When you purchase a system, part of the cost of that system is for a license to run the software. Software is not purchased outright; it is not owned by the licensee. The license agreement for AcqKnowledge is and always has been that the licensee is allowed to use the software on only one computer at a time. If you ever simultaneously ran any version of our software on more than one computer and you had not purchased more than one license, you were operating in violation of the license agreement. Software development costs money, and a large percentage of our development cost is devoted to improving the analysis features. Hence we do not view “analysis only” as something that should be granted for free. Implementation of the iLok key system was intended to make clear the nature of the license agreement. If you would like to run the software on more than one computer at a time, then you should look into site licensing options.
