We have introduced a new licensing system starting with version v16.2.0.x release of Essential Studio. These changes apply to all evaluators and only to paid customers who use NuGet packages. Starting with v16.2.0.x, if you reference Syncfusion assemblies from evaluation builds or from the NuGet feed, you also have to include a license key in your projects. Please note that this license key is different from the setup unlock key that you might have used in the past, and needs to be separately generated from Syncfusion website. Refer this link for more information about our licensing system

This blog explains the licensing-related changes that existing and evaluation customers should be aware of.

We have a simple, royalty-free licensing model. Components are licensed to a single user. We recognize that you often work at home or on your laptop in addition to your work machine. Therefore, our license permits our products to be installed in multiple locations. If you have any questions on licensing, please contact us at
