PC-DMIS License

PC-DMIS Copyright and License Information

PC-DMIS software is protected by United States and International copyrights. PC-DMIS software is developed by Wilcox Associates, Inc., a Hexagon Metrology company, and is sold worldwide by Hexagon Metrology, its subsidiaries and authorized distributors.

PC-DMIS software is licensed, not sold. Use of PC-DMIS requires you to accept the terms of the end-user license agreement (EULA). This agreement outlines the publisher's rights under copyright, and the user's acceptance requirements in order to use the software. Full English text of the EULA is at the bottom of this page.

Is your copy of PC-DMIS Legal?

There are various reasons why you might have a non-legal copy of PC-DMIS, especially if you are not the original owner of the equipment. They are outlined below:

Used Equipment

The PC-DMIS license agreement only allows for "pass-along" transfers of the license to a party other than the original purchaser under limited, specific circumstances, which are outlined in the license agreement. Generally, PC-DMIS licenses obtained with equipment purchased at auction, through a used equipment broker/dealer or another third party are not valid under the End User License Agreement. The License requires any copies of PC-DMIS obtained in this way to be specifically accepted by the current owner and have all Software Maintenence Agreement (SMA) fees paid and current for the license to be valid.

Purchasers of used equipment should use great caution when purchasing the machine to ensure that the PC-DMIS license is transferable and valid before the purchase. In addition, purchasers should be careful that the transferred license dongle (described below) actually belongs to that machine. Often a purchaser discovers that a broker or auctioneer sold a machine with a PC-DMIS dongle that is not configured for the machine sold, and as a result PC-DMIS cannot be used.

If you have a copy of PC-DMIS that you obtained with a used machine, you can check the validity of your license, or request a license transfer, (with a valid SMA or the purchase of an SMA) by calling Customer Relations 855.4.HEXMET or use the online form.

Benefits of an SMA

  • Access to technical support by phone and email
  • Access to version upgrades during the SMA period
  • Knowledge that your PC-DMIS license has been legally transferred and is valid.

Other Situations

PC-DMIS requires use of a hardware key to operate, sometimes called a "dongle" or "hasp". This key attaches to a USB or serial port. If your copy of PC-DMIS does not require the use of a key, the software is probably not legal.

If you purchased your copy of PC-DMIS from someone other than Hexagon Metrology or one of our authorized distributors, the software is probably not legal.

If you are using a "cloned" hardware key purchased from a third party, your software is not legal.

To purchase a legal copy of PC-DMIS, please call 855.4.HEXMET or use the online form.
