License Agreement

License Terms

  1. An unlimited number of user installations and an unlimited number of users simultaneously running LCModel/LCMgui on the licensed computer are allowed by one license. The licensed computer must be located within the group holding the license.
  2. Unlimited upgrades (including major new LCModel/LCMgui versions) may be freely downloaded from the website at any time. The license remains valid for these upgrades without time limit, except for (4) below.
  3. There is no time limit on the license, except for (4):
  4. One free replacement:
    • The license is restricted to one particular computer. If this computer (i.e., motherboard or CPU) is ever replaced, then you email the "Licensing Information" for the replacement computer (which must also be in your group), and a new license will be emailed to you at no charge. You then permanently remove LCModel from the computer being replaced.
    • If this replacement computer is ever replaced, then you would have to purchase an additional license (at the usual 50% discount for an additional license for the same group). Thus, a license includes one free replacement, not two. This is the only time limit (and only compensation) for (1)-(3) above.
