Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Licensing
For the most part Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 has the same licensing model as Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008.
- Internal and external client application redistribution is free.
- Internal redistribution of server applications is free.
The only change with this transition relates to external distribution of server applications.
A server application is any application (WPF, Webform, Winform) where the runtime engine is integrated in a way that allows more than one user to access the rutnime.
Distributing server applications now requires additional licensing. The Crystal Reports Developer Advantage license provides the additional licensing required.
All other scenarios continue to be free for Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010.
