Longer answer

Technically, the free version of GhostDoc can be used by individuals within a company, with a caveat that each individual must download their own copy from SubMain website since it is licensed to that individual and not the company. As such, GhostDoc could be used within an organization if the organization doesn't have a policy that restricts using software licensed to its employees personally, provided that the individual end user downloaded and installed GhostDoc Community Edition on their own.

Who is eligible for the free version support?

The individual who downloaded and is using the free version of GhostDoc is eligible for the product support, but not the company that individual works for.

Can the free version of GhostDoc be deployed "silently"?

No, because the free version is licensed to individuals it cannot be used for silent deployment. In fact, only GhostDoc Enterprise setup is designed to support silent installation.
 
Can the free version of GhostDoc be part of a developer machine image, virtual machine image or virtual desktop?

No, because the free version is licensed to individuals and must be downloaded and installed by the end user personally.
