The SDKs require a license key and work in evaluation mode when no key provided. The entire SDK is available in this mode, but any saving of the PDF files will add demo-watermarks to these files as well and additional demo-labels will appear on rendering of each page.
 
So, please be careful working with documents when the SDK in evaluation mode as you may overwrite your files and add demo-watermarks on each page of it! But the demo-labels that appear on rendered pages in evaluation mode do not modify the document at all.
 
  
When you have your license key, you need to set it using [[PXV:IPXV_Control_SetLicKey]], in case if you are using ActiveX control ([[PXV:PXV_Control]] object) or using [[PXV:IPXV_Inst_Init]] when the ActiveX control is not used.

As with all of our developer tools, this SDK can used without time or functionality limitations, to ensure satisfaction prior to purchase. However, each and every page printed, created or modified (if saved) will have an evaluation watermark embedded, to show that this has been performed using an unlicensed version.
  
If you are not using the '''PDF-XChange Editor SDK''', but use '''PDF-XChange Core API SDK''', please pass your key to the [[PXV:IPXC_Inst_Init]] call.

As with all of our developer tools, this SDK can used without time or functionality limitations, to ensure satisfaction prior to purchase. However, each and every page printed, created or modified (if saved) will have an evaluation watermark embedded, to show that this has been performed using an unlicensed version.


      • WARNING*** Do not use any source material (e.g. PDF file) while evaluating the SDK. Please use a copy of the original document, as evaluation watermarks cannot easily be removed, even by a licensed product!


When you are fully satisfied that this SDK fulfills your needs, only then should you purchase your license and acquire a valid license key. Once purchased, embed this within your source code, using the appropriate function(s), as detailed below. Please note that you may create distribution ready applications, without a license, prior to purchase.

For the PDF-XChange Editor SDK, please pass your license key using either the IPXV_Control::SetLicKey method, when using the ActiveX control (PXV_Control object) OR the IPXV_Inst::Init method when the ActiveX control is not used.

For the PDF-XChange Core SDK please pass your key using the IPXC_Inst::Init method call.


Which License do you need?

Firstly, the PDF-XChange Editor SDK license covers the entire range of functionality, as represented to your users by the rich UI of the PDF-XChange Editor, embedded within your own applications, and controlled either in part, or directly, by the interaction of the End User. The full Editor SDK also allows you to access and offer the NON-UI based functionality of the PDF-XChange Core API SDK and all of its creation and manipulation features.

Secondly, the PDF-XChange Core API SDK license provides access to all the NON-UI based functionality, available for the creation and manipulation of files. However, it does not allow you to utilize, or offer to your users, in anyway ,the functionality of the PDF-XChange Editor UI.

Also, please note that both SDK's are Royalty based via the purchase of Client Distribution License Packs (CDLPs [available in various volumes]). While you are able to fully develop and test all of your applications, using the SDK in evaluation mode, prior to distribution of an application, making use of this SDK to any end-user client requires the pre-purchase of CDLP's at an appropriate volume to satisfy your needs.
