FAQs

How many computers can I register the license to?
This varies depending on what is stipulated in the contract. Typically, academic licenses will allow up to 20 registered computers, whereas, corporate licenses will only allow 3 computers per purchased license.

Can I use the software offline?
Yes, but only for a maximum of 2 weeks. After this 2 week period, your entitlements will expire.  To “Release Entitlements” you must connect to the internet.

Can Optiwave manually “Release Entitlements” for a given user?
Yes, Optiwave can remove entitlements server-side in the case where you cannot locate the person or computer currently using them. Requests must come directly from the end-user in charge of the Optiwave license (email licensing@optiwave.com).

Does the Optiwave License Manager Utility always need to be running?
Yes. The utility keeps your license up-to-date and allows the Optiwave software packages to run. You should see the Optiwave Utility on your Windows System Tray.
