My customer wants a permanent license for the professional version of our Compiler for RX but has two questions.
1. What property of the computer is used for the node-locked version?
2. What version of Windows is required for each of the two versions (node-locked / floating)?
Waiting for your kind feedback, thanks a lot.

They are not dependent only on the compiler itself but on the IDE you are using as well.

As for a yearly vs. permanent license, If they purchase a permanent license, then the decision between node-based and floating would, again, be based on the pricing, as well as on the conditions of the node-based option.
2. It raises another question for instance, if the node-based option is dependent on the serial number of a hard drive, then this means that the license isn't really permanent - it will last only for the life of the disk which is about 5 years OR the permanent node-locked license could be transported into different PC in case the PC got broken/replaced?
Waiting for your kind feedback on the subject, thanks in advance.

Jayesh (SWF) Hello,
Thanks a lot, could you please indicate what information is used to identify the node so that they can assess the lifetime of the license?
Hi Shai Berman.Let me get details about this from the internal team and then I'll get back to you.Regards,Jayesh
The annual license is the same software but time locked for 1 year upon activation of the product
The permanent license is good for the Major version of the compiler and will also include any step updates. Example Version 1.xx.xx ( Major. step. patch) as long as you stay on the major version the license is good.
If you want to update to the Major version that will require a purchase and we do offer upgrade pricing and you will need to contact your sales for that pricing information.
If you are concerned the NODE-LOCKED version doesn't rely on Hard Drive or Network Card IDs as a locking mechanism.
The floating license will require that you setup a computer as a license sever that is on the same network as the computers that will be using the license. It is a check out / in operation. I will mention that once you check in a license can take as much as 10-20 minutes to fully release the license for the next check out of the license.
