Hi vrf-ers,

We realize there may be some confusion about exactly what changes are in VEE
6.2. We'll try to clear it up here, though some of the information may be a
bit redundant with earlier postings we've made.

VEE 6.2 reverts to a licensing scheme that's very similar to revision
6.0/6.01 and earlier. It also fixes the same defects that the 6.11 patch
fixed

When you buy VEE 6.2, it comes with a "Product Key"--an alphanumeric
string--that you type in to enable VEE on a computer forever.

If you want to run VEE 6.2 as an evaluation, all you have to do is install
it and it will run for 30 days, then will require a Product Key if you want
to continue using it.

The other part of this is what you no longer have to worry about in 6.2:

- you no longer need to go to a licensing web site to enable the product,
because the evaluation mode no longer requires a license, and the purchased
product is shipped with the Key included.

- the product is no longer "node-locked". You can install it on any
computer, or multiple computers (see next point). The computer does not need
any kind of LAN interface or connection to run VEE.

- we have liberalized the Terms and Conditions of use with VEE 6.2. You can
now install it with its Product Key on multiple computers, as long as you
only use it on one of those computers at a time. This means you can legally
install Pro temporarily on a computer on a test line, for example. Or with
one purchase you can use your VEE at work and at home.

- you no longer need to worry about getting a CD and manuals. We ship a CD
and hardcopy manual kit with every unit ordered. Not a licensing change, but
a good simplification introduced with 6.2. 6 months full support is also
included.

And of course, if you buy 6.2, you will be guaranteed a free 7.0 upgrade
when we release it next year.

We hope the summary is useful.

As posted earlier, T&M World has referenced many of these details at:
