Licensing Policy

QMB is always supplied in its full version. When a new SQL server is registered in the program, a 30-day trial license is installed. After the trial period has expired, you need to activate QMB's license. If several SQL servers are registered in the program, then a license must be activated for each. If several instances of the SQL server are installed on a computer, then the activation of one QMB license is sufficient for all instances.

To activate the license, an activation key is used. The key is sent by email immediately after purchase of the program. The key is permanent, not limited in time. It can be activated only on one SQL server at a time. When needed, you can deactivate and activate the license on a different SQL server. The number of deactivations is not limited. Activation and deactivation can be online or offline. Offline activation and deactivation are used if the SQL server is not connected to the Internet.

Free with SQL Express

When you use QMB for maintaining databases on SQL Express, license activation is not mandatory. After expiration of the trial period, the program will continue operating, but with limited functionality. See the details about the limitations in the table. For full program functionality, including for SQL Express, an activation key is needed.

Updates and Support

You can download and install all updates to the program for one year from the time of the last purchase of an activation key or of a renewal of support. To install subsequent updates, you need to renew support.

All support for the program is online. Questions to support can be posted in the forum or sent by email to We generally answer within 24 hours.
