Difference between 1D and 2D Licenses

This is relevant for bar code software only: The license keys are differentiated according to the supported set of bar code symbologies.

1D License

This license generates and prints all one-dimensional bar code symbologies (like Code 39, Code 128, UPC, 2/5...) and all linear (non stacked) versions of the EAN/UCC RSS symbology.

2D License

This license generates and prints all barcodes. In addition to linear barcodes it includes all 2D barcodes and multi-row bar code symbologies (like PDF417, MaxiCode, DataMatrix, QR-Code, GS1 DataBar and EAN/UCC RSS Composite).

A 2D license includes automatically all 1D bar codes.

Single or Workstation License

This license permits you to use the Software on exactly one computer system. The license key is coordinated with the System-ID of the target system. It is not possible to use the Software on another computer system in an unrestricted way.

If the computer is changed or exchanged, then you will receive a free replacement key. A Single License must not be used in server applications like Web-Servers or Citrix Servers.

Where I can find the System-ID?

Workgroup License

This license permits the use of the Software on 10 computers and with 10 concurrent users within one site (with a postal address) of an enterprise (e. g. factory, branch...). Passing the Software license key to third parties or to other locations of the same enterprise is not permitted (also not as part of your own applications).

Companies owning multiple locations (e.g. multinational companies) need either an Enterprise license or additional Single, Workgroup, Office or Site licenses.

Office License

This license permits the use of the Software on 100 computers and with 100 concurrent users within one site (with a postal address) of an enterprise (e. g. factory, branch...). Passing the Software license key to third parties or to other locations of the same enterprise is not permitted (also not as part of your own applications).

Companies owning multiple locations (e.g. multinational companies) need either an Enterprise license or additional Single, Workgroup, Office or Site licenses.

Site License

This license permits the use of the Software on several computers within one site (however limited to a maximum of 250 concurrent installations or 250 concurrent users per license). Passing the Software license key to third parties or to other locations of the same enterprise is not permitted (also not as part of your own applications).

Companies owning multiple locations (e.g. multinational companies) need either multiple Site-Licenses or a Developer-License.

A Site License must not be used in web server applications - use a Web License in this case.

Developer License

The owner of a Developer-License can redistribute the Software as part of his application to third parties like customers and/or other sites of a company. A Developer License is bound to a single developer. Each developer who is actively working with the Software product needs a developer license. A Developer- License is limited to 10000 redistributions or 10000 possible end users - whichever is higher.

You are allowed to provide the product within your application to a third party as well as to other sites of your own company. „Wrapping“ is not permitted!

TBarCode/X: Developer licenses are intended for redistribution to third party, development of in-house applications is not allowed (we refer to the other available license variants instead).

Web or Server License

If you would like to use the Software on a (web) server you need a web (or server) license (if applicable). Such a license permits the use of the Software on one server for internet-, intranet and other server based applications. The number of total users (not concurrent users!) per license is limited to 10000.

Each production server instance needs one license, this is also true on virtual machines. For users of TBarCode: the ConvertToStream() functions are licensed only with a web or server license.

Enterprise or World License

An Enterprise License (also called World License) permits the use of the Software on several (or all) sites of a company. There are no restrictions concerning the number of installations and users. The term enterprise comprises each legal unity (including subsidiaries) which owns more than 50 percent of the shares.

Other License Types

There are other licenses available, which vary according to the Software product. All available licenses are listed in the price list and in the license terms.

No Royalties

TEC-IT does not charge royalty fees, all licenses are one-time costs.
