Open Inventor Redistribution

Once you have created an application program using Open Inventor on your development platform, you may want to package it for redistribution on other end-user computers. To do that, you'll need to bundle some of the Open Inventor files with your program. You will find below the description of the run-time files that can be redistributed for each platform and for each programming language.

 


Licensing

Windows

Unix

OS X

OS Independent

Java

.NET


Licensing

Your Open Inventor Development License entitles you to use the SDK to create and execute Open Inventor programs on the licensed machine. You may need an additional Run-Time license agreement with FEI allowing you to redistribute the Open Inventor run-time.

A run-time license is required for Open Inventor and each Open Inventor extension that is used by your application. The steps involved in setting up a run-time license are listed in the Licensing section.

Note that runtime licenses cannot unlock Open Inventor SDK installations. Since Open Inventor version 8, runtime licenses fail to unlock Open Inventor based applications when :

  • An Open Inventor SDK installer has been used on the system, or
  • One of the Open Inventor SDK directories doc, include, arch*\lib (Windows only) or src can be found on disk, or
  • Application is using OIV debug components

NOTE: If you have a master password agreement, other policies and practices apply relative to the disclosure and distribution of passwords. This information is provided in the materials that you receive with your master password.

Windows

The Open Inventor run-time system is dependent on the operating system and the compiler version that Open Inventor was compiled with. Some of the required libraries are operating system dependent.

Open Inventor DLLs

The Run-Time License permits you to redistribute these files, which are necessary for an Open Inventor on Windows. Unless otherwise indicated, all of these files must be supplied.

NOTE: You are not allowed to distribute debug DLLs, e.g., InventorD.DLL.

Inventor.dll
InventorBase.dll
InventorGL.dll
InventorImage.dll
fei.tbb.dll
fei.tbbmalloc.dll
fei.tbbmalloc_proxy.dll

    TBB malloc library
    TBB malloc proxy library

Note: the TBB libraries and entry points have been renamed to avoid conflicts with other versions used in customer applications.

Dynamically loaded DLLs

The DLLs prefixed with "IvDL" are dynamically loaded. The following files must be redistributed.

If you have chosen to use one or more alternate DLLs, be sure to distribute the alternate DLLs that your application needs.

In order for your user to use the Open Inventor DLLs, the directory containing these DLLs must be found in one of the following locations: the application directory, the current directory, the system directory, the Windows directory, %PATH%. The dynamically loaded DLLs are searched for in all the same places, plus %OIV_LD_LIBRARY_PATH%.

  • If you are distributing your application on non-English (US) based versions of Microsoft Windows, you may need to distribute:

    MSVCIRT.dll

  • NOTE: You should always test your product distribution on a system that has Windows (and *only* Windows) installed. If software other than Windows (e.g., Microsoft Office) has been installed on the test system, there may be DLLs present on the system that would not otherwise be present. You could be misled into thinking that your distribution supplies all the necessary DLLs when in fact it doesn't.

    You can use the "depends" tool to determine what DLLs are required to run your appliation. A GUI version of this tool is included with Visual Studio, and a command-line version can be found on the internet.

ScaleViz Files

If your application is a cluster-enabled application, you must distribute the following files:

  • The Open Inventor Render Unit (OIRU). Its file name is oiru.exe on Windows and oiru on UNIX.
  • The ScaleViz daemon/service program named scalevizd.exe on Windows and scalevizd on UNIX.
  • For each ScaleViz communication layer you want to provide, you should distribute the corresponding
    - launch-<name>.bat (windows) or launch-<name>.sh (UNIX)
    - ClusterCom-<name>.DLL (windows) or libClusterCom-<name>.so (UNIX) communication library file.
    Important note: If the communication layer library has other dependencies like MPI, do not forget to distribute them too (mpiexec, libmpi ...)

You will also need to distribute a selection of configuration files and appropriate instructions so that the user can select the one that is appropriate for his/her cluster configuration.

