License Types

We offer two types of licenses for products of the Raptor Platform — dongle and node-locked. Dongle licenses are configured for you on a portable USB device and sent via mail. Choose this type if you want different people to use the software at different times, as it's easy to just transfer the dongle from one computer to another.

Node-locked licenses, on the other hand, are stored on the computer you request it with. This makes acquiring it much easier, and there's less hardware to keep track of. However, it's harder (though not impossible) to transfer this license between computers. Choose this type if you plan on having one computer with the ability to use the software with this license.

Requesting a New Dongle License

If you purchase a product with a dongle license, the license will be configured and then mailed to you, ready to use.

Requesting a New Node-Locked License

If you purchase a product with a node-locked license, you will need to download it and acquire the license to use it. To do this:

Import a License from a File

If you encounter problems with receiving license updates (firewall blocking them, etc.), there is an option to import a license from a file.
