Dynamic-CD Licenses

Each CD you produce containing the Dynamic-CD runtime carries an encrypted License identifying you or your company as the registered License holder. Please ensure you purchase an appropriate License for the Dynamic-CDs you intend to produce.

Dynamic-CD is a professional tool for CD publishers. The Professional License allows the production of an unlimited number of CDs for a single content owner during one year. The Professional License allows a range of customisations.

If you want to produce a limited number of CDs and do not need to customise Dynamic-CD, we provide a range of other Licenses - Lite, Personal, Standard, and Gold. These Licenses (other than the Professional License) give an initial splash screen saying "Dynamic-CD is starting up". To decide which License is right for your use, check the table below.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need a new License for each production run?
Do I need a new License for each website I put on CD?
No - The License specifies the number of CDs that you can distribute containing the Dynamic-CD software. You can produce CDs with content from any number of production runs or websites so long as the number of CDs distributed is less than the number specified in the License purchased. However, if you hold a Professional License, the content of the production runs or websites must belong to a single owner.

If I have the Personal Subscription License, can I make as many copies as I want of 200 different websites? Or can I make copies of different websites but the total number of copies can't be more than 200?
The total number of CDs containing the Dynamic-CD software that you can distribute is limited to 200. You cannot make as many copies as you like from 200 different websites - you can produce a maximum of 200 CDs total.

Clarifications

Username - password limitations
A maximum of 5 Username - Password combinations can be set with Lite and Personal Licenses.

Number of CDs per year
Each License specifies the number of CDs carrying the Dynamic-CD runtime that can be distributed to your customers in the year following the License purchase. At the end of each year, a new License must be purchased.

The Dynamic-CDs you produce will themselves never expire - what expires is your right to produce Dynamic-CDs.

Number of content owners
The Dynamic-CDs produced under a Professional Subscription License must be for the direct use of you or your company. The individual or company identified as the owner of the content of the CD - as distinct from the producer of the CD - will be required to have held a valid Professional Subscription License on the date of distribution of the CD containing the Dynamic-CD runtime.

If you act as consultant for third parties, then an appropriate License should be purchased for each third party (content owner) involved. In the special case where your use of Dynamic-CD is solely for the benefit of a single third party, and not for the benefit of you or your company, then only a single License is required.

Startup Splash Screen
Dynamic-CD shows an initial dialog Dynamic-CD is starting up for a few seconds during the startup phase. If you require to customise Dynamic-CD by removing the initial startup dialog, by removing the Dynamic-CD icon, or otherwise, you will need to purchase a Professional License.

External object support
The Lite License does not allow external objects to be created using the Server.CreateObject method. This means that with the Lite License, you will not be able to access the file system with the Scripting.FileSystemObject, nor work with databases through the ADODB.Connection object.

Encryption limitations
The Lite and Personal Licenses limit the number of files that can be encrypted or password protected. You can create CDs with more than 50 script files but files above the limit will not be encrypted. You can create CDs with more than 50 non-script files but files above the limit will not be password protected.

File count limitations
The Lite and Personal Licenses limit the total number of files that can be stored on the CD to 200 files. The CD storage limit of 200 files is not a limit on the number of files that can be served (the same file is typically served many times). If you want to produce larger CDs, please buy a Standard, Gold or Professional Subscription License.
