A concurrent use license, also called a “network” or “floating” license, is tied to a network. The License Manager or License Administrator software is installed on a license server on the company network. The product can be installed on as many client machines as desired. The product usage is controlled by the license server and is limited to the number of concurrent seats that were purchased.

Grapher is a Windows program and is not compatible with Mac, Linux, or Unix operating systems. However, customers have run Grapher on a Windows emulator. Windows emulators allow a Windows environment to run on a Mac, Linux, or Unix operating system. Please know we do not test our software under these conditions. We recommend downloading the trial and testing the functionality yourself.
Grapher comes as both a 32-bit and as a 64-bit application. Upon the installation of Grapher, you will select which version to install. The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer’s processor (CPU) handles information. The 64-bit version of Grapher handles larger amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. Not all devices can run the 64-bit versions of Grapher.
To determine if your Windows operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit, open File Explorer or This PC.
- Right click on This PC or Computer in the navigation pane and select Properties.
- In the System information screen, find the System type entity. This will indicate if your device has a 32-bit or a 64-bit processor.
Product keys are very similar to serial numbers as both are used to activate Grapher.
Towards the end of 2016, Golden Software made a change to the way Grapher is licensed. If you purchased Grapher prior to December 2016, you most likely have a Grapher serial number. If you purchased Grapher after December 2016, you will have a Grapher product key.
