Licencing question



  • Hello.
    I’ve a little unclarity. In Licence, 2.2 it’s stated: “After you have registered, you may personally use the Software on one or more computers, or allow multiple persons to non-simultaneously use the Software on a single computer, but not both.” Does it means I can buy only one licence for both my computers at home? Second usualy uses my wife. And what about my notebook? I’m the only user of it. Thanks.

    Does it means I can buy only one licence for both my computers at home? Second usualy uses my wife. And what about my notebook?

    I don’t work for Conexware but my understanding is that the key wording is “non-simultaneously”.

    Only one license is required for all 3 computers - IF you can be sure that only one (PowerArchiver - not one computer) is being used at any time.

    So, if your wife never uses PowerArchiver then you only need one license. However if she does use PowerArchiver, you should ensure that you do not use it at the same time.

    My guess is that you could not be sure, so you would probably need two licenses - one for you and one for your wife. Then PowerArchiver can be used by either of you whenever needed (e.g. your wife at home while you are out with the laptop).



  • TBGBe> So I can forbid using to her… 😃

    No, seriously. She mostly plays WoW or surf the web so there’s very small probability we run PA both at once. And what if I’m working on notebook and destop simultaneously and accidentaly run PA on both? Is it violation of Licence? Is it crime? 🙂 I must say I’m usualy a bit confused from licence agreements and this one isn’t different.

    We give you freedom so you can choose if you want to license per computer/seat or per person.

    If you want to license it per computer, then multiple people can use it at the same computer.

    If you want to license it per specific individual, then you can use it on multiple computers as long as you are the ONLY person using it.

    You can not mix and match different licensing options, you pick one and thats it. None of the licenses are concurrent licenses.



  • Ah, got it…So when I purchase per user Licence and install it on my wife’s PC but I’ll be only user (e.g. PA will be installed only in my profile) is everything alright?

    yep! thats all there is to it.



  • Great. In this case, one licence, please… 🙂

  • Hello, I really would like to buy PA, but first I have to clarify my licence problem 😉

    @ admin

    You said that I can choose between a licence per computer/seat or per person. Is this option still up to date? I dont know where to choose this, there is only the possibility to choose between personal and business licence.

    Is it allowed to use this personal licence on more than 1 computer non-simultaneously (of course only by myself)?


  • conexware

    Yes. Just use it that way, there is nothing to select.

    thanks



  • Thank you very much 🙂



  • Thats handy to know. I have a couple of colleagues who are waiting for the outlook addin to be updated for outlook 2007 before they buy and they were planning to get 2 licences each (one of their laptop and one for their desktop). They will only have to buy one each if I read that correctly.

    yep… as long as they are only ones using it, that is correct…
