License Definitions and Details
Licenses are leased as concurrent use licenses within the campus wide pool.
The Concurrent Use License (CUL) may be installed on multiple machines but a license server will regulate the usage to the number of licenses leased. A CUL requires an internet connection to the license server in order to operate.
Using Siemens NX available through this program for commercial purposes is expressly excluded.
Note: Licenses available through this program renew annually each June. Each annual license will terminate and the software included in this program will stop operating after expiration of the subscription term unless renewed by the user.
Run the setup.exe program to install. You will likely run into an error "There are no licenses available". Set the environment variable "UGS_LICENSE_BUNDLE" to ACD30, ACD31.
