What is the difference between a commercial license and a personal license?
The commercial license is the option for legal entities, including companies, organizations (both for-profit and non-profit) and government. It can be installed by any developer on any machine within a company or organization, provided that the total number of developers using the software at a time does not exceed the number of purchased licenses. See Organizations - Commercial License for more information.
The personal license is the option for individual developers who acquire it using their own funds. It is non-transferable. The product can be installed on different computers, but it cannot be used on those computers at the same time. A personal license is not available to a company, or to an individual who expects reimbursement of the license fee from a company. See Individuals - Personal License for more information.
Both license types include one year of free product upgrades and technical support since the purchase date. For more information, click here.
