Active Local Pages is licensed in two forms - per-site (LOCAL licenses) and for development (DEVELOPER licenses). To determine what kind of license you need see the notes below:

  • LOCAL (Per-seat license). Applies to one machine only. With it the workstation is licensed to use ALP with any compatible application no matter if the application has its own (developer) license or not.
    Who needs it? Single ASP developers, end-users using shareware/freeware applications written in ASP/ALP, companies using ALP for their internal software applications and so on.

    Volume discount rates:
    1 license - $15
    5 licenses - $60
    10 licenses - $100
    20 licenses - $160
    50 licenses - $350

  • DEVELOPER license. Applied to the applications themselves. The companies that want to distribute their applications written in ASP/ALP will need to attach this license when they need to distribute ALP as integral part of their applications. You need only one such license and there is no limit how many applications will be distributed with it and how. If the application is licensed with a developer license the end-user does not need to buy any ALP license in order to use the application. Using the ALP features the developer can even "hide" the fact that ALP runs the application from the end-users.
    Who needs it? Companies that build autorun CDs, software for the retail market, software for unlimited number of different customers, companies that develop software for huge number of internal workstations etc.
    Notes: The DEVELOPER license applies to the vendor of the application. If certain developer builds a project for a customer who will be the official vendor the license should be issued to the customer (If you suppose your situation will be mixed - you will build many ALP applications under different conditions - see also the application license notes below).

Additional licensing opportunities for specific situations and requirements:

  • Source code license. Supplied as additional guarantee to companies implementing ALP in many production applications. Requires special agreement. Price depends on the refresh method/frequency and additional support required. Price for the minimal support (rebuild binaries and how-to-deploy assistance only) is $1560 (source archive refresh once per 6 months or more frequently if more important updates are made). Contact us for details.
  • Specific application license. The owners of DEVELOPER license can ask us to issue special license for some of their customers which gives the same rights as the developer license to their customer but for single application only. The price is $200 and 50% are for the developer. This license is for the special situations in which the developer's customer wants to fully own the software built for him by the developer and wants it to be transferred to him with all the source code, responsibilities etc. In such case if the developer wants to keep his developer license its customer will need its own license. In some cases the developer's customer can be non-software oriented company or otherwise not interested in building other applications with ALP the application license will give him all the needed rights for the application, but on much lower price than developer license. However if that changes in future (the customer decides at later time to buy a developer license in order to build/sale more ALP based applications the amount spend for application license (s) is subtracted).
  • Advanced support agreements. By default we provide the typical shareware support by e-mail. We always try to help our customers and we are trying to solve their problems even if they are not directly related to ALP. However such support is limited mostly to the ALP functionality and features. If you need extended support for your developers and administrators you can contract a special agreement that will guarantee that we will catch with your stuff when needed and help them with code review, specific tests and so on. Contact us for more information and price quotation.
  • Sole-developer/Academic discounts. Sole developers and academic organizations are eligible for special discounts for ALP DEVELOPER license purchases. The DEVELOPER license bought this way gives the same rights with only one exception - it cannot be transferred. A license transfer is a scenario in which the holder of the DEVELOPER license transfers the license to another party. For example a developer company that works primarily with a single big client may have a DEVELOPER license, at certain point the company may decide to transfer the license to its main client and get the money spent for it from the client. This is quite logical if all the ALP based software the developer company produces is in fact for that client. Such transfers are not permitted for DEVELOPER licenses obtained with Sole-developer and Academic discounts. Sole-developer discount is available only for individual developers and NOT companies (of any size). Academic discount is available for educational organizations such as schools, universities and so on. 

    These discounts are available only if the purchase is made by direct wire transfer (as additional guarantee that the licensee qualifies for the discount). The discounted price for Sole-developers for ALP DEVELOPER license is $250, Discounted price for Academic organizations for ALP DEVELOPER license is $300.
  • Referral program for educational organizations employing ALP for educational software used by their students. Some educational organizations may want to provide their students with ALP LOCAL licenses after completing a course, as a tool for personal use, as free bonus and so on. If the organization already owns an ALP DEVELOPER license it qualifies for the program. The program allows the organization obtain LOCAL licenses for the students on lower prices. The licenses are issued to every particular student.

    The current discount price is $5 per license. No less than 10 licenses can be requested per transaction. Contact us for details.

Special note for the individuals and small companies who want to distribute freeware/shareware applications based on ALP. You may avoid buying a developer license if your application is of certain type that will be interesting for the end users even with the requirement to download the ALP as separate download and perhaps buy a LOCAL license for it on their own. It is up to you to determine if this is suitable for your product(s). When you need to provide the user with minimal ALP engine download use these links:

Special note for the Magazines that have regular CD-ROM/DVD-ROM software collections issued with their magazines.. To publish the ALP shareware on the media you do not need an exclusive agreement. ALP shareware archive must be placed without changes in the package contents. 

Obsolete license types:

The Personal and Corporate licenses are no longer issued. ALP 1.1 and later supports them technically, but such kind of licenses are not issued any more. If the owners of such a license want to replace the license with LOCAL (per-seat) licenses this will be done for free and:

  • Personal licenses will be replaced with 10 LOCAL licenses
  • Corporate licenses with 100 LOCAL licenses


A sole developer or company that builds cheap shareware/freeware software may want to avoid spending money on ALP developer license - at least as long as the developer is not sure if the product will be well accepted by the end-users or a particular client. Thus the developers can publish their software providing download links to ALP and leave the final users to decide if they need to buy LOCAL ALP licenses. However this practice is not a good-looking one for developers who want to present their software in good light. Buying a developer license will remove the requirement end-users to buy ALP licenses and the ALP engine can be hidden behind the scenes. .

Usually the developer license is purchased by the company/person responsible for the software products licensed with it. However there are many and different situations and sometimes there are other relations involved - us - developer - client. Sometimes the developer's client wants complete ownership of the software and does not want to depend on the support agreement with the developer any more.

Developer spending (samples):

You are a developer and you will build application (s) you will distribute directly to the final users (on any media) - you need only one developer license - $(320)

You are developer and a client of yours contracts development of an application for its internal needs. You will support the application and develop it further. A developer license can be bought for you or for the client for $320. Notes: The application is for the client but you are responsible for it. The actual holder of the license is not important for us.

If the license has been bought for you and at later time your client wants to obtain full source code of your application and develop it further on its own or transfer the development to another company (not yours). You can:
- Transfer your developer license to him (in case you will not develop more ALP apps this is the cheapest way). 
- The client can buy developer license for himself ($320). You keep yours the client gets its own.
- You can order an application license for that application ($200) if you want to keep your developer license (because of other ALP based products of yours) and the client does not need full developer license for ALP for any other purposes than the single application only.

You are developer and you have clients who distribute the products you build for them to 3-d parties and the client is the official vendor. You can either:
- Ask each client to buy developer license $(320)
- Buy developer license for you and order application licenses ($200) for each application.
- Buy developer license for you ($320) and act as responsible vendor as long as your client does not need to be able to get the product you build and develop it further on his own (in fact this depends on your contract conditions with the clients).
