Multi-user license

Multi-user license means that you can use a single license key for one or more users. Commercial and classroom license types provide multi-user license while personal and educational license types only provide single license key for only single users.

Multi-user license is NOT floating (concurrent) license. License should be purchased as many as the total number of users (not maximum concurrent user). For example, if there are total 10 users who will use the software in the company, the company have to purchase license for 10 users even if the users will not use the software at the same time.

Example: 10 users in a company

Recommend to purchase commercial license for 10 users even if they do not use at the same time.

Example: 50 shared-computers and 1 instructor for a lecture

Recommend to purchase classroom license for 51 users. In this case, it is hard to count the correct number of total users. Students taking the lecture may exeeds the 50, or may be less than 50. So, count the total number of shared-computer where the software will be installed in a classroom where the lecture will be taken. The instructor can install the software in his/her notebook computer and a PC for instructor in the classroom. If the student should be the software in home for assignments, evaluation version can be used for the purpose.
