Taking into account the special situation caused by the Corona virus, dSPACE as their customer’s partner wants to ensure that you can use your dSPACE products flexibly in or from your home office.
The dSPACE license technology offers a wide range of possibilities for this, some of which are restricted by our EULA. dSPACE is lifting the restrictions on remote access to dSPACE software and the transfer of licenses between CmDongles for a limited period of time.*)
The options described below require CodeMeter licenses that you own, if your licenses have SMS until at least Q4/2017. The WibuKey and FlexNET licensing techniques used up to and including dSPACE Release 2017-A do not provide the necessary flexibility. This applies regardless of whether green WibuBox dongles or CmDongles with WibuBox emulation are considered. The options applicable for these techniques are marked accordingly.
More information on moving license between CmDongles is available in FAQ 092.
License borrowing is a rather new feature introduced with dSPACE Release 2019-A, but it can be used for all CodeMeter floating-network licenses even if software maintenance was dropped before Release 2019-A. It is recommended to use Installation Manager 5.4 with enhanced license borrowing features. License borrowing as well as deactivating and activating licenses is described in detail in the Installation Manager documentation. If you need help to use these features, please contact your local dSPACE product support.
Although the options mentioned above already describe a variety of flexible ways to enable continuous use of your dSPACE products even if you are forced to work in a home office, there may be use cases that cannot be solved with them.
In such cases please contact support with a description of your specific use case. The entire dSPACE team will help you find a solution.
With best wishes,
Your dSPACE Team

*) To enable our customers to use their dSPACE products in or from a home office, dSPACE is lifting two restrictions of the EULA. This measure is currently valid until December 31, 2021, but may be extended again if the current Corona crisis continues.
The dSPACE EULA can be read at www.dspace.com/go/eula .
EULA 2.2 (a) (ii) says:
By default, the binding of a single-user license to a license container may be changed by the Customer no more than three times within a period of twelve months and only while maintaining the terms of the license in other respects.
The limitation to three times per year is removed to allow unlimited transfer of licenses between dongles. This allows licenses to be shared between different users without having to move the dongles.
EULA 3.6 says:
No Internet or Network Applications. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Licensor or described in the software product description or software documentation of the respective software version of the Licensed Software, the Customer shall not be entitled to access (directly or indirectly) the Licensed Software or grant such access to third parties via Internet or network applications (e.g., Citrix, Microsoft Remote Desktop or other terminal/device servers).
The restriction is lifted. Customers, but not third parties, can remotely access the licensed software through network applications such as Citrix, Microsoft Remote Desktop or other screen sharing tools.
