License requirements

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am a small-time application builder on Labview, I have tried to find answers to the following two questions a lot on the NI site but could not get any definite yes or no answer

So here are the questions

1) I know that DSC module requires run-time license on the end-users computer, my question is, that if I use the datasocket binding on the controls/indicators property box and assign a couple of OPC tags (like 20-30 max) and not use the shared variable engine, do I still have to get a dsc runtime license, or is there anything like OPC tag-based license for the end-users PC?

2) Does database connectivity toolset and report generation toolkit also require runtime license on end-user PC's?

This KB article is a good overview of what you require for DSC based on the functionality your application will use.

As for DBCT and RGT - you should only need the standard LabVIEW run-time (no license).

If you're not using any of the DSC features, you should consider using Datasocket or the shared variables themselves to connect directly to the OPC server. That would require changing the code, but should not require any run-time licenses.
