Licensing Instructions

Standard (Royalty-Free) Licensing - Windows

The license will be embedded automatically during compilation. When distributing to other machines, include the executable and the toolkit's .dll, "qtipworksx1220.dll".

After successfully activating this product, the file named qipworksx12key.h in the "include" directory will contain a license string for each component.

Note: Activation checks are made on the developer machine only, not at runtime.

Trial Licensing - Windows

Installing the trial version package allows the components to be used on the machine for 30 days. No additional steps are required to activate a trial license.

Standard (Royalty-Free) Licensing - Linux/macOS

Web-Based Activation (Recommended)

To activate a full version license visit this URL:

You will be prompted to enter your Product Key, and a RuntimeLicense value will be generated.

In your code, assign the value to the RuntimeLicense property of the component. For instance:

component.SetRuntimeLicense("Value From Website");

This provides a license to the component and your application will run without a license prompt on any machine to which it is distributed. Note that each component instance in your code must be assigned a RuntimeLicense value.

Command Line Activation

Alternatively, the install-license application included in the installation may be used. The application is present at [install dir]/install-license/linux/. For instance:

./install-license <key>

After activating the full version license obtain the RuntimeLicense from code. For instance:


After obtaining the RuntimeLicense value assign this to the RuntimeLicense property as described above to license the application for deployment.

Trial Licensing - Linux/macOS

To activate a trial license navigate to the root directory of the installation. You will see an executable "install-license" at the path [install dir]/install-license/linux/. Activate a trial license by running the executable:


The trial license will be downloaded and stored in the .nsoftware folder of the user's home directory (i.e. "~/.nsoftware").

The components may then be used on the machine for 30 days.
