  • 7. How Will You Get eCognition 8.7(and other frequently asked questions)
  • 8. eCognition 8.7: FAQ
    Q: How will I get eCognition 8.7?
    A: All users with a maintenance contract valid on September 2011 are entitled to eCognition 8.7 at no charge. The eCognition license team automatically sends out licenses and download information for all eligible customers via email. New customers should contact eCognition sales at
    Q: Can I run eCognition 8.7 on a 32-bit operating system?
    A: eCognition Developer 8.7 will come in two editions a native 64-bit one and a 32-bit one. To run eCognition 8.7 on a 32-bit environment simply use the 32-bit edition. However, this will not allow you to benefit from the 64-bit editions advantages and therefore you will not be able to generate billions of objects.
    Q: Will eCognition Developer 8.64 still run if I install eCognition 8.7?
    A: eCognition Developer 8.64 will also runon the new eCognition 8.7 license therefore you can switch between version 8.64 and 8.7 any time.
    Q:Will eCognition Developer 8 rule sets run on eCognition 8.7?
    A: eCognition 8.7 is downward compatible, this means you can run all Developer 8.64 rule sets. eCognition 8.7 rule sets will not work on Developer 8.64 however.
    Q: Is there a trial version for eCognition 8.7
    A: Yes, can find a trial version for eCognition 8.7 at
    Note: *eCognition® Server is not included with trial software download package. eCognition Developer trial version allows non time limited full software access with the following restrictions: Disabled, in this demo: export functions, saving of rule sets, workspace environment. Projects saved in the trial version cannot be opened in a fully-licensed version of eCognition Developer.
