VS2005 寫的Crystal Report在升級至VS2012後會有什麼授權問題嗎 RRS feed

  • 一般討論

  • 手上有一些VS2005的winform及webfrom的專案有用到Crystal Report

    現在公司有買新的VS MOLP,可以灌VS2008/2010/2012其中一個版本

    我是想灌2012,不過都找不到相關的授權資訊能說明VS2005 寫的Crystal Report在升級至VS2012後的授權問題

    想請教大家是否有相關升級經驗可以分享。

    謝謝~

  • Microsoft網站這樣寫:

    Microsoft only supports setup and installation for the Crystal Reports products that are included in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003, in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, and in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. All other support is provided by the vendor who developed Crystal Reports, not by Microsoft.

    所以若升級至VS2012, 應該需要向廠商購買Crystal Report產品與授權

  • 我查了一下SAP網站上的授權訊息,似乎是公司內部使用就免費

    (我這樣的理解正確嗎?)

    Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Licensing
      
    Licensing Summary
    For the most part Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 has the same licensing model as Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008.
    Internal and external client application redistribution is free.
    Internal redistribution of server applications is free.

    License Change
    The only change with this transition relates to external distribution of server applications.
    A server application is any application (WPF, Webform, Winform) where the runtime engine is integrated in a way that allows more than one user to access the rutnime.
    Distributing server applications now requires additional licensing.  The Crystal Reports Developer Advantage license provides the additional licensing required.
    All other scenarios continue to be free for Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010.
    For More Information
    Licensing for almost all Crystal Reports scenarios, including commercial hosting scenarios is covered in this whitepaper.  This provides easy-to-read, summary information of whats in the various product End User License Agreements (EULAs).

    Client Application 及Server Application 用在Employees and Contractors是Free

    除了有money changes hands in exchange for application access的Commercial Hosting Service

    Client Application

    The runtime engine is installed on the client machine. All report processing is local to that machine

    Server Application

    The runtime engine is integrated in a way that allows more than one user to access the engine either directly or indirectly.
    Client applications installed using Windows terminal servers (like Citrix or Microsoft Remote Desktop) are considered server applications

    Commercial Hosting Service

    When money changes hands in exchange for application access, then a server application is considered part of a commercial hosting service.
    This is not a new restriction. It appears as restriction against ‘service bureau’ usage in licenses prior to Crystal Reports 2008 SP2. We modernized the language in Crystal Reports 2008 SP2 to refer to the more common ‘commercial hosting service’.

  • 我看的意思是:只有Server程式才收錢, 包括server application is any application (WPF, Webform, Winform)及Distributing server applications, 其他免費使用
