Home Use License

Are Home Use licenses available through a Solid Edge subscription? I would like to pay for one Solid Edge subscription but install Solid Edge on both my work computer and home computer. For instance, I know that Autodesk Inventor supports home use licenses with their subscription service.

Based on personal experience I say yes.

We have nine seats at my workplace, three of us have home licences. More could if they wanted to but only three have interest.

Hi there @David_McMahon,

 

Our second seat is on subscription, but never the less, even for our perpetual seat we don't get the option for a home lisence at all, only a travel license....or as it is for us here in New Zealand. [although...I take my seat with me, on a Surface Pro3 anyway]

This is similar to an option I suggested for licensing.....to use an online check-out [like how existing floating licensing happens for multi-seat install sites] for the user to run Solid Edge on any PC of their choosing, at any one time during the subscription period for that license.

@SeanCresswell, I show an "at home license" in addition to travel license when I look at that page with my account.

Thanks for all of your feedback but its still not completely clear to me if a home use license is available if you only have a subscription.

My bad. Subscription is the term agreement, right? Month to month or whatever.
