AutoPIPE Vessel does not have an actual trial license. AutoPIPE vessel can only operate in one of 3 modes: Demo, Vessel, Vessel Enterprise. If the program is opened and a valid license is not available, the program will revert to demo Demo mode, even though LMT shows that a trail count down is ensuing.
After the trial license expires in LMT the program will continue to function in DEMO mode until correctly activated with a valid Vessel or Vessel Enterprise License. if interested in trying a full version, user needs to contact their Account / Sales manager requesting an evaluation license from the Bentley Licensing department.
Note: While using Trail / Demo mode, AutoPIPE Vessel will not allow the user to Save the model, use Calculate Strength, Generate Drawings, or perform Cost Estimation. These features are only available in the full licensed version.
