The total amount of loadable text files depends
- on the available memory:
In general, a machine with 1 GByte of memory is able
to load 30000 text files without swapping.
A PC or notebook running Windows 7 / 64 bit, with 4 GB of RAM,
can load much more.
- on a technical limit: Depeche View is a 32-bit executable,
therefore even under Windows 7 / 64 bit, with 4 GB of RAM,
the amount of loaded text - as displayed while loading -
should not exceed 1 GB (or 2 GB of allocated memory
as shown in the Windows Task Manager).
This is usually sufficient for 100000 text files.
The .zip, .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 files must fit completely into memory
to allow loading. Archive files beyond 1 GB of size may not work.
No admin rights required.
Depeche View Pro (not the Demo) comes with a special
No Admin Installer,
allowing installation on every machine, even without admin rights.
By default, Depeche View does not install to a path within C:\Program Files
(which would require admin rights) but suggests a path C:\app\dview.
Optional admin installation to Microsoft standard location.
For company admins, there is also an option to install Depeche View Pro to the
Microsoft standard location C:\Program Files (x86).
This option requires admin rights.
Under Windows 7, the installer will require two additional clicks.
Under Windows XP, the installer must be "Run As" with an administrator account.
Installing as admin ist just an option, but not required for companies.
Portable Installation to USB stick.
The Depeche View Pro
installer (not the Demo) contains an option
to install Depeche View to a portable USB stick. You may then insert that
stick into any Windows machine and run Depeche View directly from that stick.
The portable binary cannot be used under Linux/WINE.
Also see the installer screenshots below.
Broad licensing terms.
- Single User License:
The license owner is allowed to install Depeche View Professional
permanently on up to five machines.
Furthermore, the license owner is allowed to install Depeche View
Professional on up to three USB sticks simultaneously, and to use
the program from these sticks on any machine where needed.
In other words, you may install Depeche View Pro on your work PC, home PC,
on your Notebooks at work and home. And you may use it from USB stick
on a colleague's PC to help in researching something quickly.
- Multi User Block License:
For every participant (employee) of the block license,
the license owner (company) is allowed to install
Depeche View Professional permanently on up to three machines
used regularly by that participant. This means Depeche View
Professional is allowed to be installed permanently on up to
three times the machines as number of licenses purchased,
provided that those machines are used regularly by any
of the license participants.
Furthermore, the license owner (company) is allowed to install
Depeche View Professional on a maximum of two USB sticks
per license participant (employee), i.e. in total a simultaneous
maximum of two times the number of licenses purchased,
allowing the program to be used only by the license participants
(employees) from those sticks on any machine where needed.
In other words, a company simply has to buy as many licenses
as persons that will be using the program. But the program can be
installed on more machines than there are license participants,
up to a limit, provided that those machines are
actually used by the license participants.
- No Serial Number Typing.
The Depeche View Pro Installer already contains the license ID.
You simply make a few clicks to install as shown below.
Company admins run the installer the same way on every
target machine. All license participants use the same license ID.
- No technical enforcements.
The license owner (company admin) himself should keep track
of the total number of installations and users. Depeche View Professional
contains no automatic checking, especially no dongles, no network messages,
no license server or live activation.
One year of free upgrades.
If a new version of Depeche View is released within
one year after your purchase,
