The Personal license is the best choice for a small office where your software needs to be used on only one computer. The Personal license is node-locked and can be installed on just one device, and cannot be accessed through a remote desktop connection.

The Flexible license is best for a larger office or for companies that have multiple users sharing software licensing through their server. The software can be installed on any number of computers and the number of concurrent users is respective to the number of licenses purchased. The users access the license file on the server, but the software runs from the user’s computer.

To own or to lease? The question is for more than just cars. We’re happy to offer both Perpetual and Lease plans for your software. Learn more about the differences and benefits of each plan while you sort out which one is right for you.

Perpetual is our most popular plan: it’s the one we’ve offered since the very first software we ever sold. With Perpetual, you’ll purchase your software outright and you’ll own that version of your license in perpetuity, even if you stop subscribing to Maintenance+. To keep your software up to date with continuous new features and with technical support, we highly recommend pairing your Perpetual plan with Maintenance+ to get the most value out of your investment. All new Perpetual licenses include the first year of Maintenance+.

When you Lease your software, you're subscribing to use the software on an annual basis. You’ll have full access to the software, technical support, and continuous new features, all for much less than the cost of a Perpetual license. However, once you stop paying for your lease, you won’t have access to the software anymore.
