Pioneer

I want to discuss the Plant simulation first time at the workplace, Since it will be a new thing here,going directly for trial will be too fast. Is it possible to install free viewer license to just check the software and view some example model.

from Where I can  install that?

Thanks in Advance!!

There doesn't seem to be a way to install the software with a viewer licence.

 

However, plant simulation models can be opened on systems which do not have the application installed with something called a 'Pack and Go' feature.

For this to work, it is to be noted that the creator of the model makes it available to you as a 'Pack and Go' (.exe) file.

 

It would be rather practical to get a trial version to be free to open any available (.spp) file.

Hope it helps.

But Trial version is only for 30 days? What if 30 days are consumed initially, is the trial version extended?

Viewer licence is more or less a synonym for no license.

Therefore installing Plant Simulation w/o a valid license, you can load and run

the simulation models w/o data in-/output.

You just need the installation SW.

You can download the installation SW from the GTAC Server provided you have

access ( for example through a maintenance contract)

Or you should get in touch with Siemens/Tecnomatix sales for the installation SW (link)

Add: if a license - for example the 30 days trial - expires or gets otherwise invalid the software automatically falls back to the "Viewer License". You are asked when starting if you want to use the Viewer License if the given license is invalid.

is it possible to get the trial license 2 times?

I would also advise to install the trial version. After 30 days (or earlier if you like) you can configure in the preferences dialog (File > Preferences > License) that you want to use a Viewer License. Then you can use the software as long as you like. But, of course, you cannot model with a Viewer License.

 

You can then even copy the installation folder to other computers. Plant Simulation can be started without properly installing the software on the computer (although the .spp file type will not be registered, so you cannot start Plant Simulation by double-clicking an .spp file).
