License: Archforms Ltd., will no longer sell Software based on Code Cycles. Purchase is for the 2020 versions Licensed through December 2020, but which cease to be useable after January 1st 2021.
This is done because each year updated Materials Libraries, Codes and their interpretations change requiring annual additions and changes to the programs. New versions are required each year to assure all calculations and material selections will meet the current Code and material ICC and ESR Reports.
Purchase of 2021 and successive version will come with an Activation code that will restore the function of earlier software versions for ongoing projects (without loss of any data) for that year.
Always keep .pdf or printed copies of completed project files for future reference.
