Please nominate your Qt Champions for 2021!

Licensing -- Coders Left Us

  • We hired some Qt/C++ coders. They used some commercial components of Qt and we had to pay for this expensive license. The coders then left us. We are no longer compiling that source code -- the product will be discontinued. Do we need to keep paying on this Qt license in order for the Qt-created applications to continue running, or is that license only necessary for compilation?

    If you never need to update the application and the current deployed version are just to stay as it. never to be updated.
    Then I think you do not need as you did publish while having the license.

    That said, having a license is epic cool as it allows static bindings and
    extra support.

    So as far as I know, stopping the license will not affect application already deployed.

    what are those commercial components ?
    They changed Qt Chart and others to be usable in open source.

    ps. ps. next time, hire @SGaist :)
