MS SQL server CAL license
Posted on 2001-06-17
I would like to get some advise regarding software license issue.
I have create several crystal reports and have been compiled into exe file. Those reports retrieve data from MS sql server database via ODBC.
User will use VB UI (exe) to point those crystal reports(exe) which are located in server.
In this scenario, do we need any software license ?
To my opinion, VB and crystal report licenses are not require because those are in exe format. But do we need MS SQL Client Access License as those crystal reports just retrieve data via ODBC?
