We are an academic group wishing to purchase a Fortran compiler as user-subroutine with ABAQUS. I have searched online and saw that Intel Fortran compiler 11.1+Microsoft visual studio 2008+ABAQUS 6.10 is potentially a compatible combination. We have already gotten our ABAQUS software however there are a few questions regarding the Fortran compiler that I'm not very clear of and wish to get some answers on. Please help me.
(1) We have a total of 2 professors and about 8 students in our group. Do we have to purchase the 2-concurrent user academic + 8 students? Or do we have to purchase 1 academic and use it for the entire group?
(2) Are the license good for lifetime? Or do we have to pay the renewal fee every year? Because it seems the renewal cost listed is for support service.
(3) Suppose we have bought this. How many machines can we install? We each have our own computers in our lab and we need our computers to run different jobs at the same time. Would 1 license do it all for us? or multiple license for each machine?
So, anyone who have the answer to these questions please share. Much appreciated!
