It’s been some time since the last post and Wisej is evolving in big steps. I wanted to give you a brief update on licensing options.

It gives you the right to receive the full source code under certain circumstances. It doesn’t protect you against bad business decisions like selling a license for $35K.
‘The full source code is available as a free Code Warranty’. How does that work; can I get clarification what that means?

I am an old VWG user and I am seeing a long and painful migration process from VWG. Mainly because a product as recent as the Wisej, must have a lot of small issues to stabilize until the product becomes mature and stable to be used in real live applications (I remember that this evolutionary process have been long and painful with VWG, and when finally start being usable the company closes).
No seriousness by the Gizmox the way they close the door and left all users/developers orphan (paying users). The only serious way in a situation like this is to make all code available for the users. But ok, this is another story and I am crossing fingers that with Wisej will be different.
Thanks & regards,
