Each developer building applications requires a Developer License. Please note that each
Aquaforest OCR SDK
Bundle purchase includes one developer license and one server runtime license. Additional
developer licenses can
be purchased for multiple developers and significant discounts are available - please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Additional Server Runtime Licenses
In most cases all that is required is the purchase of a single developer license bundle which
includes a server
runtime license. However, if additional runtime servers are required then each requires a
runtime license. A
Server is defined as a physical or virtual machine that is used for automated unattended
processing or to provide
services to multiple end users.
Desktop Runtime Licenses
For use within a single organization, the purchase of a development license bundle allows
deployment to an
unlimited number of desktops*. Please contact email@example.com
if you have additional requirements.
"Desktop" is defined as an "end-user" personal computer that may have Applications installed
that utilize the
Software. The Applications must NOT support unattended document processing. No more than 10 page
images may be
processed without requiring human intervention.
*For Aquaforest OCR only if you require Desktop Runtime Licensing for the Extended OCR please
Unlimited Runtime Licenses
In cases where the OCR SDK is being used as a component within a business application that will
be sold to
multiple end customers then the Unlimited License Bundle may be the most suitable license. This
unlimited number of Developers & Runtimes for one business application.
The PDF Toolkit is licensed per developer.
There are two types of license:
Standard Developer - this allows one developer to use the toolkit and to distribute their
applications* to any number of machines within a single organization.
OEM Developer - this allows one developer to use the toolkit and to distribute any number of
their applications* to other organizations
*Applications - Note that applications cannot be developer tools or libraries and must add significant primary
functionality over and above that provided by the toolkit. If in doubt let firstname.lastname@example.org have details of
the application you are planning.
