About the licensed version

Installed Version: After purchasing, you are sent a two part permanent unlock code by email from our sales department. Download and install the trial version from this website, then start it using 'Run as administrator' (Windows 10, 8.x, 7). Press Enter Key, then enter the two part unlock code in the two indicated fields and press OK. It will validate the entries and acknowledge the code. You do not have to use 'Run as administrator' again.

USB Version: You will either be sent a physical USB Flash Drive or you will work with our tech support to install the software package on your own USB drive. The software is tied to the USB flash drive. You will start the software, then you will be asked to accept the license agreement and enter your name and company name. There is no trial for the portable USB version, please evaluate the installed version 30 day trial.

How many computers/VMs can I install a licensed installed version on?

Two - a desktop and laptop as long as you are the primary user of both.

Relevant EULA section:
Applications Software--REGISTERED VERSION. You may install and use one copy of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT on a single computer. The primary user of the computer on which the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is installed may make a second copy for his or her exclusive use on a portable computer.

Is the software tied to a physical or VM computer?

Installed Version: The Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool software is not tied to the hardware of a machine, so if it needs to be moved to a new computer, the end-user simply uninstalls from the old machine and reinstalls a new trial copy on the new machine, then enters the unlock code info assigned to them.

USB Version: The software is not tied to a computer because the software runs from the USB flash drive and may be moved at will between Windows computers. However, the software is tied to the specific USB flash drive - you will need our assistance to move it to another drive should the need arise.

How are upgrades handled? (ie. is there a maintenance plan?)

There is no maintenance plan for the Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool. The NetScanTools Pro Maintenance Plan does not cover upgrades to the Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool - they are separate applications sold separately.

The Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool license may be used indefinitely, however, changes in Windows operating systems and switch firmware may preclude an extremely long use.

All version 2.x minor upgrades to the Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool are FREE to download from SwitchPortMapper.com. To upgrade, the end user simply installs the latest trial version over the top of the current version. The USB version users download a special patch that upgrades the USB version to the latest version. When we reach v3.0, there will be an upgrade fee similar to the v1 to v2 upgrade fee.

Major Version Upgrade Fee: when we went from version 1.x to version 2.0 in November 2012, it was over 7 years since the initial release of 1.0. We do not expect to spend that long with the 2.x series, but the single quantity v1.x to v2.x upgrade fee per license is $95. You may upgrade a number of v1.x licenses to an equal number of v2.x licenses.
