Operating Requirements

GdPicture.NET runs on Microsoft Windows operating systems family, it has been proven working on Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows 10 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

GdPicture.NET requires the .NET Framework 4.0 or higher.

GdPicture.NET core is compiled using the AnyCPU Platform target. It basically means that GdPicture.NET will run as 64-bit code when loaded into 64-bit process and 32-bit when loaded into a 32-bit process.



Support FAQ

Please find below answers to the most frequent sales and pre-sales questions asked by our users. This list will be frequently updated, according to your most frequent inquiries.

Activation is a required step associating GdPicture.NET SDK with the computer(s) on which it is installed for development or application build purpose. Activation prevents unauthorized use and protects you against the risks of counterfeit software. An internet connection is necessary for the software activation. Virtual machines mechanism is fully supported, therefore you will be able to use the same license on an unlimited number of virtual machines, at the condition that they are installed in the same computer and used by the same developer.

To activate your GdPicture.NET copy, just start the LicenseManager.exe application located in the installation folder of the software and click the “Register a key” button.

Note that evaluation keys do not need to be registered!

For all GdPicture Toolkits, the final version is the same as the evaluation version.

Unlocking GdPicture.NET and its optional Plugins is easy. You have to create a LicenseManager object, then call the RegisterKey() method for each license to register.

Ensure yourself to unlock the Toolkit before using any of its functions from your application.

vb.net example:

Dim LicMgr As New LicenseManager

LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_PLUGIN_KEY)
LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_GDPICTURENET7_KEY)
LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_GDPICTURENET8_UPGRADE_KEY)

c# example:

LicenseManager LicMgr = new LicenseManager();

LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_PLUGIN_KEY);
LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_GDPICTURENET7_KEY);
LicMgr.RegisterKEY(MY_GDPICTURENET8_UPGRADE_KEY);

Each license of GdPicture.NET (commercial or trial) entitles a specific number of developers to be in touch with our team through our helpdesk to get priority support.

Using our helpdesk requires that you have an active service level agreement (SLA) support plan.

Each developer with an active support plan is allowed to open up to 10 tickets for a commercial license and up to 5 tickets for evaluation. Additional support plans can be purchased separately by contacting one of our sales agents.

You can find an exhaustive list of supported image formats here.

Sales FQA

Please find below answers to the most frequent sales and pre-sales questions asked by our users. This list will be frequently updated, according to your most frequent inquiries.

Three different license types are available for each of the GdPicture.NET editions and plugins:

  • per-developer license (1,2,3,4,5,6,7 or 8 developers)

    This license type entitles 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 or 8 developers and/or build machine, of the same organization at a single physical address to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.

  • site license

    This license type entitles an unlimited number of developers of the same organization at a single physical address to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.

  • worldwide license

    This license entitles an unlimited number of developers of the same organization at an unlimited number of physical addresses to write software with access to GdPicture.NET.

Use of the Software requires one license for each developer and user within your organization who will launch the compilation process of any application linking GdPicture.NET. For example, if your organization has 3 developers, 2 of which will work directly with GdPicture toolkit and another 1 will not work directly with the toolkit but he will nevertheless launch the compilation process of the project(s) including our product, you will need to purchase 2 + 1 = 3 licenses.

Licenses are non-transferable between developers. Therefore, if a company has “x” developers who will use the Software, the company requires “x” licenses, purchased according to paragraph 4.1. above. The same provision applies if, for example, the developers will not be working with the Software at the same time.

Please find out more by reading Chapter (4), “Commercial Licensing” in our EULA

Each and every feature available for both .NET toolkits and plugins have an ActiveX equivalent.

No, you cannot.

Our EULA is very strict and clear on this matter :

5.2. GdPicture.NET may not be used to develop software toolkits, API, libraries, REST services, components, command line software or any kind of third party software, except as authorized in writing by a duly authorized officer of ORPALIS.
