I need some clarifications on EULA and on licensing SketchUP Pro here in India.
Only very recently a new re-seller has been appointed for SketchUP sales in my Region / State in India.
- I had inquired for 2 copies of New Licenses for SketchUP Pro 2017 and he has given me a quote. (the current price on SketchUP website is $695 USD - which includes one year’s maintenance charges too). But here in my place, the dealer/vendor has quoted the price split into two - basic price for SketchUP Software and separate charges for maintenance and he has added 15% service tax on the maintenance charges.
In the SketchUP web site, I do not see any splitting of the price into two - it just says $695USD - which is inclusive of one year’s maintenance charges. Wondering why the vendor in my region split the price and added a tax to the maintenance charges.
- The second question is an important one. Kindly see the copy pasted text from SketchUP’s licensing web page:
“If you have a single-user license, you can authorize your license on up to two computers running either Windows or Mac OS X. If you already authorized your license on two computers, you can remove a license on a computer in order to use the license on a different computer”
It says one could authorize a single user license on 2 computers ( presuming one is for either home use or for use away from the office ). Autodesk & Adobe products too offer 2 activations for a single license - again for home use or for use away from the office provided only one license is used at any point of time.
I had specifically asked this question to this vendor - but he replied to me over phone that only one activation was allowed for each license - which is contrary to what is mentioned on SketchUP’s licensing page. I am giving below the actual link:
Could any staff from Trimble SketchUP clarify these questions. I would be greatly obliged if they clarified since I wish to make my purchase after getting clarifications. Was my vendor wrong ? Especially on the activation on 2nd computer for home use?
Thanks in advance
