Q. What is a perpetual license?
The TimeGen perpetual license will not expire. You will receive 1 year of free support, bug fixes, and upgrades. After the first year, an optional maintenance fee is charged per license. If you purchase the maintenance fee, then you continue to receive the free upgrades, bug fixes, and customer support. Otherwise, the software will still work but you need to purchase any future upgrades.
Q. What is a node locked license?
A node locked license is a license to use TimeGen on only one machine. TimeGen will lock itself to the machine (node) and you will only be able to use TimeGen on that node.
Q. What is a USB (dongle) license?
