DataFlex Studio Licensing Information
DataFlex Studio is a complete Windows application development toolkit including IDE, compiler, debugger, application framework, class library, database utilities and documentation.
For businesses, commercial licences must be purchased to use DataFlex Studio to build and run applications. For personal, non-commercial use, you can download and evaluate a free Personal Edition.
A DataFlex Studio licence is required for each individual developer that uses the software.
A Commercial Studio licence includes…
- A 3-User DataFlex Windows Client with Connectivity Kits for internal development, testing and internal production use with applications within the Studio user’s company. Client Engines for deployment to third parties must be purchased separately.
- A distributable Evaluation Windows Client to enable commercial software developers to freely distribute trial copies of their application products.
- A DataFlex WebApp Server for development and testing use only. As of 17.1, production use of the included DataFlex WebApp Server is not allowed.

Windows Client Licensing Information
DataFlex Windows Client runs application software developed with DataFlex Studio. Windows Clients include the application execution engine, utilities, the DataFlex embedded database and, optionally, database connectivity drivers.
A Windows Client licence is required for each person that uses VDF Windows applications on a standalone PC or in networked configurations. New Windows Clients include a one-year Subscription.
Windows Client Licences
- Multi-User Windows Client licences provide entitlement for a specified number of users to concurrently use DataFlex Client Engine with application software in server based environments. Multi-User Client Engine licences decrease in per-User cost as the number of Users increases. Volume licences are available when quantities of Multi-User Client Engines are required.
