Hi,

I have questions about Licensing/Keycode Activation.

Last 3 months our we purchased Crystal Reports XI Professional. But i received 5 CD's. 2 for Crystal Reports XI Professional English and it has ofcourse the Product Activation Number Full. And there are another 3 CD's for Crystal Report XI Server which also have Product Activation Number but below states that Temporary Keycode Please register to receive full product action keycode.

No my question is:

1. What is the use of Crystal Report XI Server?
2. Is this a trial version?
3. Can i used this in production environment?

Please enlighten me about this licensing stuff.

Thanks

It is a product to help deliver reports to small groups of users.

No.  Aslong as you register Crystal and Server.  You will receive a key to make it a full version.  It is limited to 5 licenses (user).

>>3. Can i used this in production environment?
Yes.

Just to expand a little on mlmcc's answer:

Note that the 5 license limit isn't a user license, it's actually a CAL so the limit is to 5 concurrent users - therefore you can use this in a production environment where the usage is light and you won't have more than five people simultaneously viewing reports.  You can use this initially as a platform to deliver reports and if the usage grows to the point that users are locked out (no licenses available) then you can consider upgrading at that time.
