We license DevForce on a per-developer basis. Each developer who uses our DevForce business objects must obtain a license and may install on more than one machine providing the software is used by the same developer.
Each edition of DevForce Express is limited to a maximum of 10 entity types. DevForce Express provides a trial license, allowing the use of the software for the sole purpose of evaluating functionality and performance and may not be used in a commercial or production environment.
The purchase price provides you with a perpetual product license and a 12-month subscription to product updates that includes Standard or Priority Support.
Priority Support is the best option for professional developers. With Priority Support, we provide email and telephone support with senior support engineers (up to 20 incidents per year), escalation to product architects, and access to alpha and beta software builds. Additionally, all Priority Support tickets are addressed ahead of Standard Support tickets in our support queue. See support levels.

Yes, customers of DevForce WinClient and DevForce Silverlight who purchased the Priority Support option are eligible to upgrade to DevForce Universal at a discounted rate. Contact email@example.com for more information.
You may continue to use the last version of the product you acquired before the expiration of the license. You will no longer have access to new DevForce releases, nor Standard or Priority Support.
