Licensing for end users

Post by richardwein » Mon 16 Apr 2018 09:28

Hello. I'm unclear about the licensing arrangements for Excel add-ins. According to your FAQ:

"If you have the Devart license, you do not need to pay any additional fee for deploying or distributing your software to end users."

Does this apply to Devart's Excel add-ins? Presumably the end users will need to install the relevant add-in. Can they just use the free version?

This information is correct for data providers and drivers. Excel Add-ins licensing works in other way. Each user that will use Excel Add-in for SQL Server must have a Devart Excel Add-in for SQL Server license. More details can be found in the License.rtf file which is installed together with Excel Add-ins.
