Licensing an STK Engine Application

This topic will help AGI STK Engine technology users better understand what licenses they need to develop and/or deploy custom STK Engine applications in the various operating environments supported by the STK Engine.

STK Engine Runtime Licensing Rules

Development

Developing an STK Engine application requires an STK Basic Edition license and an STK X license. Depending on the capability implemented within the STK Engine application, additional licenses may be required to execute all of the application’s functionality.

Deployment

Deploying an STK Engine application requires that the end user has an STK Engine Runtime license with a valid vendor ID or an STK Basic Edition license with an STK X license. Depending on the capability implemented within the STK Engine application, additional licenses may be required to execute all of the application’s functionality. Deploying to a paying customer requires the customer has a purchased license (STK Professional Edition, STK Engine Basic Runtime, etc.).

Recommendation

Always specify a valid Vendor ID (Application Key) for each STK Engine Runtime control (Globe, Map, Graphics Analysis, etc.). This will help you avoid any potential problems that may arise from using invalid vendor ID in your deployed application.

Obtaining a Deployment License

To obtain a deployment license for an STK Engine application, contact AGI Technical Support by phone or email. Include your Vendor ID with your license request.
