Features Different editions for different needs

HDevRunner is available in three different editions.

  • HDevRunner Demo is ideal to try out most of the functionality of the HDevRunner Standard and HDevRunner Professional editions for free. It must not be used for commercial purposes.
  • HDevRunner Standard is ideal if you need a fast and easy way to create a GUI application running your vision algorithms.
  • HDevRunner Professional contains all the advantages of the Standard edition, but includes many additional features which make it ideal for the advanced professional HALCON developer.
