I'm ready to buy my Xojo License (the $299 Desktop One), but just wanted to confirm something.
I use xojo at work on a windows Machine, and at home a Mac.
How many computers can I put my license on? One? I've seen somewhere up to 3??
You can develop on Mac or Windows but a Lite license allows you to compile for only one platform. for example, Xojo Lite Mac allows you to work on a Ma or a PC but you can only build Mac apps.
If you want to build for Mac and Windows, you can get a Xojo Desktop license *or* Xojo Lite Mac + Xojo Lite Windows. Let me know if you have questions anytime at email@example.com too :)
@Dana B Xojo Lite licenses can be installed on 1 machine each.
Can you please clarify the Machine part ? I remember I had this issue a while ago I had 2 accounts in my Mac and apparently for each account you register your license is getting into account even on the same machine.
I'll have to test again and confirm . and it's for the pro part not lite.
@Aurelian N Xojo defines "machine" as "installation". If you have 2 users on the same machine and you want to compile on both, then you need 2 lite license, use Desktop license (with 2 activations) or use 2 of the 3 PRO activations.
If you go to the Xojo Store page and you hover over Pro Plus 2x Activations it says "Install your license on up to 6 devices". Again not perfectly clear.
For me, where English is not my first language, it makes sense to think as "I can install 1 license per Xojo installation". If I only have a Mac with VM for Windows and Linux and I want to work and build on each one, I will need 3 licenses (or activations). Either 3 lite licenses or 1 Pro license that allows 3 activations. I think of this as 1 device but 3 Xojo installations (on Mac, Windows VM and Linux VM).
You only need a license if you need to build from the Xojo installation that you are working on. I have several computers and VM, in most, I only use the remote debugger. I have 2 users on my main Mac both with 1 activation and a Windows laptop with the 3rd activation. If for some reason I need to build on another computer, I need to go to my Xojo online account, remove one of the activations and assign it to the other computer.
