Licensing Options

A VisSim license is a perpetual license for the version purchased. A new license comes with one year of Software Maintenance, which entitles the owner to all version upgrades, bug fixes, and technical support for the year. In addition, the owner of the license is entitled to a 1-year timed license for home or laptop use. Users have the option to purchase Software Maintenance in subsequent years. Software Maintenance is approximately 20% of the cost of a new license.

Types of Licenses

  • Soft Node Locked. VisSim is locked to a hard drive via a license transaction. The VisSim licenser allows unaided transfer of the license to a new machine.

  • Hardware Key Lock. A USB key "dongle" (additional fee) contains the VisSim license. A USB key can be moved to any workstation with a VisSim installation and VisSim will run. The key is configured at the factory to hold the license. It can be upgraded remotely to add license features at a later date. A driver for the hardware key is included on the CD and can be downloaded here

  • Floating Network License. In this configuration, VisSim is installed to a server, and each connected workstation is set up with a client install to point to the server. A license transaction is performed to set the maximum number of concurrent users. A floating network license costs 50% more than a single seat license.

System Requirements

VisSim runs on Windows based machines including XP, Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows 7 & 8 (32-bit and 64-bit). Users have reported success running VisSim on Linux and Intel-based Apple Macs using a Windows Emulator called WINE. VisSim only requires 25 MB RAM for small applications, but can use much more RAM for large applications or large user matrices. While there are no special requirements for the graphics, it is recommended that a reasonably powerful graphics card be used, especially if 3D graphics are important.
