Software license activation
At purchase an activation code is entered when the software runs. The code obtains a license key and quickly installs it. This apply to both floating and nodelocked licenses. If there are no license key, HDR Light Studio Xenon runs in demo mode, whichs means a watermark, limited environment map resolution and that projects can not be saved.
- Nodelocked license is for one user and allows HDR Light Studio to run on a designated primary computer, and a designated second home/laptop computer if required (by using the license transfer facility on developer's web site).
- Floating license is for multiple users and allows one concurrent session of HDR Light Studio to run on any computer on the local network. You need to purchase licenses for the number of concurrent users you will require. A computer on the network runs the RLM server software and client machines get their licenses from this computer via the local network.
- Annual subscription provides a license that will expire at the end of the 1 year period. During the subscription period you can run the latest software and you are entitled to support. When subscription period expires you no longer have access to the software. Renewal is not automatic.
- Permanent license does not expire. It includes 1 year of maintenance – providing software updates and support. At the end of this period, additional maintenance can be purchased in order to keep your software up to date and to continue to be supported.
License is delivered digitally, usually within 1-2 business days.
Please note that the right to return an item does not apply to digital deliveries or computer software where the serial number is delivered digitally. Even digital deliveries have a processing time as serial numbers and such must be verified.
