Licensing

About licensing

XGeo software is acquired by the way of purchasing licenses. A licensee can be a person or a company. According to the  End User Lcense Agreement, a licensee has the right of time-limited or unlimited use of the software on one workstation without proprietary right which belongs to XGeo.

The "Downloads" page of the site offers for free downloading trail versions of all products. The limit of use of a trial is limited to 20 days after install, while their functionality is restricted as well as number of installations on a computer (usually by 3).

After purchasing a license, the user receives by email additional data permitting him or her to perform activation of the installed trial and turn it into full-functional software. In particular, the data contain the license number which is required for activation. Activation is carried by Activator – a program started by a command of the Windows Start menu.

 

Types of Licenses

There are three kinds of license:

1. Unlimited. Grants to the user right for unlimited (in time) use of the software on one workstation with full access to all its functions; free support for one year after purchase and free upgrades with the same major version number. The software can be installed and activated on several computers but   it can be used only on one of them. This clause of license agreement is enforced by an USB-key, which a licensee receives after the purchase.

2. Leasing with buyout. This type of license ensures access to all features of the software during 6 months or one year. The cost of leasing is, respectively, 25% or 50% of the product price. Leasing can be prolonged on request of the licensee. After 100% of the product price is paid off, the licensee acquires a right for free unlimited license. In case of leasing without buyout, the licensee is obliged to return the USB-key to the company.

3. Temporary. This license is used under special agreement between the company and the licensee. A product runs on the one computer without a USB-key during a limited period.

 

Versions, Releases and Updates

Each new edition of a product is called a release and has unique full version number with three components V.v.R, где V is major version number, v is minor version number, R is ordinal release number for V.v. Trials on the "Downloads" page usually represent the last product release and are labeled with full version number: XTomo-LM 3.0.4. A product update is simply a new release. The licensee downloads it, installs and activates using the same activation data. Normally, all updates with the same major version number are free. To delete a product from the system manually, use the Uninstall command of the product submenu of the Start menu.
