What license types do you offer
Single User Licenses
The “User License” allows one copy of the software to be used on any machine by one individual at a time. We allow a single Mech-Q license to be used on up to two computers with if the computer is used and owned by the same user and is not connected to your network (ie. Laptop or off-site computer)
Network Licenses (AutoCAD only)
The Network License allows multiple copies of the software to be used at the same time. When an user wishes to run the application they request a license from a central license server. For example, with two floating licenses, any number of users can have the software installed, but only two can use it at at a time – the others must wait for them to finish using it.
The Network License option is only available for AutoCAD. For AutoCAD LT and IntelliCAD, please see User Licenses above.
For larger companies we also offer site licensing. Please contact us for a quote.
How do I register your Mechanical Software?
A application serial code (ASN) is provided within the software at the time of the trial. The ASN can be found at the startup screen and within the Menu under Maintenance and Authorize.
After purchasing our Mechanical Software copy down the ASN and email it to us at support @ cadavenue.com. A permanent registration code will be emailed back, which will activate the software and turn off the trial reminder notice on the start-up screen.
