We have two types of licenses for our commercial products:
- Perpetual License
- One-Year Subscription License
The two licenses work exactly the same, except the subscription license expires after the subscription period, if it is not renewed.
In addition to the product licenses, we also offer a maintenance license which works for the perpetual license by extending its maintenance service.
Our software is licensed on a per-server basis. Each SSIS server that you want to run SSIS packages outside of the development tools (e.g. Visual Studio, BIDS or SSDT-BI) would require a license. For instance, if you need to run the SSIS packages on a scheduled-basis on a server, you must acquire a license for the server.
For the server that you do not need to run SSIS packages outside of the development tools, you will not require a license. You can use the free Developer License, which allows you to run SSIS packages interactively without requiring a commercial license.
For development purposes, you do not need a license since we offer the free Developer License. The free Developer License allows you to run the software interactively within the development tools (e.g. Visual Studio, BIDS, or SSDT-BI) without requiring a license. You can use the free Developer license on any number of systems that you may have, even including your servers.
The maintenance license works for the perpetual license by extending your software's maintenance period when applied or entered.
You need to have a perpetual product license in order to apply the maintenance license. This license is not applicable to the subscription license, since the subscription license comes with free maintenance and upgrade for the entire subscription period. The perpetual license comes with an initial one-year maintenance.
The maintenance license is optional. We will not automatically renew the maintenance license. Although it is optional, we recommend you have this license for you or your client, so you can keep up-to-date with our software at all times.
If you are reinstalling products on the same computer (e.g. following installation of a new operating system), you can re-activate the products using the same product license key, provided that you are using the exact same computer name. This does not affect the number of distinct activations for the license key. To install products on a different server or computer system, you must first deactivate the products on the old system using the Deactivate License tool in the KingswaySoft License Manager program, and then re-activate them on the new server or computer system.
Yes, you can. In order to move the license, you must send us an email to request a deactivation code. You can use the code to deactivate the license from your current system in order to use the same license on your new server or computer system. In your request, please provide us the full license key.
Note that you need to have up-to-date maintenance with us, our licensing system cannot generate a deactivation code if your software maintenance has expired (or the deactivation request will be declined even if a deactivation code was made available to you). Also note that our licensing system has imposed a limit on how many transfers can happen to one license key. The maximum allowed transfers for a license key is two within a maintenance/subscription term (typically one year). When the limit is reached (for instance, the third transfer within a year), we will not be able to offer the license relocation service for the particular license key. In this case, you must acquire a new license.
There is no limit on the total number of transfers you can do with one particular license key, as long as your software maintenance is up to date, and you don't reach the annual limit.
