HOW TO BUY

[ Pricing ]

A perpetual one time license that includes maintenance and support means your value lasts for years.

Development Pricing

All prices include free technical support and free maintenance releases for the life of the version. License is perpetual and a one time fee. Because support and maintenance is included, license is per developer.

All prices include royalty free distribution of our components with your compiled EXE applications that run locally on a client's system.

All prices include rights for placement on one production server, one test server, and one development server when developing web applications running on top IIS or similar web server software.

ProEssentials' one time pricing includes maintenance, support, and distribution. Divide price by the many years you expect your software to be in service. There's no greater value, or simpler maintenance.

Differences in Pro, Standard...

The Standard version has all the features and interfaces as our Pro version. All versions include Wpf, WinForm, WebForm, ActiveX, VCL, and DLL interfaces. All versions include 1200 plus properties, methods, and events. The only difference between the Standard and Pro is the quantity of data points and annotations that can be rendered.

The Standard version is limited to 8000 data points and 800 annotations. This limit is per instance of a control. You can have multiple controls running and each with the above limitation.

For example, 8000 data points could represent a 3D surface plot with 88 rows by 88 columns producing 7744 polygons. Or, a Scientific Graph can have 4 axes, with one subset per axis, each axis plotting 2000 points for a total of 8000 data points. The (number of Subsets) times (number of Points per subset) must be less than or equal to 8000 .

 

 

Additional Run-Time Licenses

Additional licenses are only required when ProEssentials is installed on multiple production internet/intranet servers to serve dynamic content from 3rd parties. For example, you're creating a web application running under IIS and you need to place this web application on 8 servers at 8 locations. Thus, 7 additional LDLs (your development license allows one production server) would be needed to distribute to a total of 8 plants. In this case, purchasing the (10 Qty) would likely be your best option.

If compiling an EXE to run locally on desktop systems (ran at your location or any location) no additional licenses are needed. Client side EXE distribution is royalty free as part of your development license rights.

See Chapter 6 Licensing within the product documentation for more information on Limited Distribution Licenses (LDLs). The actual ProEssentials License is also shown at the the the start of the setup program install process.

Generally, few customers need additional licenses as the product comes with the rights to place on one production server, one test server, and one development server. You only need more licenses if placing on more servers.

These LDL licenses are purely proof of purchase items. Actual deployment is based off the honor system. No license files or licensing schemes to hassle with.

If you need a royalty free license covering all possible scenarios, this can be negotiated. Give us a call.
