Does ArcGIS Engine include Maplex?  (As usual I can't understand ESRI licensing.)

Yes, you need to use standard Engine Runtime with the Maplex extension. It is mentioned in the following table�?

For your reference, you can use the LicenseControl to initialize the standard Engine runtime license with Maplex extension in your application. Please see the screenshot in the following help document ("Properties dialog box descriptions" section):

So, what you are telling me is:

If I have the ArcEngine development kit I can code for Maplex and if the end user lacks that extension the license initialization will fail and then I can take appropriate steps by not calling that code in my application?

Is this correct?

Yes, your understanding is correct.


Are there any code samples using the MaplexOverposter class?
