To run LuciadCPillar, you need a license file that is provided to you by Luciad’s Customer Services department.

LuciadCPillar supports two types of licenses: developer licenses and end user licenses. A developer license can be used with the original LuciadCPillar libraries, in the development phase of your project. It allows you to write, compile, and run LuciadCPillar applications. An end user license can only be used with finalized LuciadCPillar applications.

License terminology

The term developer license is used interchangeably with the term development license throughout the product. The end user license may also be referred to as the deployment license.

To install LuciadCPillar and run the samples, you need to place your license file in a specific folder. The installation instructions point you to the correct license file location.

In your application code, LuciadCPillar expects you to provide the license content rather than a reference to a file containing the license information. You need to register the license content in a LuciadCPillar EnvironmentEnvironmentEnvironment class. You must create that class when you start using the LuciadCPillar library. For more information about using the environment, see the first map application sample.
