thousand six hundred sixty nine and 00/100 Dollars
($10,669.00) ($1.65 per rentable square foot per month) in lawful money of the
United States.  Monthly rent shall increase to eleven thousand three hundred
fifteen and 00/100 Dollars ($11,315.00) ($1.75 per rentable square foot per
month) beginning with the thirteenth (13th) month of the lease term.  The rent
shall be payable to Landlord and mailed to:  Sleepy Hollow Investment Co., 2300
Contra Costa Blvd., Suite 200, Pleasant Hill, CA  94523 or such other address as
shall be designated in writing by Landlord.  If the date of commencement or
expiration of the term of this Lease occurs on a day other than the first day of
a calendar month, the rent at the monthly rate shall be prorated upon the basis
which the number of days of the term of this lease of such month bears to the
total number of days in such month.

     Receipt of the sum of thirty two thousand six hundred sixty nine and 00/100
Dollars ($32,669.00) is hereby acknowledged.  The sum of ten thousand six
hundred sixty nine and 00/100 Dollars ($10,669.00) shall be credited against the
first month's rent.  The sum of twenty two thousand and 00/100 Dollars
($22,000.00) is in consideration of the execution of this Lease and shall be
held as a Security Deposit.  In the event Tenant shall perform fully all the
terms and conditions of this Lease throughout the term, upon Tenant vacating the
premises and not being in default under this Lease, then Landlord shall return
said sum after first deducting any sum owing to Landlord.  If Tenant is not in
default of any of the terms of this Lease, Landlord shall apply ten thousand six
hundred sixty nine and 00/100 Dollars ($10,669.00) of the Security Deposit to
the eighth month's rent.  Landlord may apply said sum earlier upon approval of
Tenant's financial condition.

     4.   USE:  Tenant shall use and occupy the premises during the term for
general office purposes and for no other purpose without the prior written
consent of Landlord.  Tenant shall not use or permit the premises or any part
thereof to be used for any purpose other than the purpose or purposes for which
the premises are leased.


     No use shall be made or permitted to be made of the premises or acts done
which will increase the existing rate of insurance on the building or cause the
cancellation of any insurance policy covering the building or any part thereof.
If any act on the part of Tenant or use of the premises by Tenant shall cause,
directly or indirectly, any increase of Landlord's insurance, such additional
expense shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord upon demand.  Tenant shall not sell
or permit to be kept, used or sold in or about the premises any article which
may be prohibited by the standard form of fire insurance policies.

     Tenant shall not commit or suffer to be committed any waste upon the
premises or any public or private nuisance or any other act or thing which may
disturb the quiet enjoyment of any other tenant in the building in which the
premises are located.  Tenant shall not use the premises or permit the premises
to be used in whole or in part for any purpose or use that is deemed to be a
violation of any of the laws, ordinances, regulations or rules of any public
authority or organization at any time.  A judgment of any court of competent
jurisdiction or the admission by Tenant in any action or proceeding against
Tenant that Tenant has violated any such laws, ordinances, regulations or rules
in the use of the premises shall be deemed to be a conclusive determination of
that fact between Landlord and Tenant.

     5.   UTILITIES:  Landlord at landlord's sole cost and expense, shall
furnish the premises during reasonable business hours, as shall be determined by
landlord by regulations duly adopted by Landlord, and provided Tenant is not in
default under any of the provisions of this Lease, all water, sewage, and
janitorial service used in reasonable amounts on the premises.  The interruption
or curtailment of any such services shall not constitute constructive eviction
and shall not entitle Tenant to the abatement of rent or to any other claim
against Landlord.  Tenant at Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall contract
directly with gas and electricity providers for all gas and electricity provided
to premises.  Premises are metered separately from the rest of the building.

     6.   ASSIGNMENT:  Tenant shall not assign this Lease voluntarily or by
operation of law, or any right hereunder, nor sublet the premises or any part
thereof, without the prior written consent or landlord, which consent shall not
be unreasonably withheld.

     7.   CONDITION OF PREMISES AND REPAIRS:  Tenant shall be deemed to have
agreed by accepting occupancy that the premises are in good order, condition and
repair.  Tenant, at Tenant's expense shall keep the premises in good order,
condition and repair, including all fixtures and equipment installed by Tenant.
Tenant waives any statutory right to make repairs at the expense of Landlord.
In the event Tenant fails to maintain the premises in good order and repair,
Landlord shall give Tenant notice to make such repairs.  In the event Tenant
fails to do so, Landlord shall have the option to make such repairs at the
expense of Tenant.  Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for any damage,
inconvenience or interference with use of the premises by Tenant as a result of
the making of any such repairs.

