ET SpatialTechniques Licensing Options
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 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 email@example.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.

Upgrades/Maintenance - see our Upgrade Policy for details.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to transfer your fixed license to a new machine.
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.
- The current user explicitly releases the license.
- If ArcGIS is closed. For ET GeoWizards 12.0 and above if ET GeoWizards dialog is closed.
- The system administrator can revoke the license using ET License Manager
- It needs to run Windows.
- It needs to have an open port for TCP communications.
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:
ET License Manager can serve licenses for ET GeoWizards, ET GeoTools and ET Surface.
The License Server machine can run on any computer on the network (license server). The only requirements are:
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.
