Licensing can be complicated - long documents written by lawyers can make it difficult to understand what the licensing terms are. We have created this page to help understand, in non-legal terms, how LightSpeed is licensed. You should still check the end user license agreement and if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact us.
Licensing is per developer
This is similar to the pricing model used by many component vendors. If you have, for example, three developers working on a solution then you would need to acquire a license for each developer.
What is the difference between versions?
Express is free and allows up to 8 model classes in your domain model.
1 Developer license has no restrictions on model size.
Source code can be included at the time of purchase if you wish to obtain a copy.
Can I get the source code?
Yes! Source code can be included when purchasing your license and is included per developer.
Do I need to purchase a license for my build server?
No! We like to encourage good development practices so you do not need to purchase an additional license for your build server.
What are my support options when I purchase?
Mindscape provides an online forum which is actively monitored and has a growing community of other LightSpeed users who can help if you have questions. Customer support issues raised either through the forum or through the customer support email address are prioritised.
Do I need to buy all my licenses up front?
No, you can purchase additional licenses as you add people to your team however we offer bulk purchasing discounts for purchases of 3 licenses or more which may make it advantageous to purchase up front.
Can I download the license?
The latest version of the LightSpeed license is included in every version of LightSpeed. Simply download the free edition and you will find the most current license in the Start Menu, Mindscape, LightSpeed folder.
