License Components. There are two major components to LEADTOOLS SDK licensing: (i) the Development License, which covers the use of the LEAD SDK in the development of an end-user application and (ii) the Deployment License, which covers the copying, distribution, and deployment of LEADTOOLS intellectual property as part of the resulting application.

  • Development License. A development seat license is required for each developer installing and using the LEADTOOLS SDK. Discounts are available for additional development licenses. Team licenses, floating licenses, and site licenses are also available. Please inquire at sales@leadtools.com regarding these particular cases. For more information regarding Development Licenses, see online licensing help.
  • Deployment License. A deployment license is required to copy and deploy LEAD's intellectual property with the end-user software you develop with LEADTOOLS. LEAD offers several standard licensing models, including licensing for stand-alone desktops, named users, mobile device user, concurrent users, servers, hosted services, and deployment to the cloud. In addition to the standard deployment licenses, LEAD offers annual and multi-year quantity-unlimited licenses, site and enterprise licenses, revenue share, and other license options. These special licenses are handled on a case-by-case basis. Please inquire at oemsales@leadtools.com regarding these.
