We have been developing a desktop based product in C# for mining industry. This uses SQLServer as its desktop. There is a mining company who likes our product. inorder to carter them we need to upgrade from Express to Standard.

Can you help us with the licensing and the pricing details?

Also, we would be selling floating license. So while ur application will be installed in multiple computer only 2-3 (depending the license purchased) will be using the product at a single time.

How should we carter for that need.
