Hi all,

I have installed OpenERP All-In-One Windows Installation and this installation is under GNU General Public License.

As I know OpenERP 7 is an open source software. May I know whether this software is free to use or it will be expired after 15 days and need to pay for it after 15 days trial?

Many thanks.

The 15 day trial is for OpenERP's SaaS hosting. It does not apply to a local, on premise, installation.

You will have to host the server somewhere (on your own server or in the cloud) which will imply a cost. You will need to do some configuration to get it to work for your company. If you don't have the skills for that, hiring a consultant will imply a cost. You may need to do some changes to the code if the available functionality isn't enough for you, which will imply a cost. You may be interested in the (optional) support contract with OpenERP which will imply a cost. Apart from that, it's free ;) If you need more info on pricing, contact a partner (you can find them on the OpenERP website).

hi Jessie,

OpenERP is and will be free of license fee. Apart from that you need to invest either money* or your time** into getting it to work efficiently.

*Money would be needed to pay people to help you with implementation, maintenance or customizations of OpenERP

**Your time would be needed whether you want to figure out all this by yourself

this discussion offers some interesting statements about this issue I think
