Network vs. Standalone Licenses

Alphacam licenses are available as standalone, single-user installations on one PC at a time, or as a LAN network installation available to any user's pc on your network. The advantage of network licensing is that the license and the license multipliers may be shared without limit across the network providing the number of users  at one time does not exceed the number of Alphacam core (the required base program of Alphacam) seats available.

License Transfers

Selling an Alphacam license to another company or user is not permitted by the Alphacam End-user Agreement. However, it is common to see computers and cnc machines being re-sold with Alphacam systems in place. A license acquired in this way can be transferred by paying a fee and the outstanding support and maintenance to register with the new user and to give that user an up to date system complete with support and maintenance coverage.

What happened to key "dongles"?

Hexagon has discontinued the use of removable USB license dongles across all Hexagon brands. All license keys, going forward, including replacements for physical USB license media, will be of the virtual, software type.
