HOME Licensing options  HOME

We offer two licensing models for our products - fixed and concurrent. Depending on your (your company) needs, you can choose which model (or a combination of the two) you'd like to utilize.

A. Fixed licenses

A stand-alone or fixed license version is locked to run on a single machine and only that machine. 

Registering the software

The software as downloaded from our web site and installed will run in a DEMO mode. After purchasing the software the user will receive a reference number. He/She needs to generate a key request from the PC where the registered version will be used and send it to register@ian-ko.com. Upon receiving a key request we will send the registered user a license key that will unlock the full functionality of the software on the PC on which the license key was generated.

See these links for detailed information

NOTE: If you purchase ET GeoBox, you need to request separate license keys for ET GeoWizards and ET GeoTools

Upgrades/Maintenance - see our Upgrade Policy for details.

Versions

Each version of our products has sub-versions that support different ArcGIS versions. A license is valid for all sub-versions of a specific version. For example if you have purchased a license for ET GeoTools 10.2 and have registered the version for ArcGIS 9.2, once you upgrade to ArcGIS 10.2, you just need to download from http://www.ian-ko.com ET GeoTools 11.0 for ArcGIS 10.2, uninstall your current version and install the new one - the software will automatically find the licensing information. 

Transfer License

Please contact support@ian-ko.com if you need to transfer your fixed license to a new machine.

B. Concurrent licenses

While a single license is tied to a specific computer, the floating (also called concurrent or network) licenses can be shared by all the users that are connected to a network. For example, a 10 seat license allows 10 computers to run the program at the same time. The program can be actually installed on any number of machines, however, only 10 can use the program at the same time.

License Manager

Access to the licenses is controlled by ET License Manager - a software which runs on the license server and monitors the number of  licenses in use. It will not allow the use of a product on more machines than the licenses are available. A license that is in use can be released to other user in several ways or events:

  • The current user explicitly releases the license.
  • If  ArcGIS is closed or crashes.
  • The system administrator can revoke the license using ET License Manager

ET License Manager can serve licenses for ET GeoWizards, ET GeoTools and ET Surface.

The License Server machine can run on any PC on the network. The only requirements are:

  • It needs to run Windows.
  • It needs to have an open port for TCP communications.

Purchasing floating licenses.

The price of the floating licenses is the same as for the Single use licenses (no discount for bulk orders applies). Since this option is designed for large corporate clients we will not accept orders for less than 10 floating licenses. Customers that do not need 10 or more license can utilize our fixed licensing option.

Delivery of the floating versions.

A download location for the ET License Manager software and the concurrent version of ET GeoWizards, ET GeoTools or ET Surface will be provided upon an order received.

Versions

Each version of our products has sub-versions that support different ArcGIS versions. A license is valid for all sub-versions of a specific version. For example if you have purchased a license for ET Surface 5.0 and have registered the version for ArcGIS 9.3.1, once you upgrade to ArcGIS 10, you just need to download from http://www.ian-ko.com ET Surface 5.0 for ArcGIS 10, uninstall your current version and install the new one - the software will automatically find the licensing information.
