I'm on a team that has one license for DevCraft UI Edition and I don't feel like I'm understanding licensing well enough. I've been reading this:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction-deploying-on-shared-hosting.html

And I have the following paragraph that I think is key from the purchase confirmation email that went to the developer on my team that we purchased the license thru:
Note: The controls
come with a special build, which does not have domain or server deployment
limitations and can be used in an unlimited number of projects. That same
developer build works without license keys and never throws license key errors.
******************************************************************************************************

I'm not used to this type of licensing so I'd like to confirm: We can install the product on any number of our developer laptops -- the licensed version that we can download from Telerik or did already, deploy to as many servers as we want and all the laptops and servers will not ever display the "unlicensed version" overlay that happens with unlicensed versions.

Hi Alexander,

Our licensing is developer based. That means each developer working in the UI layer of any project that includes telerik components must have a license. This one developer can install on their home desktop, work desktop, home laptop, work laptop, and however many more machines they work on. However, that licensed developer should be the only one using the tool on any machine. If you need more than one developer to use the tool, each developer must be licensed.

Hope this helps to clear it up!

Any issues with that developer deploying to a number of servers (dev/test/prod)?

Also -- my preference for managing 3rd party dlls in asp.net webforms projects is to have a LIB folder in the web application where the dlls reside and are referenced. One of the goals of this approach is to be able to deploy to any given server and have the application work regardless of whether telerik is installed on the server or not. Any issues with that?

Hi Alex,

On using the same license for deployment on many servers - Our EULA does not require additional licenses for build servers. This should not be an issue. 

On the way the controls are references in the solution - what is important is that the needed assemblies are copied over to the server and are properly referenced by the project. Usually they are placed in the Bin folder, but if you like to use another folder you simply need to make sure the references are OK and the dlls are copied. Installing the Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX on the server is not needed for deployment.
