Developer Distribution License Information

NOTE We have changed our license structure. As a consequence we have 2 types of Developer Distribution Licenses. Troi Activator Plug-in, Troi Dialog Plug-in, Troi Encryptor Plug-in, Troi File Plug-in, Troi Grabber Plug-in, Troi Serial Plug-in, Troi Text Plug-in and Troi URL Plug-in have a different license that is described on the New 2.0 Developer License page. All other plug-ins fall under the license described below.

For all other plug-ins we have a flat fee cross-platform developer license. This license allows you to include our plug-ins with ALL databases or FileMaker solutions that your company sells (both regular FileMaker Pro databases and databases bound with the binder from the FileMaker Developer Edition).

  • Cross-platform: The license allows you to include our plug-in both on Mac OS and on Windows systems.
  • Flat fee: No matter how much databases you sell you pay only once.

Please note: Certain restrictions apply: you need to use the built-in registration function of the plug-in. This enables the plug-in only for your database. See the plug-in developer folder for instructions on how to implement this.

1.1 Software License.

Troi Automatisering hereby grants to the Licensee, a non-exclusive, non-transferable license (the "License") to use and distribute computer program modules (the "Troi Software"), for the sole purpose of incorporating the Troi Software into the Licensee's own computer software (the "Licensee's Software") and to copy and to distribute the Troi Software, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

2.1 Use of Troi Software.

Licensee may incorporate the Troi Software in its software products. Licensee shall not rent or lease the software, nor shall it modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Troi Software.

2.2. Distribution Rights

Licensee may distribute the Troi Software to its customers (herein called End Users), subject to the following restrictions: the licensee must not modify or remove copyright notices or serial numbers or signatures that may be included within the software or displayed on the screen.

2.3.1 Distributing with built-in registration

Troi Software has a built-in registration function, as described in the documentation. The licensee can distribute a database with a registered version of the Troi Software provided the Licensee properly uses this built-in registration function of the Troi Software. The registration information must be kept in a password protected database, thus excluding the end user from the registration information.

2.3.2 Disclosing registration information

a) The solution runs under a full copy of FileMaker Pro.
