IDL Virtual Machine
The IDL Virtual Machine (IDL VM) is designed to provide IDL users with a simple, no-cost method for distributing IDL applications. This execution mode of IDL allows you to easily distribute IDL application SAVE files to your colleagues or your customers, without requiring them to own an IDL runtime license.*
You can obtain a copy of IDL to run your IDL VM application by contacting L3Harris Geospatial Technical Support or your local IDL distributor: Contact Us. In some cases, the provider of an IDL VM application may also provide their own custom distribution of IDL to use with their application.

*An IDL development license is required to create IDL VM applications. An IDL runtime license lets you run precompiled application SAVE files in full IDL Runtime mode, without IDL VM limitations.
