Free vs Paid Version of an app in General Help Posted February 19 Thanks @corneliusdavid and @Vandrovnik 16 hours ago, corneliusdavid said: A few other pieces of information might be handy to make a good decision. If there are just a few of these corporate customers and the only branding is the logo, getting the logo and building a custom install from your compiled application would be relatively simple to manage--I've done something similar to this. And yes, like @Vandrovnik mentioned, InnoSetup is great for this--either for you embedding a custom logo or with them supplying a logo with the right name and size in the right location so the installer can find it. Yes, this is a solution but it means that the app needs to enter the typical "corporate" IT world where the IT prepares an update and then distributes it to the employees 16 hours ago, corneliusdavid said: But if your customers want to do a lot more than just the logo, like customize some labels or options or set colors and distribute a whole "themed" application, then I would suggest building a theme packager (could be as simple as zipping some files) and making it simple for them to create a theme and package it for their own distribution. Your installer would have to look for a theme package and apply it and you'd deploy a basic theme. Not at the moment. I have a built in theme manager but it is not included in this case. So, it's only about a logo and some additional functionality. 16 hours ago, corneliusdavid said: My experience with any sort of theme or customization is that there will always be little changes here and there after it's "done" and you don't want manage all those for all the customers, so giving your customers the ability to mange those for themselves would be highly preferable. In any case, you want your base application the same between paid and free if at all possible, and some sort of long, encrypted license key or something that unlocks the full power for the paid version. I am also a bit torn between having one app with a license key that unlocks more features and having a separate build with IFDEFs. As mentioned in the initial post, I am also considering embedding the logo in an exe resource but I am sure I will need to produce a mac version in the near future. Is there something similar on macOS?
