We are about to release a new product on Windows store, but this product is currently using the Telerik UI for UWP 2017.2.502.45 and was downloaded from Telerik as "Free Trial".

In past with this "Free Trial" we used to have a popup on app launch saying that we are using a trial and we need to buy license.

With this version of "Free Trial" I do not get any popup anymore.

In the meantime I've read Telerik UI for UWP has gone open source (Apache license), and it means I do not need to buy any license to include Telerik UI for UWP.

 

Is it safe using this "Free Trial" download without buying a license. I do not need the "premium" thing with support. Or should I remove the reference to this trial, and download the open source version from Github?

Hello, Julien,

Actually, the trial message is still included in the official product(which is now proposed as a premium one) so we are not sure what exactly has happened at your end. However, to make sure the message does not appear at some point, the best approach would be to reference the open-source version. You can directly use the Telerik.UI.for.UniversaWindowsPlatform NuGet package that is available in the NuGet official package source as well.
