The software can be licensed with two ways.
PC Locked and USB Dongle Licenses:
The PC Locked License is “locked” to the PC perminantly. The software will generate a “HardwareID“ based on the PC components, this is sent to Pixelwix and a “License Code” will be generated and and is then return emailed to the user. The software can run only on that PC as long as the hardware components do not change. When a hardware component changes, the software will generate another HardwareID. Based on the changed HardwareID, we can determine which component has been changed. If only one hardware component has been changed, we can generate a new PC Locked License. If the PC hardware is changed completely or a new PC is used, PC Locked License can NOT be re-generated.
If the software will be used on a changing PC Hardware configurations, or if the software will be used on more than one PC, a USB Dongle License needs to be ordered.
The USB Dongle License is stored and delivered on a secure “USB Dongle“. The USB Dongle License is independent of the PC Hardware. The software can be used on any PC as long as the USB Dongle is inserted into a spare USB socket.
USB dongles are delivered by mail.
Commercial and Home-User Licenses:
A Commercial License is for customers who are using the software for commercial applications and receive financial compensation from using the software. Re-sellers and system integrators, churches, non-profits, education facilities who use the software in their solutions are considered commercial parties.
A Home-User License (non-commercial) is for individual home-use only. It can only be purchased by individuals if no financial compensation is received whatsoever from using the software. A Home-user License can be ordered as both PC Locked License and USB Dongle License.
Both PC Locked and USB Dongle licenses are perpetual. A perpetual license will allow the customer to use the licensed software indefinitely. For the first 2 years, the perpetual license also entitles the customer to download any updates reqested and to receive technical support.
After the 2 – year period ends, the customer can choose to remain with the last version or to purchase a 2 – year Updates & Support package, for 40% off the invoice price. There are no penalties for letting Updates & Support lapse for a while before purchasing a new 2 – year Updates & Support package. The new 2 – year Updates & Support period will be extended from the expiry date of the last 2-year period.
Important: For all licenses purchased before 01.01.2018, the free upgrade and support period will end on 01.01.2020. After that, a new 2 – year Updates & Support package can be purchased.
