My evaluation period has expired but I’m not finished evaluating. How can I extend my evaluation?
You can request an extension of your evaluation time using the dialog that appears when you try to use Genome after the evaluation period has expired: simply run DDSC (i.e. build a Genome DataDomain Schema Project). DDSC will write out an error message with a link to our website, where you can then apply for an evaluation extension. The link will also transfer some information about the evaluation license you'd like to extend, so it is important that you use this link.
You can find this link in the "Build Output Window", which can be displayed as follows: Select View - Output in the menu. An output window should appear, with a combo box labeled "Show output from:" Select "Build" (note: this selection becomes available only after trying to build a solution!).
Who needs to be licensed?
Any developer working
with Genome who executes ddsc.exe (Genome's schema assembly compiler)
requires a license. Developers who only work with the binaries of
business layers, mapping assemblies and Genome's API without calling
ddsc.exe do not need licenses.
What does my license cover?
Your license grants you
one year of online access to the Genome installation packages of the
edition you have purchased plus a support incident. This means that,
for one year, you can get new versions of Genome and bug fixes as they
are released and have access to support. After the initial year is
over, you can subscribe to upgrades and support for additional years.
You can of course continue working with old versions of Genome even if
your upgrade period has expired. More details are available in the pricing section.
Can I activate my Genome license on more than one workstation?
Absolutely. We understand that you are likely to work on more than one workstation so you may activate your Genome license on multiple workstations, for example once on your desktop PC, once on your laptop and perhaps at home. Please note however that all developers compiling ddsc.exe need to be licensed.
