FAQ: Vault for a single user

Post by ericsink » Thu Feb 19, 2004 8:39 am

Vault (version 2.0 and later) is available free of charge for use by a single user.

To take advantage of this opportunity, simply download Vault and install it. You do not need to register with us.

You also do not need a serial number of any kind. For licensed installations, Vault requires serial numbers which specify the number of licenses which have been purchased. However, for this so-called "implicit single user edition", no serial number is required. When Vault is installed with no serial numbers at all, it will behave as if there is exactly one user license.

In fact, please be aware that this freebie license will disappear as soon as you add any serial numbers to your server. For example, suppose you start using Vault free of charge as a single user. Later, you decide you need to expand your Vault server from one user to two. When this happens, you will actually need to purchase two Vault licenses from us, not just one.

Please understand that we cannot guarantee technical support help to individuals using Vault in this no-cost manner. You are welcome to make use of the online support resources here on support.sourcegear.com. However, we must preserve our technical support resources for SourceGear's paying customers.
