Q: Do all developers should be licensed or just the one working directly using the e-iceblue components?
A: All developers who are working on the project need to be licensed
Q: Can the licensed components be used on multiple machines ?
A: Yes, the licensed version can be installed on multiple machines. If a single developer license is purchased, the licensed version can be installed on all machines owned by and exclusively used by the developer holding the license.
Q: How long can I get free updates & free support ?
A: Free updates & free priority support is provided for a full version cycle or maximum 1 years. if version 3.5 is purchased, the last free update is v4.4 or the version when available at the end of the 1 year period.
Q: Why Renew Subscription ?
A: When you buy a license you get a full year's subscription to software updates. When your subscription is near to its end, we send you an email to remind you to renew your subscription. Without a subscription you can still use the product and get support, but you do not get new features or fixes. If you have a problem that requires a hot fix but do not have a current subscription, you will have to renew before you can benefit from the fix. You can renew your subscription either when we send you a reminder, or at any other time. If your subscription expires in December and you buy a renewal early, say in September, the renewal adds twelve months to your subscription from the expiry date. Renewing an existing subscription is cheaper than renewing an expired subscription. While your subscription is still running, adding a year to the subscription costs 60% of the current product price. To re-activate an expired subscription costs 75% of the current product price.
Q: What will happen for a license beyond 1 year?
Can our existing clients continue using the solution without having to purchase a new license?
A: yes, your clients can continue using the solution without having to purchase a new license
Can we continue deploying to new customers?
A: You can still use the license and of course including deploy to new customers. But the service of free product update and priority support is not available until you renew your license.
Will the 'Evaluation Warning' messages reappear?
A: After one year, if you download and install the latest version, the 'Evaluation Warning' messages will appear. If you keep using the old version, it won't.
Do we need to buy a new license to continue any development (i.e. do we simply lose support & access to any new versions)?
A: We offer life-time free technical support but 1 year free update service only. We recommend you renew your license because some new functions/features/hotfix can only be used in new version. And after renew your license you will have our free priority technical support.
Q: I have purchased Spire.Doc and Spire.XLS, but when I use them in the same project, it failed. How to use your Spire.XLS and Spire.Doc in the same project?
A: Please download our Spire.Office to get the dlls of Spire.Doc and Spire.Xls. Please refer to how to apply two license files to use Spire.Office normally by applying the license files you purchased.
