Ives, on my Mac they showed up in Library/Applications Support.

"It's 100%free!" = MY BUTT!

When first loaded, there's a dialog with a countdown stating:

"This Software is not free. If you continue to use it you are required to purchase a license.".

Not even going to try it. WHY DO THAT!?! If I liked it I might have considered buying the Pro version, but these cheap kind of schiester tricks are really annoying. TATA! :).

...BTW that doesn't mean my butt is 100% free. Not free at all.

If you get that dialog, you have enabled the Pro features, and will be gently reminded that _that_ version is not free. To disable the dialog and return to free mode, turn off "use Pro features" in settings.

I haven't tried it, my OS is too outdated - but I was under the impression that it includes the Pro functions, for your evaluation, & that if you wish to continue using THOSE functions then you need a license.

no, you have to pay for that butt. and quite rightly.

but what can THIS mean?

"A single license allows you to use TX16Wx Pro on one computer at a time. You can install it at as many computers as you like. "

is this orwellian doublespeak? or just a computer talking crap?

16 February 2015 at 6:01pmelcallio

It means a single license allows you to use TX16Wx at an unlimited number of computers, but _only one at a time_. I.e. if you have a work computer, a studio comp and a home comp, you can use the license at all of these, and move your project between them as you see fit. You cannot however have two computers use the license simultaneously. Thus you may not share a license between two people, but on the other hand you are not node-locked to a single machine either.

All in all a very fair license if I may say so myself.
