Seeking Software License Transfer Info?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a MicroVAX II I purchased from a company that phased it out.  At the
 time Digital still existed.  The company paid the $300 fee to have the VMS
 license transferred to me.  I now have a PAK for 8-user VMS on a MicroVAX II.
 I purchased a Pascal sing
le user license and SSU license as well.  According to the VMS SPD, 7.2 is the
 last version supported on the MicroVAX II.  I also have a MicroVAX 3100 I use
 the hobbiest license with.  I'm about to upgrade it to 7.3.  Is there any way
 to convert these old
 PAKS/licenses to be current for a different machine?  I want to retain their
 value.  For example, can the MicroVAX II license be converted to a MicroVAX
 3100/90 license?  Could I still use the hobbiest license for the layered
 products (non-commercial use

The Answer is :

  You have reached the OpenVMS Wizard, and not the license transfer Wizard.
  Please visit the Software Licensing Website for details on license
  transfers.  In the OpenVMS FAQ, also please review the section "How do
  I obtain or transfer an OpenVMS license?"
  Information and the License Unit Requirements Table (LURT) for various
  VAX and Alpha platforms are available at the Software Licensing website,
  and a pointer to the LURT and related information is in the FAQ.  (The
  OpenVMS Wizard would not expect a license for what is likely an ancient
  OpenVMS VAX version to have much value -- without also having a Right
  to Upgrade license, that is.)
