The use of FLAMES is governed by the terms and conditions of the FLAMES License Agreement.
All FLAMES products are licensed on an annual subscription basis. During the subscription year, the licensed products may be used on the computers for which the products are licensed. If a subscription is not renewed, the license to the products expires, the products may no longer be used, and all parts of the products must be uninstalled and deleted as specified in the License Agreement mentioned above.
A license to a product can be either “node-locked” or “floating.”
A node-locked license allows a product to be used on only one computer. This computer is assigned to the license when the product is installed, and it cannot be changed during the term of the subscription.
A floating license allows a product to be used on any computer that is connected to a given local area network. The number of computers on which the product may be used concurrently is determined by the floating license quantity. For example, if 3 floating licenses are purchased for a given product, the product may be used concurrently on any 3 computers on a given local area network. This network is assigned to the floating license when the product is installed, and it cannot be changed during the term of the subscription.
Licenses for some FLAMES products, such as the FLAMES Developer, are available at no cost. Such licenses are always node-locked licenses, and they may be obtained for as many computers as is desired.
Trial licenses for some FLAMES products, such the FLAMES Engine, are available at no cost. Trial licenses may be used only for evaluation and software development testing.
