The general rule that both WindRiver and QSSL follow is: How much is it
worth to you ?
They want to charge you the absolute maximum that you are willing to
pay. You of course, want to pay nothing; a compromise has to be
reached. Your corporate people call QSSL’s corporate people (or
vice-versa) and a deal is made. This is the way it works, and why you
never see prices (other than the developer seat price, cuz “yeah baby!”
if you want to pay developer seat price for each runtime, “they dig
that, baby - yeah !”
The best that can be said in this forum is that runtime licensing will
be significantly lower than developer seat pricing. You really do have
to call QSSL if you want realistic runtime pricing.

I’ve seen this asked many times over the years on comp.os.qnx and I know
that QNX doesn’t like to post prices (because of the flexibility of
licensing), but I still need to try to get an idea what one license
cost for QNX 6.
If I had to do it with no volume discounts, how much would I expect to
for the runtime (approx is fine)? This is for a production system so I
wouldnt need any development stuff. I would need the libraries though.
