ColorThink Licence

Hi,

I’m looking for details of the licence arrangements for ColorThink. Spcifically if it only allows single use on a single platform.

When purchasing one or several copies of ColorThink, there are a few
things to consider:

  1. ColorThink is an electronic download only (nothing physical ships).
    You can download the demo (useable within 30 days) or wait until the
    serial code is delivered via email. There is a download link enclosed
    with this email for you to acquire the appropriate download version.

  2. Each individual license is platform specific (Mac or Win). The Mac
    version has two compiled versions: one for OS v9 (Classic) or one for
    OSX and the serial code will work for either. The serial code for the
    Win version only works for that platform as well. The license is not
    transferable between platforms or users without CHROMiX approval. A
    Cross-Grade between platforms is available for $74.50 (each license) if
    this is needed, so some care should be given to this issue.

  3. A unique UserName and Serial Code will automatically be issued for
    each license. This nomenclature is important to consider. You will need
    to supply us with each end-user name and unique email address. If the
    users are permanent end-users with different email addresses, it is
    recommended that you supply each unique name and email. If these are
    going on Lab, Department or on Company machines, then a name for each
    will need to be supplied. This name should preferably be alphabetic
    (i.e.: MacOne, LabTwo, PCThree, etc.) and with no numeric content in
    the name. If there are no unique email addresses for each Mac or PC
    machine (in the case of a Lab, etc.), or these addresses are ambiguous
    (i.e.: DHCP, Firewalls, Routers, etc.), then we can use the email
    address of one administrator for all licenses. That administrator will
    then be the responsible contact for updates, revisions and alerts
    regarding ColorThink. The same administrator will also be the primary
    support liaison with CHROMiX for support or any other ColorThink
    issues.

Hope this helps.

Rick,

Thanks for the information. I still have one question. If I want to run ColorThink on my PowerMac and my PowerBook (both OSX) do I need to buy two licences?

I need to make a correction and supercede my earlier statement:

  1. ColorThink is an electronic download only (nothing physical ships).
    You can download the demo (without a serial number ColorThink will run
    for an unlimited time in a limited demonstration mode that allows full
    navigation of the modules but will restrict opening and graphing to the
    included demo (SWOP, sRGB) profiles.) or wait until the serial code is
    delivered via email for full, licensed functionality.

I grabbed the previous statement from an old, outdated blurb.

Thanks,

Hi,

ColorThink is licensed for the use by one user on up to two machines.

This is for exactly for your situation. Many users (including myself) have both a desktop and a notebook and want it in both places.

Steve

Looks like Pro is finally ready to released! :smiley:

I hope it’s possible with a license to run it on my Dual G5 desktop and in my Windows XP Dell Laptop.

almost, we are getting close

at this time we have separate cross-platform licenses so it does require you to purchase 2 licenses.

Am I hearing you would be interested in a cross-platform license bundle of some sort? We have been considering this option

Hi Steve,

Exactly!
It would be great if there is a crosss-platform bundle.

Based on another Ricks post about Colorthink Pro - estimated - price, personally i cannot afford purchasing two seperate licenses, so i will be half day without colorthink! :frowning:

Best Regards,
Bill.

We have been thinking about it and we will see what we can do…

Hi,
What if I get a new computer? Can I transfer my license to a different computer and what is involved?

Ed

You can move the software to the new computer. Just download the newest version from our site and then key in your username and serial number the first time you run it on the new machine.

Steve

Does the license of the software extend to multiple users of the same computer? For example, a Windows lab environment where many people use the same computer, each with their own computer account. The ‘personalization’/registration of the software (username, serial number) seems to be on a per-user-account basis. The only changes that I see made to a specific user account when ColorThink is registered is the in the “CHROMiX ColorThink2Pro Prefs” file in Application Data. Copying that file/directory structure to another user account (or the Default User account) on the same computer does not seem to work.

As far as I can figure out, each user that wishes to fire up ColorThink would need to know the username and serial number.

ColorThink doesn’t seem to leave any registration information in HKCU or anywhere else in the profile. What’s the trick that I’m missing here? Is this by design?

Any thoughts?

Jay;

Legally ColorThink is only a single license single
platform license. You need to buy copies for each
different user on a different computer. The only exception
(much like Adobe and Microsoft) is a singleuser that also
wants to run ColorThink on his/her laptop. That is ok
though.

Does that help?

Actually, I’m asking about multiple users on the same computer.

UserOne logs in to ComputerA, uses ColorThink for 4 hours, then logs out to get a sammich.

UserTwo just finished some pizza, logs in to ComputerA, uses ColorThink for 20 minutes, then leaves to find a hammock (nap time).

Is that more clear?

Thanks!

Jay;
Ah… yes, that would be fine. The license stays on that one computer in that case. No problem.

The problem that I’m having is that each user on the system is required to type in the CHROMiX license information (username and serial number). Is there a way around this?

Thanks!

Hi Jay,

We are working on this one.

It’s true that ColorThink has been set to save preferences in a user-level location and I hadn’t realized the problem this caused until recently.

I assume that you still want user preferences other than the serial number information to be stored on a per-user basis?

This seems like it should be a fairly simple issue but it gets more complicated the more we look at it.

Steve
