The s/w comes with an initial 60-day trial license. After the trial expires, you will need to purchase a license for further use.

The purchased license is a "lifetime" license.

Thank you for your information.

I purchases both software from Trinergy in Thailand, but i got only 4 years licences.

Do you know why?

When a Floating license is checked out the default expiration is set to 1 year. The user can change the default expiration period from 1 year to anywhere from 4 hours to 4 years.

When a license reaches the expiration date, the user can check the license back in early (prior the expiration date) or wait until it expires. If you wait until it expires, it will automatically check itself back into AMS.

Once checked back in, you just need to recheck it back out and set the next expiration date. So the maximum check out period is 4 years at a time.
