Other Software Access to the Internet required for periodic online license validation and software update.
* The connection requirement applies to the software's host computer.
The SpursEngine output function requires a SpursEngine equipped device (sold separately).

This software uses the L.E.A.P.System for Internet based online user license validation. Upon purchase and installation, a user license validation process takes place during the first launch. This validation must be renewed periodically and requires an environment that provides access to the Internet.
There is no guarantee the license validation can occur without any issue in a secured or restricted Internet environment such as those found in schools or corporate intranets.
