OPC Router interoperates with a wide range of systems, using a variety of standards and technologies. As changes happen in those standards and technologies, and Windows operating systems are updated, you want your system remain resilient to change.
All new OPC Router perpetual license purchases include 1 year of support & maintenance to help you achieve that goal. Support & Maintenance can be renewed on an annual basis and can be co-termed with other product licenses you have purchased from Software Toolbox.
If you choose subscription licensing, then support & maintenance is included in the annual subscription renewal.
We strive to keep our support and maintenance agreement renewal costs low in absolute US$ terms. To do that, there are things that are not included in the price of the agreements. Our professional services can address some needs in the items not included, or we may refer you to a member of our system integrator partner network for other paid services. Contact us to discuss your options.
The product licensing will NOT stop OPC Router from working just because support is expired.
However, if you are not on the most current version, we cannot guarantee that the product will work with newer Windows Versions, Windows Updates, if you are not on the most current version of the product.
Keeping an active support and maintenance agreement helps you ensure compatibility with operating systems and compilers. Additionally, active support and maintenance provides access to our support team if/when any issues require assistance.
The demo is the full product. When you put an OPC Router project into runtime, it will stop operating after 2 hours and have to be restarted. Purchase of a license will remove the restriction.
