Below is an actual example of an enquiry about licencing, and the response given. The names have been hidden to protect the ... umm ... innocent?
Hi, Back in early 2016 I downloaded a copy of Parallel Studio 2016 Update 2 and was granted licence 3ZCK-SGMWRMWZ under the open source contributor rules. At the time my hardware vendor sold me a system that was faulty so it was never installed. In January 2017 I received notification of an upgrade which was also downloaded. The upgrade fell within the 12 month window for the above licence so a new licence was not applied for. Parallel Studio 2017 Update 2. Neither of these versions are on the unsupported list, but in any case I don't require support after 40 years as a computer engineer. I have recently acquired a Ninja Development Platform (Supermicro) and again applied for an open source contributor licence, which was granted and the latest version of Parallel Studio was installed. Parallel Studio 2018 Update 2 Professional lic. # NHKS-THC8GNXZ However I also have some X100 cards which I'd like to work with in Ubuntu on another system. Tonight I attempted to install Parallel Studio 2017 Update 2 on the Ubuntu machine, to be told that the licence has expired. I tried the newer licence and it tells me that it is not valid for this version of Parallel Studio. Effectively there's no way I can use either of the earlier downloads. I don't believe the later version of Parallel Studio supports Ubuntu 16.04 and I'm also unsure if it even supports X100 cards any more. I would prefer to use the earlier tools with the X100 cards but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. Any ideas?
