  • Customers with a current annual developer agreement are entitled to upgrade to VDF 6.0 component free. When your current annual developer agreement expires you can choose either to renew your subscription by buying a renewal or continue your application with your current version without the benefit of having any new software upgrades.
  • Users that use Standard or Viewer component can upgrade to the VDF component easily giving their application a whole new prospect for the future.

VectorDraw Developer Framework LicVAL: One license required per web server. By purchasing one developer license you get also 1 LicVal without any additional cost. Every other web server (for example you want to have two or more servers like, etc) will require a separate LicVal License.

Please note: Every VectorDraw client has only 1 expiration date which is the date of the initial purchase. If you delay or pre-buy a renewal , or if you add additional licenses to your subscription the expiration date remains the same and the newly added licenses alter the renewal price.

For example if you initially purchase a 4 Developer License on January 1st 2016 you would need to purchase a 4 Developer Annual Renewal License on January 1st 2017 to continue using the software.
If you then purchased an Additional 1 Developer Annual License on March 1st 2017 it takes your total license count to 5 and you would need to purchase a 5 Developer Annual Renewal License on January 1st 2018.
