Open Source MapSuite GIS Editor license?

I downloaded the open source GIS Editor and was able to run it successfully on my machine. I get a ‘not licensed for map development’ watermark with no ability to open maps. Do I need to purchase a license to use this open source application?

Hi Ernest,

If you want to debug it, the development license is required.

Here is the detail information from FAQ in project page:

Q: I cloned this project, but it throws an exception when I try to debug it.
A: This project is protected by ThinkGeo’s licensing policy. It includes one runtime license of Map Suite Desktop which allows you to run the app without limitation. However, if you want to debug this project, a development license is required.

Wish that’s helpful.

OK. I saw the one run time license and when I run the .exe it works fine.
I do have a Map Suite Desktop license. So with that how do I debug the app and not show the license error in visual studio?

Hi Ernest,

I think the license for Desktop for WPF is enough, because the project reference this dll.

Do you still met the exception after WPF is activated?

Ethan
