There are 3 types of licenses available:

  • USB standalone key
  • USB Network dongle
  • Soft key
USB Network dongle

The number of sessions is limited to the number of licenses available in the key.

A license can be picked up from any computer (including the one hosting the dongle) than can be connected through the LAN or in remote session to the computer hosting the dongle. Any computer can be used as a license server.

Calculations can be performed on any computer if the license is reached from the LAN. If the license is reached in remote mode, then the calculations will be performed on the computer hosting the network dongle.

USB Standalone key

Unlimited number of sessions can be open with a single license but only on the computer hosting the dongle that is used for the calculations.

The limitation will come anyway from the hardware (number of cores available and RAM size). If not enough cores, the calculations will be very slow.

If the RAM size is not large enough, the project loaded in memory will be resampled. The dongle can be plugged to any computer. No remote access is possible (Network, VPN, Remote desktop, …).

Soft key

Unlimited number of sessions can be open with a single license but only on the computer hosting the soft license. The calculations can be performed only on that computer.

The limitation will come from the hardware (number of cores available and RAM size). If not enough cores, the calculations will be very slow. If the RAM size is not large enough, the project loaded in memory will be resampled.

The Soft license cannot be transferred to another computer. A license can be picked up whether locally (by working directly on the computer hosting the Soft license) or in remote mode (VPN, Remote desktop, …).
