Licensing for company use RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am wondering whether its possible to buy embedded standard licenses for use within our organisation. We are not designing an embedded product we just desire to use the OS on some of our equipment for a thin client setup. Previous discussions have pretty much informed me that its only available for devices being sold (pre-licensed).

  • You will need the license if you don't want the system to time bomb after 180 days.

  • I know we need licenses, my question is whether they are actually available to purchase in some form of volume agreement.
