User license overview

The license is designated to one physical person who can run a session of the software on a specific computer. Activation is done over the Internet. If the computer does not have Internet access then you have to activate the license on a computer with Internet access and then transfer the license (see 'Portability'). A user license may not be used or accessed over a network.


The license can be stored in a removable medium (e.g. USB flash drive) so that it can be easily transferred from one computer to another. The removable medium has to be connected to the computer on which the program runs. A portable single user license may not be used or accessed over a network.

Student license

Student licenses incorporate all the software functionality of our professional licenses, but include a watermark on output indicating the reports and design were created using a Student license version. TiSoft Student licenses may not be used in the classroom or lab for instructional purposes, or for commercial or for-profit purposes.
To obtain a student license you must be enrolled as a student or faculty member at an educational institution which has been accredited by an authorized governmental agency within its applicable local, state, provincial, federal, or national government and has the primary purpose of teaching its enrolled students.
