Dear,

My company has plan to change plot controls to ChartFX. (.NET or COM version)

My company's main product is kind of CAE software (based on unmanaged c++),

Making Models, Simulating, and Viewing Results as Plot / Animation etc, and Support VBA or VSTA

(VSTA is next generation of VBA)

With VSTA, users want to make dialogs, add plot controls in dialogs, and customize them.

 

I have some "redistribution license" questions.

1. wrapper issue
If I buy ChartFX for Visual Studio 2005

I saw a runtime license problems such as
Q6101008. Using Chart FX for .NET Windows Forms control from a DLL
Q6101001. How to deploy a WinForms Application when it contains a wrapper object using Chart FX for .NET
Q6101010. How to manually add a Chart FX license to an executable

Is there same license problems if I buy ChartFX Client Server 6.2?


2. VSTA issues

If users want to make/change/customize plot controls in user's dialog,
Which license do I need?
Is there any difference between ChartFX Client Server 6.2 and ChartFX for Visual Studio 2005?

1) All problems you describe have solutions described in the articles.

> Is there same license problems if I buy ChartFX Client Server 6.2?

No. Chart FX Client Server 6.2 is not .NET and therefore follows a different licensing schema. Note that I am talking about the technical aspects of the licensing. If your question is related to the legal uses of it please contact Software FX, sales. This forum is technical in nature.

> Is there any difference between ChartFX Client Server 6.2 and ChartFX for Visual Studio 2005?

Yes ChartFX Client Server 6.2 is a COM product and it is based in an older codebase.  ChartFX for Visual Studio 2005 is a .NET product and it is the latest version containing many enhancements to Chart FX 6.2. For more details you may visit our Web site.
