For COSMO-RS, DFTB, and ReaxFF, there is no separate pricing for the Graphical Interfaces, so it’s always included in the price and you can use these on all machines where the engine itself is licensed.

For ADF and BAND, a few experts still wish to use only the ADF (BAND) binaries, without the GUI. In that case, we can offer discounted prices (so prices remain the same for current users with a binary-only ADF or BAND license). Contact us for a price quote excluding GUI’s if desired.

Yes. For a bundle for x cores and y GUI copies, the license fee is 2 times the license for ADF on x cores with y copies of ADF-GUI. This bundle allows you to run ADF, BAND, DFTB, and ReaxFF on x cores. COSMO-RS calculations only run interactively through the GUI or the command line. The y copies of the integrated GUI are fully licensed for use with all modules. Academic users may also use MOPAC free of charge with the ADF modeling suite on all GUI-licensed machines. Ask us for a detailed price quote.

Not for a host-locked license. In such a case one should order an 8-core license, or select a 4-core machine to install ADF on.

You can start immediately. After we have received your informal purchase order confirmation, your signed license agreement, and your machine information, you will receive a temporary license until the invoice is paid.

In case of any type of license upgrade, we will only charge price differences and only for the remaining time period of the contract, thus making it easy and attractive to upgrade.

For multi-year licenses we can change the machine info once a year when we send a new license file for the next year. Certain exceptions are possible at SCM’s discretion.
You can of course always upgrade your license to include more CPUs.
