What is the difference between Server-Based and Developer Licenses?
There are a few differences between the type of licenses we offer in our .NET SDKs and it’s important that you know the details to have the best fit for your system.
Server based licensing is intended for developers who wish to install our software on their server or web server. It is licensed per production server and allows an unlimited number of installations on development workstations and development servers. This licensing model is ideal if you wish to install our software on a limited number of servers. Also, it allows us to offer a lower price to developers who do not intend to distribute our software to a large number of servers or workstations.
Developer based licensing is intended for developers who wish to distribute our software to a large number of clients. It allows one developer to develop an unlimited number of client or server based applications that use our product and distribute them royalty free. Our assemblies can easily be deployed with another application using XCOPY or a setup program.