     8.   ALTERATIONS AND LIENS:  Tenant shall not make or permit to be made any
alterations, changes in and additions to the premises without the prior written
consent of Landlord.  All alterations, changes and additions that may be
required shall be done either by or under the direction of Landlord at the cost
of Tenant, and shall become immediately the property of Landlord and shall
remain upon and be surrendered with the premises at the termination of the term
of this Lease.

     Tenant, upon the termination of this Lease or the expiration of the term
hereof, or for any other reason, shall quit and surrender the premises in good
order, condition and repair, reasonable wear and tear and damage by fire, and
act of God or the elements excepted.  Upon the termination of this Lease or the
expiration of the term or otherwise, Landlord shall have the option to require
Tenant to remove from the premises, at Tenant's expense, all improvements placed
on the premises by Tenant, with the premises thereafter to be restored to its
previous condition, at the expense of Tenant.


     Tenant shall keep the premises and building of which the premises are a
part free and clear of any liens and shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend
Landlord from any liens and encumbrances arising out of any work performed or
materials furnished by or at the direction of Tenant.  In the event any lien is
filed, Tenant shall do all acts necessary to discharge any lien within ten (10)
days of filing, or if Tenant desires to contest any lien, then Tenant shall
deposit with Landlord such security as Landlord shall demand to insure the
payment of the lien claim.  In the event Tenant shall fail to pay any lien claim
when due or shall fail to deposit the security with Landlord, then Landlord
shall have the right to expend all sums necessary to discharge the lien claim,
and Tenant shall pay as additional rental, when the next rental payment is due,
all sums expended by Landlord in discharging any lien, including attorneys' fees
and costs.

     9.   SIGNS:  Landlord shall provide building standard signage on the lobby
directory.  Subject to review and agreement by Landlord and the City of Orinda,
Tenant shall have the right to place a sign above the lower level entrance to
the Premises.  Said signage shall be consistent with the character and style of
the building and shall be at Tenant's sole cost and expense.  Tenant shall not
place or permit to be placed in, upon, about or outside the said premises or any
part of the building in which the premises are located, any signs without the
prior written consent of Landlord and the City of Orinda.

     10.  RIGHT OF ENTRY:  Landlord and its agents shall have the right at any
reasonable time to enter upon the premises so long as it does not interfere with
the business activities of Tenant on the premises, for the purpose of
inspection, serving or posting notices, maintaining the premises (including the
erection and maintenance of scaffolding, partitions and repair equipment as
shall be required), complying with laws, ordinances and regulations, protecting
the premises, or for any other lawful purpose, including showing the premises to
prospective purchasers or tenants and placing on the premises usual 'for rent'
or 'for lease' signs.

     11.  INDEMNIFICATION:  Landlord shall be free of all liabilities and claims
for damage by reason of any injury or death to any person or persons, including
Tenant, or property of any kind whatsoever and to whomsoever belonging,
including Tenant, from any cause or causes whatsoever, including acts or
omissions of other tenants in the building, except any liability and claim
caused solely by the acts of Landlord, its agents or servants, while in, upon or
connected in anyway with the premises, during the term of this Lease or any
extensions or renewal thereof, or any occupancy hereunder, and Tenant hereby
agrees to indemnify, save harmless and defend Landlord from all liability,
damages, loss, costs and obligation, including court costs and counsel fees on
account of or arising out of or alleged to have arisen out of, directly or
indirectly, any such injuries, death or losses, however occurring.

     12.  INSURANCE:  Tenant shall take out and keep in force during the term of
this Lease, at Tenant's expense, public liability and property damage insurance
with coverage in the amount of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) with companies
and policies and form satisfactory to Landlord.  Said policies shall be
presented to Landlord for written approval and said policies shall designate
specifically that Landlord is an additional named insured thereunder.

     Tenant shall obtain a written obligation on the part of any such insurance
company to notify Landlord in writing of any delinquency in premium payments and
of any cancellation of any such policy.  Tenant agrees if Tenant does not take
out such insurance or keep the same in full force and effect, Landlord may take
the necessary insurance and pay the premium therefor and Tenant shall repay to
Landlord the amount so paid by having such amount deemed to be additional rental
and payable as such in the next rental payment due.  Tenant shall take out and
maintain fire insurance covering his stock in trade and furniture and fixtures
in an amount equal to the full insurable value thereof.

     Landlord hereby releases Tenant and Tenant hereby releases Landlord and
their respective officers, agents and employees from any and all claims and
demands for loss, damages, expense or injury to the premises, furnishings,
fixtures and equipment located on the premises which is caused by or results
from perils,  events or happenings which are the subject of insurance carried by
the respective parties in force at the time of any such loss; provided, however,
that such waiver shall be effective only to the extent


permitted by the insurance covering such loss and to the extent such insurance
is not prejudiced thereby or the expense increased.

