What is the difference between a local and a network-license?
Depending on your institution's digital infrastructure, we can deliver either local licenses or network licenses.
Local licenses means that each computer is activated locally via an Internet connection. Usually this application is used for laptops.
With the network license, a network license manager (NLM) takes over the administration of the licenses. It should be installed on a Windows (or Linux) server or one of the clients and will allow simultaneous use of any purchased licenses. The software can thus be installed on all devices in the network (floating license).
The NLM is available for each of the following programs:
- VEGAS Movie Studio, VEGAS Movie Studio Platinum, VEGAS Movie Studio Suite, VEGAS Pro Edit, VEGAS Pro, VEGAS Pro Suite, Movie Edit Pro, Movie Edit Pro Plus, Movie Edit Pro Premium, Video Pro X
- ACID Pro, ACID Pro Suite, Music Maker 2021 Plus Edition, Music Maker 2021 Premium Edition, Samplitude Music Studio, Samplitude Pro, Samplitude Pro Suite, SOUND FORGE Pro, SOUND FORGE Pro Suite
Please note: Due to the technical reasons, Music Maker Plus und Music Maker Premium are not available under the network licensing model.
Graphic and web design
- Xara Web Designer Premium, Xara Designer Pro X
What does Academic Edition mean?
We usually offer regular full versions of our software programs for EDU customers. A few programs do not allow network-usage or convenient multi-user utilization due to certain elements within the software (e.g., the In-App Store in Music Maker Editions, Movie Edit Pro Plus, etc.). For these exceptions we offer an Academic Edition as an alternative for site licenses, which ensures the user-friendly, convenient utilization you have come to expect from us. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding our Academic Editions, please contact us.
Can I use a coupon for EDU products?
No, this is not possible. EDU titles already include a strong discount and cannot be reduced any further. Please also note that coupons cannot be retroactively applied to orders that have already been billed. If you have any further questions, please contact us at: email@example.com.
Can I get an upgrade for my software at EDU pricing?
Yes, you can! All available products are marked as "Upgrade" in the headline. Simply put your preferred EDU Upgrade articles into your shopping cart and proceed to checkout. Please send your order confirmation along with your proof of EDU eligibility (student/teacher ID) as well as the serial key you wish to upgrade to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will my proof of EDU eligibility be stored for later purchases?
No, unfortunately, we cannot store your documents for later at this time. We are working on that, though! For now, please send your EDU proof with every order. Thank you for your understanding!
