KioWare is available for purchase via a perpetual license. Annual maintenance and support is recommended.
Single-user licensing is our most common form of licensing; if you don't know what license type you need, chances are it is single-user licensing. This type of license is generated from a specific PC’s system code and is unique to that PC, meaning it will only work for that computer. If you replace the hardware and would like to transition the license to the new machine, you can request a license reset after logging onto your user account.
Time Limited licensing is used when KioWare will only be used on that computer temporarily and you know the exact dates of use (for example: a tradeshow). After the expiration date, KioWare will no longer run on the computer and can be installed on a different computer. This allows you to reuse the license on a new computer without the license being tied to the original computer. You are able to set this license type within the licensing section of the KioWare configuration tool.
