Software Installation

Depending on your license model, Molecular Conceptor can be installed in two different configurations, a single-user Standalone Version or a multi-user Network Version. In this page you will find the instructions for installing and running Molecular Conceptor in both versions.


Molecular Conceptor - Standalone Version

The Standalone version allows to install Molecular Conceptor on individual workstation. For each license you purchase you are sent a CD and a HASP protection key (a small device connected to the USB port). In order to run, the software checks the presence of the key. Therefore to switch between two computer (for example between your home computer and your work computer), you just have to move the key between them.
