I am writing system in Windows using IPP that will run as a service (no human user using it ). I will run this on 10 machines. Must I purchase 1 license because technically 1 user is using it? Or do I purchase 10 licenses? 1 for each machine?
Does a floating license apply here?
If I must purchase 10 licenses does volume purchase request apply?
The only license you must purchase is a development license. If you are the only developer you only need to purchase one copy of IPP, for your development machine. If there are multiple developers creating IPP applications, each developer must have an IPP license.
Any IPP application you build to be run on other machines do not require an IPP license, at this time there is no royalty fee for redistribution of your IPP-enabled application. Thus, in your case, those ten machines that will run your application do not require an IPP license, only your development machine(s).
