Does Highcharts Gantt JS require online / offline activation?

There is no mandatory license key associated with the software, and no activation is needed. The License is solely a legal document and consists of two parts: The Terms and Conditions and the License Statement.

Can I buy an old product version?

Highsoft does not offer old versions for sale directly. However, purchasing a new license entitles you to download and use any previous version of the corresponding product for no additional fee.

Can a license be transferred from one developer to another?

The developer license is not personal and applies to the number of seats, not the individual. You need a license for every developer who will be working with the software, i.e. the Highcharts Gantt JS 5 Developer License allows for up to 5 developers to work on Highcharts Gantt JS. If a sixth developer will be working with the software, you need to purchase an additional seat. However, if one of the current 5 leaves the company, and is replaced, you will be covered by the 5 developer seats.
