Default How does a Fluent LICENCE works?

Hi all!

I am a Fluent user which uses it at the university with academic purposes. The fact is that one day I had to work with the PC of the administrator of the licecnce for the university and the coincidence was that he had logged in to fluentusers.com and left the window opened.

While I was in this PC I kept an eye in this site and there's a section called Download center of something like this. It seems the administrator can download all Fluent products with one licence, because it appeared a list with all fluent programs to download. I stopped there because I didn't want to cause problems but I have a question: how a licence works? I mean, if I buy a licence, I really buy a "KEY" and then I am able to download Fluent, Gambit, TGrid or whatever?

It's just curiosity xD. Thanks!

If you have a username and password to fluentusers then you can download all the software even without a license. But you need a license key to run each software whcig you can purchase from fluent

Thanks Jan: I imagined something like this...

When you say:

"But you need a license key to run each software whcig you can purchase from fluent"

So with the current licence which in our university are using Fluent and Gambit we cannot download and use any other, no? One licence for one software I mean...

By the way, somebody knows the licence price for TGrid? It should be not as expensive as Gambit is I imagine: something around 1500$ perhaps...?

Thanks for your participation

TGrid comes with the standard package i.e. your current license already has TGrid. If you need an extra TGrid license - you probably need to discuss this with your distributor but chances are that it would be cheaper since you have a student license

WHAT? Are you referring that the standard Fluent licence also let me use TGrid?
