The Visual Paradigm product family has two client products: Visual Paradigm ("VP Desktop") and Visual Paradigm Online ("VP Online"). Visual Paradigm is a traditional desktop application that can be downloaded and run in your operating system, while Visual Paradigm Online is a modern zero-configuration service that runs on a web browser.
Although the two products are fundamentally different, they are related in a way that some of the VP Desktop features rely on the web technologies provided by VP Online in order to function. The table below summarizes the features involved, with respect to the editions of VP Desktop in which they are supported.
When you try to access any of these features in VP Desktop, you will be prompted to connect to VP Online, like this:
By signing up for a free VP Online account, you can access all the features available under the running VP Desktop edition at no additional cost.
Note that the features marked * in the table above can operate entirely on a web browser. Users with active software maintenance are granted access to these features in VP Online (via web browser) as well, while users without maintenance can only use these features in VP Desktop.
Besides the features listed above, VP Desktop users with active software maintenance are granted access to the following VP Online features without additional cost.
