After Sudoku Studio has been installed on a computer for 30 days, it
will begin to remind you that it is time to purchase a license for
When you purchase a license for Sudoku Studio, you will be given a
license code which needs to be installed on every computer covered by
your license. Usually, you will receive your license code on a computer
file named SSLicense.txt supplied to you as an attachment to an e-mail
sent to you by program author Jon Kane soon after your purchase is
recorded. Licenses can also be read to you over the telephone or sent
to you by post, although e-mail delivery is the fastest and easiest way
to obtain your license code. The Help pull-down menu contains a
selection to help you install your license code. Once your license code
is installed, Sudoku Studio will display the license name. This is
usually the name of the person purchasing the license but can also be
the name of an organization if the license covers a set of computers
owned by that organization.
IF YOU WILL BE THE ONLY PERSON USING YOUR Sudoku Studio LICENSE,
then you may purchase a license for a single computer. You may install
your licensed version of Sudoku Studio on as many computers as you like
as long as you will never be using Sudoku Studio on more than one
computer at a time and no other person will be using your licensed
version of Sudoku Studio.
IF MORE THAN ONE PERSON WILL BE USING YOUR Sudoku Studio LICENSE
including other family members, friends, or colleagues, then you are
required to purchase a license for each computer on which your Sudoku
Studio license will be used.
IF YOU ARE MAKING Sudoku Studio AVAILABLE ON A COMPUTER NETWORK by
installing the program on a server where it can be accessed from
multiple other computers or workstations, then you must purchase a
license for each computer and workstation that will have access to that
Sudoku Studio on that network. If your network is equipped with
software where you can limit the number of copies of a program in use
at any one time, and you limit the number of copies of Sudoku Studio
that can be used at any one time, then you need only purchase a license
for that limited number of copies.
