    Use in virtualized environments:

    Software based licenses:

    Operation of the ColorGATE software on virtual machines is not permitted with software based licenses.

    Hardware based licenses ("hardware dongle"):

    If the virtualization solution supports USB, ColorGATE software can usually be operated with hardware based licenses. Please note, however, that ColorGATE cannot provide support for problems that occur in the context of the virtualization solution. There may be restrictions when printers, measuring devices or cutting plotters are connected via USB. In addition, the hardware requirements must be exclusively available as resources for the virtual machine to ensure a high-performance operation of the software. For these reasons, we recommend using virtualized environments for testing purposes only.
