Developer SDK and Programming Interface


Developer License Information

Developer License enables developers to distribute a special version of their product with all their applications without paying any royalties and is for integration and royalty-free distribution of developers' applications. The applications can be for in-house use or external distribution without limitations. Web servers based applications developed with PDF4U drivers running on one server require one developer license of PDF4U.

Here "special version" means the entire set of the core drivers that presents all the functionalities of the full driver excluding any user interface and installs itself and then works completely silently. This special version will only work with the licensed developer's application.

This license is given on a per company basis, non-withstanding the number of developers or applications the licensee has.

The product is distributed as DLL and EXE files working silently. Installation is handled by a silent installer automatically. All that is need is to copy the redistributable DLLs as well as the silent installer program in any directory and then load the silent installer from your applications or scripts.


Purchase a Developer License


The developer license is non-refundable. You should evaluate PDF4U
DEMO version thoroughly and read SDK Manual carefully before you decides to purchase a developer's license.
