Cosmic Software FLEXlm
uses the industry standard FLEXlm
license manager software from Macrovision to provide a flexible licensing scheme.
Using FLEXlm, we offer three types
of product licenses.
CPU and Single User (FIXED)
This type of license allows Cosmic software to be installed on one computer
and used only by a single user physically using the licensed computer. Executing
the compiler across a network is not allowed. This type of license is read
directly by the compiler so no license manager software or services are needed.
Locked dongle License (NLD) -
This refers to a license that uses a serialized
parallel port or USB dongle for authentication. This
solution allows you to move
licenses from one computer to another by simply
moving the hardware key (dongle).
Use or Floating Licenses
This type of license allows Cosmic Software to be installed on any number of
computers or network servers, but limits concurrent usage to the number of
licenses purchased. This allows the greatest flexibility for part time users
or where user's need access to the software on more than one computer on the
same network. e.g. The user's office computer and a computer lab or test lab.
This type of license is counted and requires the installation of the FLEXlm
license manager software, which is available on Windows 2000/XP, PC-Linux
(Redhat v6 or Caldera Linux v2.3+), SUN Solaris and HP-UX. All floating licenses
are checked out for a minimum of 10 minutes and same license reuse is set to
same user on same workstation. Please note the network load is usually very
small because the actual Cosmic Software tools typically run on the client
and not on the server.

license or see the FLEXlm End User's Guide.
