Below you will find descriptions of each of the different license options available in the Rocscience Online Store.
The Personal License is the best choice for the small office where the program needs to be used on only one computer. It is a node-locked version, and can be installed on one computer only.
The Personal Perpetual License is purchased outright, and a product key is sent electronically, with no shipping required. The product key expires after one year, at which point a new product key is automatically sent to you.
The Personal Lease License is an annual subscription that includes all updates and upgrades released during the year for that program, plus free technical support.
The Flexible License is best for the larger office or for companies that have multiple users sharing software licensing through their server. The software can be installed on any number of client machines, with one or more concurrent users at any given time, depending on the number of licenses purchased. The users access the license file on the server, but the software runs from the client computers.
Flexible Perpetual (previously Portable License)
The Flexible Perpetual License is purchased outright. A product key is sent electronically, with no shipping required. The product key will expire after one year, at which point a new product key is automatically sent. There is an option to purchase a USB key for an extra $200 USD, which can be moved from computer to computer to use the software, rather than using a server. The Flexible Perpetual License with USB is sent by courier, and shipping is charged.
Flexible Lease (previously Flexible Network License)
The Flexible Lease License, an annual subscription, includes all updates and upgrades released during the year for that program, plus free technical support. The license is sent electronically, no shipping required.
Users with a registered copy of a program (Perpetual License) that is one version before the currently supported version can upgrade to the current version at the listed upgrade price.
Maintenance can be purchased annually for our Perpetual Licenses. With Annual Maintenance you will receive free upgrades and technical support. Without Annual Maintenance, technical support is available through our Online Help and Knowledge Base resources only, and upgrades can be purchased at the upgrade price. Note that the Lease Licenses include Annual Maintenance.
Can I use Rocscience software by running Windows on a Mac?
We don’t officially support our software on Mac computers, however we had reports of users successfully running it on these machines. Keep in mind that Personal or Evaluation licenses can only be installed in Boot Camp environment – they will not function when using Parallels or any software which runs Windows as a virtual machine.
