Purchase AIMAll Professional



AIMAll operates either in Professional mode or Standard mode.

To operate AIMAll in Professional mode, a valid aimallpro.lic file containing a computer-specific (node locked) AIMAll Professional license key must be present in the main AIMAll directory or a valid pair of AIMAll Professional site license files must be present in the AIMAll directory.

AIMAll Professional enables some major new features compared to the Standard mode.  Currently, these new features involve the visualization of data, the use of multiple processors (shared memory only) for AIMAll jobs and AIMQB GUI batch jobs with an unlimited number of wavefunctions.  Some upcoming new features may also only be enabled in AIMAll Professional.

AIMAll Professional licenses must be purchased.

Purchases of AIMAll Professional contribute to the development of the AIMAll package.

AIMAll Standard

The AIMAll Standard operating mode is the default mode.  It does not require an AIMAll Professional license and is free of charge, though registration is requested.   The AIMAll Standard operating mode imposes a limit on the size of the molecular wavefunction data that can be used for running shared memory multi-processor calculations and for generating visualization-related data files (*.*viz) by AIMQB, AIMExt, AIMInt and AIMSum, and displaying them with AIMStudio.  This limit is 12 or fewer atoms and 400 or fewer primitive basis functions.  AIMAll Standard also imposes a limit of 3 wavefunctions per batch job when using AIMQB in GUI mode.  Depending on the evolution of AIMAll, future versions of AIMAll may also impose limits on the Standard mode for other new features.

If you have not already done so, please Register to Download AIMAll and use it in Standard mode.

AIMAll Professional

The AIMAll Professional operating mode does not impose any multi-processor limits, visualization limits or other limits on the size of the molecular wavefunction data.  AIMAll Professional does not impose any limits on the number of wavefunctions per batch job when using AIMQB in GUI mode.  In order for AIMAll to operate in AIMAll Professional mode on a computer, either a valid aimallpro.lic file containing a computer-specific (node locked) AIMAll Professional license key must be present in the main AIMAll directory or a valid pair of AIMAll Professional site license files must be present in the AIMAll directory.  AIMAll Professional licenses must be purchased.

AIMAll Professional License Packs

AIMAll Professional licenses are typically sold in "Packs" for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 separate, specific computers of any kind (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux).  Each node of a cluster is considered a separate, specific computer.  In order to accomodate large Linux clusters, a special AIMAll Professional License Pack consisting of a site license for Linux computers is also available, which allows the use of AIMAll Professional on an unlimited number of Linux computers (including any Linux cluster nodes) at a designated site.

The price of an AIMAll Professional License Pack is dependent on both the number of computers to be licensed as well as the intended use of AIMAll (Commercial or Non-Commercial).

Purchases include email support and free AIMAll Professional updates for the licensed computers.

An aimall-serialnumber.txt file is generated automatically in the main AIMAll directory (e.g., C:\AIMAll\aimall-serialnumber.txt) the first time you run any of the AIMAll programs in Standard mode on a computer.

After we receive your aimall-serialnumber.txt files, we will Email you corresponding aimallpro.lic files.   An aimallpro.lic file for a given computer should be saved in the main AIMAll directory (e.g., C:\AIMAll\aimallpro.lic).

If you purchased a License Pack for N computers, be sure to Email N separate aimall-serialnumber.txt files, one for each of the N different computers you wish to run AIMAll Professional on.
