The Desktop version of VivaDesigner is available in several free of charge and licensed editions. All licensed editions of the desktop version except the Classroom Edition are for one workstation only. Please have a look at our detailed version overview/comparison (PDF) on the right hand side.
We recommend the free of charge “Demo/Trial Version” if you want to TEST VivaDesigner for a limited time. The functionality of this version is almost identical to the Commercial Edition. After the trial period expires, the version can however still be used as a free of charge “Free Edition”, or you can unlock the version with a license key that you receive when you place an order.
Use the free of charge “Free Edition” if you want to use VivaDesigner permanently free of charge on a private or commercial basis. The program functionality is limited for licensing reasons. You can however still open documents from the other desktop or Web editions, edit, save and print them. The “Free Edition” may be used for both private and commercial purposes. Please also check the information on the demo/trial version.
