    We have just bougth DevCraft complete developer for one developer and as a test, downloaded the winform component from

    well I have two machines that have visual studio and i installed winform component both and i can design at the same time, but i did not add any license (licx file that even i dont know what is, source )
    so i just logon the telerik website and download the winform component exe and installed to the both machine and i can use telerik winform components and build and execute them in different machine. 
    and i checked that dlls are not trial version (from dll properties).. 
    I am concerning that several days later will i be warned for license key ? because when i install a product to my customer, after 30 days later, i did not want any problem for the telerik dlls.
    I searched also similar topic but did not find a right answer. 

    Could you inform me about this stuff? and secondly is there any difference between mvc license, wpf license, winform license etc. 
    Thank you

    PS: I opened this tread in wrong place please delete it.(

    Thank you for writing. 

    The license file (.licx) is part of the standard .NET licensing mechanism. It is employed by WinForms as of  Q1 2015 and it is not in any part related to the distribution of the controls on your client machines. The licenses files generated by ASP and WPF are similar to the one you have in your WinForms project. Generally, it is recommended to keep this file out of your source control system. Please check the following articles for additional information:
    I would like to also clarify that according to the license agreement for Telerik UI for WinForms, the software is licensed, not sold, as per seat basis. Basically, it means that you are entitled to install the suite to as many development machines as you want, as long as you are not using the software simultaneously. Please refer to point 1.3 of the license agreement: and our FAQ.

    Regarding the distribution of the assemblies you can refer to the following documentation articles for the available options: Redistributing Telerik UI for WinFormsApplication Deployment

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
