License Types

Node Locked

The node-locked license type grants the right to use the software on one (1) computer. This is sometimes referred to as a "fixed" or "single-computer" license.

Floating

The floating license type allows multiple computers on a network to share a Pathfinder license. Each floating license of Pathfinder can be used by one (1) computer at a time. When a user closes Pathfinder, that floating license becomes available to other users on the network. You can purchase additional copies of the Pathfinder floating license to enable simultaneous access by multiple computers. This is sometimes referred to as a "network" or "concurrent use" license.

If you need to work with the software without a network connection, you can request a short-term node-locked license from support@thunderheadeng.com, please request the license with at least 2 business days of lead time to ensure we can provide the support you need.

Maintenance

Maintenance must be purchased annually after the first year to keep your version up-to-date and to receive technical support. Maintenance must be paid continuously to remain in effect.
