Ready to buy a license?

Here is some background information on the process

License information

You can evaluate Lights-Out for a period of 30 days. When the evaluation has expired, Lights-Out will revert to a Community Edition mode. In this mode, Lights-Out is free for personal use only.

To use the full functionality after 30 days, a license is required. A license may be purchased at any time during or after the 30 day evaluation period. The purchase of a license entitles you to activate Lights-Out on the number of licensed servers.

The purchase of a license includes 1 year support and maintenance which will cover all updates to Lights-Out published during that period. Support and maintenance can be extended annually.

If you do not extend support and maintenance after expiration, the license is still valid but you are no longer entitled to use newer versions.

A detailed description can be found in the blog on Day 29: Licensing, Editions and Features
and Day 30:  Maintenance and Support.

Feature Matrix

Use the Feature Matrix to compare the free Community Edition with a Home, Professional or Business Edition.

You can use each license on each platform! There is no platform limitation, i.e. you can use a Home Edition on a Windows Server 2016. The only limitation concerns company users, they absolutely need a business edition independent of the platform.

Note: All prices shown below are based on Euro and include 19% German VAT. Your actual price may be different because of currency conversion and different local VAT. Your actual VAT is calculated during check out.

Upgrading a 1.x license

License purchased on or after August 1, 2016

If you have purchased a Lights-Out 1.x license on or after August 1, 2016, the upgrade to Lights-Out 2.0 is free. You should have received the new license already.

License purchased before August 1, 2016

If you have a valid 1.x license, you are entitled to a 33% discount for a new Lights-Out 2.0 license.

To perform a license upgrade, please install Lights-Out 2 first! Then proceed as documented in the manual.

Buying a license

Please click on a “buy now” link above or buy directly from within Lights-Out.

The actual reseller is Share-It, a Digital River Company. Share-It provides a printable invoice after check-out and calculates the applicable VAT.

You will receive a confirmation email shortly after your payment has been accepted by Share-It. Now your license file will be created and typically mailed within the next 15 minutes from Green-IT Software.

Please check your spam folder! Some email providers (especially Google) move the license file into the spam folder.
Should you still have no license file after 2 days please contact orders@green-it-software.com with your order number.

 

For all other question about your order, payment or invoice please visit Share-It Customer Care Center or the Digital River Shopper Support.
