CUSTOMER shall mean the original customer (either individual or company) who purchased a license.
SOFTWARE shall mean the right to use WINDEV purchased by the CUSTOMER for the current version and for any upgraded version, unless this upgraded version contains a license agreement that would entirely enforces.

1. License

This user license is granted to the CUSTOMER in exchange for the payment of a purchase price.
This SOFTWARE shall be used on a single computer by a single person at a time. The SOFTWARE is considered as being used as soon as it is loaded in the "computer memory" (also called RAM).

Reproducing the documentation, in part or in full, is strictly forbidden.

4. Use

The CUSTOMER agrees to use the SOFTWARE only for the purpose for which it is intended. The CUSTOMER shall not modify, or try to modify, nor disassemble, or try to disassemble this SOFTWARE. The CUSTOMER shall not remove (or try to remove) the copyright mentions that may be displayed and/or included in the SOFTWARE.

The SOFTWARE shall not be rented, leased or shared.

It is FORBIDDEN to use this SOFTWARE to create or distribute any development tool, software for creating applications, program generator, or any software of a type similar to the SOFTWARE itself. Contact us if you have any questions.
The functions for generating JAVA code can only be used to create a stand-alone APPLICATION.

The code generated by the SOFTWARE shall not be re-used in other software or tools for software creation. The code generated by this feature shall not be included in a software (freeware or shareware) that could be a competitor of WINDEV or WEBDEV, in part or in full.

The photographs, illustrations and images contained in the examples, templates, skins and skin templates can only be used in their initial implantation. Any use, reproduction, representation, adaptation or copy, in full or in part, in any format, by any existing or forthcoming process, is forbidden.

The images and the animations available from the image catalog must be exclusively used in the APPLICATIONS developed with the SOFTWARE. These images shall not be sold or distributed. The use in products or sites other than the APPLICATION is forbidden.

The images cannot be separated from the APPLICATION that is using them.

5. Royalties

The CUSTOMER in possession of a duly recorded SOFTWARE license has the rights to distribute the execution modules required to run the stand-alone programs, for the sole purpose of running the programs developed with the SOFTWARE.

The created APPLICATION shall not contain more than 10% (ten per cent) of dynamically compiled code and/or UMC code. If an APPLICATION contains more than 10% of dynamically compiled code and/or more than 10% of UMC code, a WINDEV license is required for each computer where the APPLICATION is installed.

The APPLICATION shall not be a plain duplication or recompilation of the modules and examples supplied with the SOFTWARE.
Contact PC SOFT for any further information.

The HFSQL engine can be distributed with any APPLICATION developed with WINDEV, providing that is it used by more than 50% (fifty per cent) by one or more WINDEV and/or WEBDEV applications. 50% represents the number of features actually used in the application.
For any other use from another language or by another method, a SOFTWARE LICENSE is required for each server that is using HFSQL, in a version at least equal to the HFSQL version used (for example, 24 to use HFSQL Client/Server).
If HFSQL is used on a single computer (laptop, PC, ...), this computer is considered as being a server.
Therefore, if HFSQL is mainly used by a software not developed by WINDEV (or WEBDEV), it CANNOT be distributed.

"REPORTS AND QUERIES" can be installed with each one of your APPLICATIONS, providing that each application contains more than 50% of the features used on the database(s) used. If an APPLICATION represents less than 50% of the features used on the database(s) used, a license of "REPORTS AND QUERIES" must be purchased for each user computer.
It is FORBIDDEN to use "REPORTS AND QUERIES" in a simple application part of one or more other applications not developed with the SOFTWARE, in the only purpose to get a free version of a software for creating reports and queries. Therefore, "REPORTS AND QUERIES" can be freely used with an APPLICATION developed with the SOFTWARE and respecting the above-mentioned rule of 50%.
Contact PC SOFT for any further information.
