Typical User Licensing
Symbol Factory ActiveX is licensed on a development system/computer basis. This means that you need a license of the
ActiveX control for each development computer that you intend to install the product on. If you are using VB this means you need a license for each computer you plan to develop using Visual Basic on but NOT for
machines you put your compiled EXE on. If you are using Intellution, RSView, Indusoft, etc. this means you need a license for your computers where you plan to run the the development version of your HMI/SCADA
package but not your runtime nodes.
There are no licensing fees for distribution of the runtime of the ActiveX controls, with certain restrictions. Please review the license agreement below for full details.
To purchase a Symbol Factory ActiveX development license contact your local distributor or Software Toolbox.
Volume, OEM, or Site Licensing
If you are a developer of or are creating a configurable HMI package and would like to be able to distribute the control in
development mode with your package or need a site license for a very large number of users, we can arrange for attractive OEM licensing of the product for distribution with your product. Please contact us at
704-849-2773 or by email to discuss your requirements.