     13.  ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATE:  Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver
to Landlord at any time within ten (10) days after request by Landlord, a
statement in writing certifying, if such be the case, that this Lease is
unmodified and in full force and effect (or if there have been modifications,
that the same is in full force and effect as modified), the date of commencement
of this lease, the dates on which rent has been paid, and such other information
as Landlord shall  reasonably request.  It is acknowledged by Tenant that any
such statement is intended to be delivered by Landlord and relied upon by
prospective purchasers, mortgagees, beneficiaries, under deeds of trust or
assignees thereof.

     14.  COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND RULES:  Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost, shall
comply with all laws, ordinances, orders and regulation of all governmental
authorities with respect to the premises and the use and occupation thereof by
Tenant.  A judgment of any court of competent jurisdiction or the admission by
Tenant in any action or proceeding against Tenant that Tenant has violated any
such laws, ordinances, orders, or regulations, shall be deemed to be conclusive
as to Landlord and Tenant.

     Tenant and Tenant's agents servants and employees, visitors and licensees,
shall observe and comply strictly with the rules and regulations attached hereto
as Exhibit B and with all other reasonable rules adopted or which are adopted
hereafter for the care protection, cleanliness and proper operation of the
building and all the tenants in the building.  Landlord shall have no obligation
to Tenant as a result of the violation of any such rules by any tenant or any
other person.  Landlord shall maintain a copy of such rules in the office of
Landlord for inspection by Tenant at any reasonable time.  All of such rules
shall be deemed a material term in this Lease.

     Notwithstanding any provisions in Article 14 and Article 4 to the contrary,
Landlord and Tenant shall have no responsibility or liability for the intended
use by Tenant violating any zoning restrictions by the City of Orinda.

     15.  DESTRUCTION:  In the event of damage causing a partial destruction of
the premises during the term of this Lease from any cause and repairs can be
made within sixty (60) days from the date of the damage under the applicable
laws and regulations of governmental authorities, Landlord shall repair said
damage promptly and within a reasonable time, but such partial destruction shall
not void this Lease, except that Tenant shall be entitled to a proportionate
deduction of rent while such repairs are being made, such proportionate
deduction to be based upon the extent to which the portion of the premises
unusable by Tenant bears to the total area of the premises.

     If such repairs cannot be made in sixty (60) days, Landlord may, at its
option, make the same within a reasonable time, this Lease continuing in full
force and effect and the rent to be proportionately rebated as provided in the
previous paragraph.  In the event that Landlord does not so elect to make such
repairs which cannot be made in sixty (60) days, or such repairs cannot be made
under such laws and regulations, this Lease may be terminated at the option of
either party.

     16.  CONDEMNATION:  If the whole or any part of the premises shall be taken
for public or quasi-public use by right of eminent domain, with or without
litigation, or transferred by agreement in connection with such public or
quasi-public use,  this Lease, as to the part so taken or condemned or
transferred, shall terminate as of the date title shall vest in the condemnor
and the rent payable hereunder shall be adjusted so that Tenant shall be
required to pay for the remainder of term only such portion of the rent as the
area in the part remaining after the taking or condemnation bears to the area of
the entire premises as of the date title shall vest in the condemnor.

     In the event of such taking or condemnation by judgment, verdict or
agreement, Landlord shall have the option to terminate this Lease as of said
date, or if all of the demised premises shall be so taken or condemned or such
part thereof be so taken or condemned so that there does not remain a portion
susceptible of occupation hereunder, this Lease shall thereupon terminate.


     All compensation awarded upon such condemnation or taking shall go the
Landlord and the Tenant shall have no claim thereto, and Tenant hereby
irrevocably assigns and transfers to the Landlord any right to compensation or
damages to which the Landlord may become entitled during the term hereof by
reason of the condemnation of all or part of the premises.

     17.  REMEDIES:  If (i) Tenant's interest, or any part of his interest, in
this Lease be assigned or transferred, either voluntarily or by operation of
law, except with Landlord's consent, or (ii) a voluntary or involuntary petition
in bankruptcy, or for reorganization, or for an arrangement, be filed by or
against Tenant, or any member of  Tenant if Tenant be a partnership or joint
venture, or if Tenant be adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent, or if a receiver be
appointed of the business or of the assets of Tenant, except a receiver
appointed at the instance or request of Landlord, or if Tenant make a general
assignment, or any assignment for the benefit of his creditors, or (iii) Tenant,
after notice, fails to remedy any default (1) in the payment of any sum due
under this Lease for 5 days, or (2) in keeping of any other term, covenant or
condition of this Lease with all reasonable dispatch, then in addition to any
other remedy Landlord may have by operation of law, Landlord shall have the
right, without any further demand or notice, to re-enter the premises and eject
all persons from the premises, using all necessary force to do so, and either

     (I)  Declare this Lease terminated.  On such termination Landlord may
recover from Tenant

          (a)  The worth at the time of award of the unpaid rent which had been
earned at the time of termination;

          (b)  The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid
rent which would have been earned after termination until the time of award
exceeds the amount of such rental loss that Tenant proves could have been
reasonably avoided;

          (c)  The worth at the time of award of the amount by which the unpaid
rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds the amount of
such rental loss for such period that Tenant proves could be reasonably avoided;

          (d)  Any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all the
detriment proximately caused by Tenant's failure to perform his obligations
under this Lease, or which in the ordinary course of things would be likely to
result therefrom.

