Xojo License

This is the human-readable summary of the full Xojo® license. It's meant to give you the gist of what you are agreeing to when using Xojo. You should read the full legal license agreement for complete clarity.

You are free to:

  • Install Xojo on as many computers as you like.
  • Use Xojo free-of-charge to learn programming and/or develop software.
  • Install Xojo Desktop, Web, Console and iOS Build license keys you purchase on up to two computers. Xojo Pro license keys may be installed on 3 computers. Xojo Single-Platform Desktop and Raspberry Pi license keys may be installed on only 1 computer.

With the understanding that:

  • A Xojo License Key is required to build a stand-alone desktop, web, console or iOS application.
  • A Xojo License Key (Desktop or higher) is required to save a project in Text or XML formats.
  • There will be only one user of your Xojo License Key(s).
  • You may assign your Xojo License(s) to another user in your online account. Doing so designates the assignee as the only user of your Xojo License(s).
  • Licenses purchased directly from Xojo, Inc. are covered by a 90-day money back guarantee.
  • If tax must be paid for purchasing your Xojo License Key(s) and we didn't collect it, you are responsible for paying it.
  • The Xojo IDE will validate your Xojo License Key(s) (should you have any installed) via the Internet.
  • The Xojo IDE will transmit your computer name and computer user name to its servers via the Internet.
  • You won't ask others to build apps from your projects to avoid purchasing a Xojo License Key(s).
  • You won't build apps from the projects of others so that they can avoid purchasing a Xojo License Key(s).
  • You won't create a derivative of the Xojo IDE, frameworks or compiler.
  • If you are creating a development tool, you will include the "Made with Xojo" logo.
  • We have intentionally kept this agreement simple enough for anyone to quickly read and understand. If you violate the spirit of it (without even violating the legal word of it), we will be forced to replace it with something that is so long, boring, tedious and understandable to only the best of legal professionals that no one will want to read it. So, don't do that.
  • We (the employees of Xojo, Inc.) provide for ourselves and our families from the sale of Xojo licenses. If you circumvent our licensing, you are taking food from the mouths of our families and are reducing our ability to continue to make Xojo better for you. So, don't do that.
