Is it possible to use a trial version of RFEM 5 on a virtual machine?

Answer

Unfortunately, it is not possible to run any single-user licenses on virtual machines. Licensing is neither possible with the USB dongle nor with a softlock license.

The test or trial version of RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8 is a time-limited version that is controlled by a softlock. Therefore, the trial version of RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8 cannot be tested on a virtual machine.

In general, it is possible to operate a licensed version of RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8 on a virtual machine. For this, however, you would need a network license.

The same applies to the test versions of the stand-alone programs SHAPE-THIN, RX-TIMBER, PLATE-BUCKLING, CRANEWAY, and COMPOSITE BEAM.