     The 'worth of the time of award' of the amounts referred to in
subparagraphs (a) and (b) above, is computed by allowing interest at the rate of
eight percent (8%).  The worth at the time of award of the amount referred to in
subparagraph (c) above is computed by discounting such amount at the discount
rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of award, plus one
percent (1%).

     (ii)  Without terminating this Lease, relet the premises, or any part of
the premises, as the agent and for the account of Tenant upon such terms and
conditions as Landlord may deem advisable, in which event the rents received on
such reletting shall be applied first to the expenses of such reletting and
collection, including necessary renovation and alterations of the premises,
reasonable attorney's fees, any real estate commissions paid, and thereafter to
payment of all sums due or to become due Landlord under Lease, and if a
sufficient sum shall not be thus realized to pay such sums and other charges,
Tenant shall pay Landlord any deficiency monthly, notwithstanding Landlord may
have received rental in excess of the rental stipulated in this Lease in
previous or subsequent months, and Landlord may bring an action therefor as such
monthly deficiency shall arise.

     18.  ATTORNEY FEE:  Tenant agrees that if Landlord is involuntarily made a
party defendant to any litigation concerning this Lease or the demised premises
or the premises of which the demised premises are a part by reason of any act or
omission of Tenant and not because of any act or omission of Landlord, then
Tenant shall hold harmless the Landlord from all liability by reason thereof,
including reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by Landlord in such litigation and
all taxable court costs.  If


legal action shall be brought by either of the parties hereto for the unlawful
detainer of the premises, for the recovery of any rent due under the provision
hereof,  the party prevailing in said action (Landlord or Tenant, as the case
may be) shall be entitled to recover from the party not prevailing costs of suit
and a reasonable attorney's fee which shall be fixed by the judge of the court.

     19.  ARBITRATION:  Any question, dispute or controversy arising under the
terms of this Lease, at the option of Landlord, shall be determined by
arbitration.  Such arbitration shall be conducted pursuant to the provisions of
the laws of the State of California then in force, with the rules of procedure
to be those of the American Arbitration Association or its successor insofar as
said rules of procedure do not conflict with the laws of the State of California
then in force.  Any award entered as a result of arbitration shall be entered as
a judgment, with the costs or arbitration to be paid as ordered by the

     21.  HOLDING OVER:  Any holding over after the expiration of the term of
this Lease by Tenant shall be deemed to be a tenancy from month to month and,
except for the term hereof, shall be on the same terms and conditions specified
herein so far as are applicable.

     22.  WAIVER:  No covenant, term or condition of the breach thereof shall be
deemed waived, except by written consent of Landlord, and any waiver or the
breach of any covenant, term or condition shall not be deemed to be a waiver of
any preceding or succeeding breach of the same or any other covenant, term or
condition.  Acceptance of all or any portion of rent at any time shall not be
deemed to be a waiver of any covenant, term  or condition except as to the rent
payment accepted.

be changed by either party by notice to the other party, or additional persons
and/or places may be designated.

     In the event any mortgagee shall elect to have this Lease a prior lien to
its mortgage, then and in such event, upon such mortgage notifying the Tenant in
writing  to that effect, this lease shall have priority over the lien of such
mortgage to the same extent as if the same had been placed on record prior to
such mortgage.  In the event that upon any sale, assignment or hypothecation of
the building of which the demised premises are a part, and/or of any leasehold
interest therein by Landlord, a statement shall be required from Tenant as to
offsets against the Landlord.  The Tenant agrees to furnish said statement to
the party demanding the same accurately and promptly.  Tenant covenants and

the event of exercise of the power of sale under any mortgage covering the
demised premises, whether or not this Lease is terminated by such foreclosure or
sale, that it will, upon request by the purchaser, attain to the purchaser upon

Lease, it being the intent hereof that if this Lease should be terminated by
such foreclosure or sale, it shall upon request by the purchaser, be reinstated
as a Lease between the purchaser and the Tenant.  The Tenant, upon request of
any party in interest, shall execute such instrument or instruments as shall be
requested to carry out the requirements of this paragraph.  For purposes of this
paragraph, the terms 'mortgage' and 'mortgagee' shall include, respectively,
