VPE v7.20, Windows

The VPE Community Edition is free of charge and - also for commercial applications - royalty-free. For this edition IDEAL Software does not provide any warranties nor support liabilities at all. In addition updates are not provided on a regular basis and not neccessarily at the same time as the commercial editions.

The free-of-charge provision is based on the principle of fairness:
If you are using VPE in a commercial application which generates profit, we would like to ask you to acquire licenses for the full version.

Note: If you are using a 32-bit IDE (like Visual Studio before 2022), and you are using the 64-bit VPE .NET component or the ActiveX, the 32-bit version of VPE must be installed in parallel, because this is loaded by the IDE. Vice versa, if you are using a 64-bit IDE (like Visual Studio 2022 or higher), and you are using the 32-bit VPE .NET component or the ActiveX, the 64-bit version of VPE must be installed in parallel, because this is loaded by the IDE.

bullet Customer's Responses

"I have been constantly fighting with the limitations of Seagate Crystal Reports to get the reports that I want. Now, with VPE, I'm glad to have found a reporting tool that offers all the freedom I need. I have not yet come across a problem that VPE couldn't handle! Thanks for your help!"
