FAQ About The EE Circle Tools
Q1: What are the factors that determine your license prices?
A1: Our license pricing strategy follows the model of software distributed as a part of a technical book.
Q2: How often your tools are updated?
A2: Not often at all. The updating cycle is somewhere between 6 to 12 months. We have no fill-time developers. All of our serious development happen only during weekends and holidays.
Q3: If I purchase a regular license tied with one MAC address, can I have the license be transferred to another computer with different MAC?
A3: You get allowance of new license once per year per tool. Regenerated licenses retain the same user information (name, e-mail address and etc), tool versions, and the expiration date with only the MAC address changed.
Q4: Do I get automatic license upgrade when a new version is released?
A4: It depends. This is tied into the versioning of tools. Each tool has assigned a major-version-number and a minor-version-number. For instance, Version 1.1 means major-version=1, minor-version=1. Or Version 2.0 means major-version=2, minor-version=0.
Q5: What about academic licenses?
A5: It's our long-term commitment to be able to give students/staffs/faculties in educational institutions free access to fully functional tools. However, we are still experimenting to find a reliable scheme to do that. If each academic license incurs multiple questions after questions, we will get overwhelmed quickly. Please stay tuned.
Q6: How do I uninstall a tool, or move it around in my computer's file system?
A6: Each EE Circle tool is packed within one directory tree (denoted as $TOOL). It is totally self-contained: no dependency on any files beyond the $TOOL level, nor has anything been written into the system registry. Therefore, you can simply delete the $TOOL tree, or move it to a different directory.
