PROMOTIC Runtime License

- The runtime license entitles the user to run the application created by the PROMOTIC development environment for unlimited time period on one PC. The runtime license consists of:
- the HW key or
- the HW key supplemented by the extended license file or
- Upgrading to newer PROMOTIC versions can be done for free for the licences not older than 10 years. The free upgrade period of older licences can be extended - see the PmUpgrade10 item.
- In case of the request to extend already purchased runtime licenses by new licenses, the price difference of the runtime licenses has to be paid extra. The extension of the runtime license is performed by sending the license file by email. New runtime licenses can be distributed also by sending new HW key - replacing the old one.
- The customer can either assemble the license
- by selecting components according to his requirements from the menu
- or choose the PmDriverPack package.

BASIC runtime licenses - mandatory

This part of the license can always be purchased for the given application if the application size exceeds the size limit defined for PmFree - Free development environment and a runtime licence of the PROMOTIC system.

The license allows to operate one or more PROMOTIC applications on one PC.

Parts of the basic runtime license are, among others, alarm and event system, trends (i.e. saving and viewing values of selected variables with a timestamp), panels, system of users and permissions, debug tools, security components, etc.


There are 4 basic PROMOTIC runtime licence types - according to the application size:

- PmRtFree - Free runtime licence: size of the application up to 30 variables and 10 graphic panels (without the HW key)
- PmRtLite: size of the application up to 100 variables
- PmRtStandard: size of the application up to 50 000 variables
- PmRtProf: unlimited size of the application

Variables that are counted into the total application size are in objects PmData, PmOpcClientData, PmTrend, PmCommData, PmCommMsg, in obsolete objects PmNumber and PmString and in ExtSubVar data extension.

The number of application variables expresses the extent and complexity of the application. The total number of application variables is the sum of all defined data variables of the application. According to the number of the variables, the licence price is then defined. See Basic runtime licenses and Price list .

The information about current application size can be found in the application editor, in the root object (in the PmRoot object), in the "Object size and licence(s)" configurator.

OPTIONAL runtime licenses:

The basic runtime license can be extended by optional runtime licenses:
- Access to interfaces: PmOPCClient (OPC client), PmDB (database), PmActiveX (ActiveX objects), PmDLL (DLL library)

Provided ActiveX objects PmTable and TrendsView are supplied free of charge with the PROMOTIC system.
