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.
Multi-User licensing is used for thin-client installations such as Citrix or Terminal Server where KioWare is installed on a server and multiple display terminals connect to the server. If you need multi-user licensing, please contact us so that we can set your license type to this.
Volume licensing is used in large deployments (50 units or above). Volume licensing provides one license key that can be used for as many units as purchased. Volume licensing does not cost extra, but does require that you purchase support for all of your licenses annually and sign a Volume License Agreement. The agreement states that you agree to keep all records relating to the number and location of KioWare installations and that we may request an internal audit of the number of licenses in use. Contact us if you need a volume license.
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.
