1. Licensing questions on our software components
Does the license provide royalty free use of components?Yes, all components come with a license for royalty free use of the components when used in binary compiled applications.
What is the difference between a single developer license, small team license and site license?
- A single developer license allows ONE developer within a company to use the components, to obtain free updates and priority email support. A single developer license is NOT transferable to another developer within the company or to a developer from another company.
- A small team license allows TWO developers within one company to use the components, obtain free updates and priority email support. A small team license is NOT transferable to other developers than the 2 originally assigned developers.
- A site license allows an unlimited number of developers within the company holding the license to use the components for commercial application development and to obtain free updates for a full version cycle and priority email support.
Can the registered version of VCL components be used with different Delphi or C++Builder versions?The registered version can be simultaneously installed for multiple IDEs. The components can as such be used simultaneously from multiple Delphi versions or from both Delphi and C++Builder IDEs.
Can the registered version of components be used on multiple machines?Yes, the registered version can be installed on multiple machines. If a single developer license is purchased, the registered version can be installed on all machines owned by and exclusively used by the developer holding the license.
How long do I get free updates & free support?When a TMS VCL Subscription/ TMS Component Studio is purchased, free updates & free priority support is provided for 2 years. For separate components, free updates & free support is provided for a full version cycle or maximum 2 years. This means that when a product is purchased at version X.Y, all updates before the release of version X+1.Y are free. For example, if version 2.4 is purchased, the last free update is v3.3 or the version when available at the end of the 2 year period.
Are discounts offered for purchasing an upgrade after a registration has expired?Yes, we offer discounts of 40% and more for renewals of registrations within 1 month of expiry. The discount upgrade offers are shown on the "My account" page after login on our website.
When the offer is not taken 1 month after expiry, the discount is reduced to +/- 20% discount and stays available on the 'My account' page.
