The basic principle is very simple:
In all versions of Control Web 8 without a license
(development, runtime, network runtime, express runtime) the
application runs for 30 minutes.
Editing the application in the development version requires
no license. Any driver or VisionLab can be used, no
license is required.
Start and run the application
To run the application permanently:
When the application starts, the system creates a list of used
components. If a valid license is available for each component,
the application will run without restriction.
If no license is available for component or license is not
valid (for example due to expiration), the running of the
application will be limited to 30 minutes. The user is notified
about this by "operating system bubble" and in the system log
If a Control Web Express license is entered in the system and
the running application uses instruments that are not available in
the Express version. The application will run as it is not
licensed (express license is not valid for this application) and
will run for 30 minutes. A similar situation occurs when a network
application runs with a license for a non-network runtime.
The license must be available throughout the run. For example,
if the license is on a USB key, the key must be connected
throughout the run. It is not possible to change or add licenses
at runtime. If the application has been running for 30 minutes. It
is no possible to add a license during the application run. The
application must be restarted when the license is completed.
