Are all products covered by the Maintenance program?

Most 4D products are covered under the Maintenance program. One notable exception is 4D Web 2.0 Pack, for which the first six months of Maintenance are covered in the purchase price. Please contact 4D for more details.

What exactly do I get out of it?

It allows you to download all product updates – both major and minor – for as long as you are subscribed to the program.

Why a Maintenance program?

Maintenance is a rapidly growing market practice that allows you to better plan and spread out your expenditures over  time, and to receive product updates without previous time and financial constraints.

How exactly does the SQL Unlimited license work?

The SQL Unlimited expansion is installed on 4D Server, allowing it to accept multiple SQL connections from third-party applications, without using up your 4D Client licenses.

 

The only limit is the physical capacity of your machine to effectively handle multiple SQL processes, based on the number and power of its processors.

 

The SQL Unlimited Expansion license is sold for servers with up to two processor cores. For more powerful servers, you can buy additional licenses corresponding to the number of processor cores on your machine.

Where can I find 4D Interpreted Desktop?

4D Interpreted Desktop is no longer provided as a separate executable.

 

However, the free deployment license for 4D Interpreted Desktop is still provided with all our development products.

 

To freely distribute your application in interpreted mode, distribute your 4D application (the same one that you use for development) along with your 4D database. Your end-users can use the application without a 4D product number.

Can I attach a 4D Client license to 4D Team Developer Professional?

No. 4D Team Developer Professional, as a server-based development license, only accepts 4D Team Developer Expansion licenses to increase the number of concurrent users, in addition to the two clients provided by default.

 

If you have 4D Server Developer 2004 as well as 4D Client Expansion 2004, and would like to upgrade to 4D Team Developer Professional v11 SQL, please contact your 4D representative.

Do 4D Client licenses still exist?

Yes. Even though 4D Client isn't a physical product anymore, the means of selling and licensing 4D Client expansions has not changed. You still have two client licenses included with 4D Server or 4D Team Developer Professional. You can purchase 1-, 5-, or 10- user 4D Client expansions for 4D Server v11 SQL to increase your number of concurrent users. 4D Client licenses reside on and are counted from the server.

Where is 4D Client?

With the release of 4D Server v11 SQL, "4D Client" is included in the 4D application. 4D Client, as an executable, is no longer installed on your machine.


To connect to 4D Server, launch 4D and follow the instructions in the new Wizard, or simply choose Open Remote Database... from the File menu.

I'm having a conflict with 4D for Flex and Adobe AIR

“I tried to create an AIR project using 4D for Flex but there seems to be a conflict. It looks like some of 4D for Flex's classes conflict with AIR's own SQL classes. SQLConnect is one of them.”


1) The approach of using what we call the Flash layer is not supported as it is explained in the manual.

 

2) If you still want to use this API, you can fully qualify this function as a workaround:
