Q: We are running within a VM of an appliance. Do we have to license the whole appliance or just the VM that Qoppa’s library will be running within?

A: If you are running Qoppa’s PDF library within a Virtual Machine, you will only need to purchase a license for the number of cores allocated to the VM, not all the cores accessible to the applicance. Creating a VM is actually a good way to control the number of cores needed to license Qoppa’s library.
