UltraEdit Suite Licensing

If you need to discuss your licensing requirements for UltraEdit Suite, please contact our IDM Computer Solutions licensing specialists.

We can supply any UltraEdit Suite license including Perpetual Named User Licenses, Concurrent User Licenses, Educational Licenses, and Upgrades.

Named User: You may install the software on up to 3 machines, on any combination of supported platforms, provided you are the sole user of the software. If you purchase multiple Named User licenses, each individual Named User will receive a separate license ID.

Concurrent User: Licensed per machine where multiple users access the application but only one at a time. For example If multiple people need to use the software at one time, then you would simply need enough concurrent licenses to cover the concurrent usage. For example, if you had the software installed on a server with 100 users, but only 10 people needed to use it at a time, you would need 10 concurrent licenses.

Educational Licenses: An educational version of the Named or Concurrent user License is available to non-profit educational institutions.To qualify for a student/teacher or University/classroom Educational discount, you must be enrolled in an accredited public or private university or college (including community, junior, or vocational college) that grants degrees requiring not less than the equivalent of two years of full-time studies.

You will be asked to provide proof of entitlement such as a scan of a student ID card for verification.

Extended Upgrades: By selecting an extended upgrade option you receive all releases for either 1 or 2 years, not just the next single release. Get all major and minor releases of UltraEdit, enjoy performance enhancements, get the latest feature and stay current with development trends.

Unlimited Upgrades: Never pay for an upgrade, purchase with unlimited upgrades and you will receive free perpetual upgrades for the life of the product.

If you do not purchase with extended/unlimited upgrades then to receive updates after the first release you will need to purchase an upgrade license. e.g. Purchase v17.10 without extended upgrades, get v17.20 for free, have to pay upgrade fee to get v17.30.

All licenses come with:

  • Win, Mac and Linux versions.
  • 1 free upgrade to the next release e.g. v17.10 to v17.20.
  • Unlimited lifetime technical support via email.

License Agreements


Is the license permanent (perpetual) or temporal (time-limited)?

UltraEdit Suite is available as a Perpetual License. When you purchase a license, you are free to use the software in perpetuity.

Can I upgrade / downgrade my license?

Yes. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Can I add more developers to my license?

Yes, you can add users to a current license, and co-term if required.

What type of support do I get?

All UltraEdit Suite licenses come with unlimited lifetime technical support via email. Visit the IDM Support Page for further information.

Does UltraEdit Suite require online / offline activation?

IDM Computer Solutions products support offline activation.

Can I buy an old product version?

IDM do not sell previous versions directly, however purchasing a license will provide the customer with a key for the current version, which will also work with previous versions. IDM will provide a paid customer with a link to download a previous version, but please note that there is limited support for previous versions.

Can a license be transferred from one developer to another?

Yes, provided the license is owned and disseminated by the developer's employer. The license includes built-in protections so that its permitted use is not exceeded. Licensing within a corporate environment is per-unique-user, per-system. The unique user can be reassigned as is reasonable for typical employee turnover. However if a "floating" license is needed, where multiple people might be accessing the license on a single system, a concurrent license purchase would be required.

Is there a discount for academic use?

Yes. Fully functional discounted educational versions are available to non-profit educational institutions.

Are bulk discounts available?

Yes. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and get a personalized quote.
