ProEssentials is sold as a product per developer. If
multiple developers will be developing with ProEssentials, requesting
technical support, requiring documentation, references, header files,
import libraries, and other compilation materials, then one copy of ProEssentials
is needed per developer. Placing
ProEssentials on a build machine or personal laptop is fine as the product is licensed
For client-side distribution, ProEssentials is Royalty Free when distributed
with your client side EXEs.
For server-side distribution, purchasing ProEssentials allows distribution
onto one Production Server and one Test Server, but is Not Royalty Free
and requires an inexpensive run time Limited Distribution License (LDL)
if distributing onto more than one IIS server. For
most customers, no additional licenses are necessary. Only
when distributing to multiple IIS servers requires the use of LDLs. If
a customer buys multiple copies of ProEssentials for multiple developers,
then they are allowed distribution on to that many production
also reduces the chance that you may need to purchase an LDL.
Limited Distribution License ( LDL)
For web productions to 3rd party servers, this per PC license allows re-distribution of
ProEssentials onto multiple IIS servers. This license does not allow development.
This license will be available with volume discounts. As of this writing,
the best pricing will be $6999.00 for 250 licenses. This equates to $28
per license to allow for redistribution rights and server side use. Pricing
may change so contact Gigasoft, Inc. for current information on pricing.
We are expecting customers distributing ProEssentials onto multiple
IIS servers to buy LDLs on behalf of their third party users in cases
where the third party needs to place ProEssentials on their own server. We are
relying on the honor system and only ask that you keep records of which
product serial numbers are assigned to which customers.
