When you purchase our software (HyperRESEARCH or HyperTRANSCRIBE, or both together as a HyperBUNDLE), what you're actually purchasing is a "license key."
A valid license key will activate the full versions of the software on any platform (Macintosh or Windows) that we support. Simply download the Macintosh installer for installation on a Macintosh computer, and the Windows installer for installation on a Windows computer. The same license key can unlock either or both versions of the software. The downloads are the same downloads as the "trial versions," so if you've already downloaded and installed the trial or demo software, simply use the license key to "unlock" the software.
A valid license key "unlocks" the downloadable "free trial" versions of our software, removing trial version limits on numbers of codes and cases for HyperRESEARCH and allowing saving and printing in HyperTRANSCRIBE.
A valid license key is perpetual, meaning that if it unlocks a specific version of our software it will always unlock that version. It will also unlock any free updates (new versions) of the software. A major update with a fee associated with it will require a new license key to unlock.
The license is for concurrent use. This means that each license can be used on either a 'per user' basis (one user can install it on multiple computers - any mix of Macintosh or Windows -- provided only one copy is in use at a time) or a 'per seat' basis (install on a single computer and anyone with access to that computer can use it, or use key server technology to limit the number of concurrent users on a network). Nothing technically prevents you from using your license key to install and unlock our software on any number of computers of any mix of platforms (Mac/Win), it's on the honor system! Please adhere to the spirit in which we license our software. Install it where and on what platforms you need to for your use to do your work. However, you should ensure that you have purchased sufficient licenses to cover all concurrent users. If someone else is going to be using your license key at the same time as you, then they (or you) should buy another license.
The following are the End User License Agreements (EULA) you are agreeing to by using our software:
Researchware Software License Terms
This software license is a legal agreement (the "Agreement") between ResearchWare, Inc. and you, an organizational or individual user of HyperRESEARCH Free Limited Edition or HyperRESEARCH Full Edition. This Agreement applies to all parts of the HyperRESEARCH software (the “Software”): the HyperRESEARCH program, its documentation, its tools, its Installer, its license keys, and any other software, physical media, or printed information that is part of the HyperRESEARCH Software.
Read this Agreement carefully before installing the Software, because if you install, copy, or use the Software, you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not want to be bound by this Agreement, do not install or use the Software.
"Free Limited Edition" means an unlicensed copy of HyperRESEARCH, into which no license key has been entered. The Free Limited Edition limits the amount and type of data that can be entered. You can enter and purchase a license key to remove these limitations.
"Full Edition" means a copy of HyperRESEARCH which has been unlocked by entering a license key. There are no limitations on the amount or type of data that can be entered into a Full Edition.
If you have any questions about this Agreement, please contact ResearchWare, Inc.
License Grants: What You Can Do
You may install and use the Software on one or more personal computers or other compatible devices for your own use.
You may allow someone else to use your copy of the Full Edition, but only if no more than one copy of the Full Edition is in use at a time. If more than one person is using the Full Edition at any time, each person must have his or her own license.
You may give someone else a copy of the Installer so that they can install the Free Limited Edition. You may also distribute the Installer via Internet site, CD-ROM collection, or bundling with books or magazines. (However, you may not charge for the Installer, and it must be complete and unmodified.)
You may make any number of backup copies of the Installer.
You may install and use the Full Edition on a network server, but only if the network server implements the appropriate software or procedures so that the number of simultaneous users is limited to the number of licenses you own.
License Restrictions: What You Cannot Do
You may not use (or allow others to use) more than one of your copies of the Full Edition at a time, unless you have purchased enough licenses for each simultaneously-used copy.
You may not give someone else a copy of the Full Edition with your license key entered.
You may not share your license key with anyone else. (If the purchaser is an organization, the organization may assign and reassign license keys among its members, as long as no more than one copy per license is in use at a time.)
You may not copy any part of the Software or distribute copies, except for copies of the complete and unmodified Installer. You may not distribute a copy of the Installer that you have modified. You may not charge for the Installer.
You may not copy, distribute, or show anyone any copies of any part of the Software that you have modified in any way. This includes translating, adapting, or making any other changes to any part of the Software.
You may not decompile the Software, reverse engineer it, or otherwise try to read or duplicate its programming logic.
You may not export the Software into any country into which export is prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act and the regulations issued under this Act.
If you violate any of these license restrictions, ResearchWare may terminate your license. In this case, you must return or destroy all copies of any part of the Software, including the HyperRESEARCH program, its documentation, its tools, its Installer, its license keys, and any other software, physical media, or printed information that is part of HyperRESEARCH.
Ownership: You have a limited license to use the Software, with the rights granted in this license. ResearchWare retains the copyright and ownership, and all other rights to the Software and to any copies of it.
Disclaimer of warranties: This software is sold "As-Is". Researchware disclaims all warranties, either express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement, with respect to the software and any accompanying written or ancillary materials. The entire risk arising out of use or performance of the software remains with you.
Applicable Law: The law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts governs the interpretation of this Agreement and applies to all claims for breach of this Agreement, regardless of conflict of law principles. The laws of the jurisdiction where you live govern all other claims that arise under this Agreement, including but not limited to consumer protection, unfair competition, and tort.
Severability: If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Researchware Software License Terms

The term “Software” also includes any User’s Guide, any associated Software components (such as the Installer Application, as discussed in “Distribution of the Installer Application”), any License Key, any media, any printed materials in addition to the User’s Guide, and any online or electronic documentation.

- You may install and use the Software on one or more personal computers for your own use, provided that only one such copy of the Software is in use at any given time.