Note that whether your application is cluster-enabled or not, you will need to distribute the ScaleViz shared library as indicated previously.

WARNING: IvTune Access to Scene Graph

By default, a user can launch IvTune from any Open Inventor viewer with a shortcut keyboards buttons (SHIFT+F12 by default). IvTune allows the user to view the scene graph contents and even modify them. To protect your application's scene graph, we recommend disabling this feature when redistributing your application. The most secure method is to disable IvTune access programmatically, either by calling

SoDB::setIvTuneAllowed(FALSE);

or by calling

SoPreferences::setBool("OIV_NO_IVTUNE",TRUE);

Open Inventor Font Files

If your application uses the Open Inventor stroke fonts (<OIV_INSTALL_DIR>/data/fonts), you may distribute the font files used by your application. Open Inventor looks for stroke font files in the directory specified by environment variable OIV_STROKE_FONT_PATH.

Dragger Geometry Files

If your application uses draggers that you have customized by supplying modified dragger geometry files, you will need to supply these modified dragger geometry files to your customers. Open Inventor looks for dragger geometry files in the directory specified by environment variable SO_DRAGGER_DIR.

It is NOT necessary to distribute the standard dragger geometry files because the default dragger geometry is already compiled into the Open Inventor libraires. You may also choose to compile custom dragger geometry into your application.

Material Palette Files

If you anticipate that your customer will use the Material Palette (which is part of the standard Material Editor), you may wish to distribute the materials used by the Material Palette:

    <OIV_INSTALL_DIR>\data\materials

On Windows, Open Inventor searches for the materials in the directory specified by the following system registry item:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
  SOFTWARE
    VSG
      Shared Resources
        MATERIALS_PATH

On UNIX, Open Inventor searches for the materials in the following locations:

  • /usr/share/data/material
  • the path specified by environment variable OIV_MATERIALS_PATH

Help File

The standard Open Inventor viewers have a "?" button on the right side used for accessing a help file. If you want to use this button to provide useful information to your end users, you will need to create a help file containing information specific to your application, and then tell the Inventor viewer to display your help file when the "?" button is pressed. See SoWinComponent or SoQtComponent for details. Be sure to include your custom help file when distributing your application.

Java

The Open Inventor Java run-time located in the jre folder contains several JAR files implementing the Java part of the API and a C++ run-time of the native part. The JAR files are portable across platforms like any other Java component but the C++ run-time is platform dependent. Thus redistributing Open Inventor Java requires to build separate installers for each platform.

The following packages are included in the Open Inventor Java run-time:

OpenInventor.jar
com.openinventor.meshvizxlm.mapping.jar
com.openinventor.meshvizxlm.extractors.jar
com.openinventor.meshvizxlm.mesh.jar
Inventor.jar

Open Inventor java implementing the com.openinventor package
MeshViz Data Mapping package
MeshViz Extraction package
MeshViz Mesh interfaces package
Open Inventor java implementing the com.mc package (deprecated)

The jre folder can be copied as is for redistribution. However, If the com.mc package is not used, Inventor.jar and InventorJni.(dll/so) are not necessary. Conversely, If the com.openinventor package is not used, OpenInventor.jar and OpenInventorJni.(dll/so) are not necessary. The property file located in the properties folder must also be redistributed.

.NET

The Open Inventor .NETrun-time located in the assemblies folder contains several assemblies implementing the .NET part of the API and a C++ run-time of the native part.

The following packages are included in the Open Inventor .NET run-time:

OIV.DirectViz
OIV.FxViz
OIV.HardCopy
OIV.Inventor.Algorithms
OIV.Inventor.Base
OIV.Inventor.Cuda
OIV.Inventor
OIV.Inventor.GL
OIV.Inventor.OpenCL
OIV.Inventor.SbLinear
OIV.Inventor.SbLinear.Compat
OIV.IvTune

OIV.ScaleViz
OIV.SolidViz
OIV.VolumeViz
