This version requires a special USB Dongle key from Helix Technologies to be plugged into a USB port on the computer where you want to use the delta-T6 program.
When you run the program it will check for a valid dongle and run if one is found or exit if the dongle is not present.
This dongle version can be installed on network server computer with a program shortcut installed on the work station PC's on the network and the program can then be run by clicking the shortcut, provided that the dongle is present on the workstation PC.
A Typical USB Dongle
Helix delta-T6 has a new Helix Network License Manager software for multiple concurrent users. This licensing system uses a License Manager program installed on a server computer which controls the number of concurrent users on the network through a TCP/IP port on the server. This means the software can be installed on as many computers as required and it is then activated on a specific computer via TCP/IP communication with the server and License Manager program.
Prices of the multiple user Network version depends on the number of licenses and the mix of Dynamic, Professional and Standard versions of the program. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing.
