Tips & Tricks




Dlubal Software provides students the complete range of its products during their studies free of charge. The licensing is done by a so-called softlock, taking into account the following.

1. To activate the license, an Internet access is required.
2. If the license has been activated once, you have to transfer the license to another computer before reinstalling the operating system, swapping hardware components or replacing the computer completely.
3. It is not possible to use the license on virtual machines.

The procedure of transferring the license is described in the Software Licensing document (PDF).
