ThinkGeo UI licenses are required to run applications that depend on them. All licenses are created and managed through an application called
ThinkGeo Product Center, downloaded here. A free ThinkGeo account is required.
The first time you use one of the ThinkGeo NuGet packages, your browser will open to prompt you to register for a ThinkGeo account. Once your account has been registered, download and run Product Center to begin your evaluation. This allows you to try all of our products for a period of time to see if it meets your needs. During this time, you can develop your application so long as the debugger is attached. The screen may be watermarked to remind you how many days you have left during your evaluation.
Each developer that is involved with developing against the mapping portion of the project needs to be licensed separately. After purchasing a license for the developer, they are allowed to run, without watermarks or expiration, the application as long as it is attached to the debugger.
Once a developer license has been purchased you can activate it through Product Center for a specific developer. If you need to move that license in the future, you can deactivate the license through Product Center and reassign it.
Runtime licenses are required in order to run your mobile application in either debug or production mode. See Deployment for full details.
There are no limitations to the number of runtime licenses you can generate. Runtime licenses created by evaluating developers will expire at the same time that the developer's evaluation expires.
What happens if my evaluation expires?¶
If you find that your evaluation is expiring or has expired, you can contact sales and we can work with you to possibly extend your trial.
