It's a common problem. You want to run an analysis or open your CAE software but there are no licenses available for it. Who is using them?

The reporting tool is actually a standard FlexLM function which we just conveniently coded and packaged for you, so you can simply double-click the icon on your desktop to get a list of who is using what.

Don't ever risk your career by using cracked software!
THE EXCUSES: I only used it for my studies, I only wanted to evaluate the software, I didn't use if for commercial purposes, I only installed it, but never used it... Unfortunately, no reason holds up in court for the possession of stolen goods.
THE FINE? The full commercial purchase price of the software (for everything you had access to, whether or not it was even used!)
Students (under- or post-graduate) also has no recourse since they can get access to free legal student versions, or the full commercial versions through their respective universities. If you wish to evaluate any software or module that you do not have access to, please contact us, we will gladly arrange for evaluation licenses, even emergency licenses.
There is just no reason to access illegal software.
