Files to be Included With Your Application

Files for redistribution are installed by the LEADTOOLS setup. For more information on the installation directory structure, refer to Installation Directory.

Legal Notices

Note: You may not copy or redistribute any of the following files without obtaining the proper license. In some cases, the license is included with your initial purchase of LEADTOOLS. In other cases, you must obtain a license from a third party or enter into a royalty agreement with LEAD to obtain the proper license. For these special licensing situations, see the notes below accompanying the specific file.

Note: You may not distribute the header files with your application, and you may not provide software development capabilities in your application.

The LEADTOOLS kernel module (for example Leadtools.dll for .NET) is required for applications.

Note: LEADTOOLS binaries for .NET require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Runtime.
The Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable Package cannot be installed on some versions of Windows. For supported versions, see Choosing a Deployment Method and Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows . The Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Runtime also requires the Windows Universal CRT library, which is distributed as part of Windows 10. For information on how to redistribute the universal CRT, see Introducing the Universal CRT.

Note: The file names are the same for Win32 and x64. However, the actual binaries are different. For more information about distributing the Microsoft C/C++ runtime files, refer to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/productinfo/2017-redistribution-vs.

The following table summarizes the files you must include with your distribution. Most files in the table are optional. These files are referred to as "Redistributables" in the License Agreement.

Rendering Across Different Platforms

Choosing which draw engine to use in an application depends, in part, on which platforms the application is targeted for deployment:

For more information, refer to LEADTOOLS Draw Engine and Multi-Platform Considerations and RasterImage and GDI/GDI+.

NuGet Packages

LEADTOOLS provides .NET developers with NuGet packages support as an additional means for obtaining the latest LEADTOOLS toolkit binaries. For details on the available selection, refer to the following resources:
