Firstly please note that single-user node-locked maintenance license(AD-CCES-MNT-N1) is a maintenance license for Single user node locked license (AD-CCES-NODE-1) which means, a CrossCore Embedded Studio license includes one year of updates, upgrades and lifetime support. The optional annual maintenance provides access to updates and upgrades released during the maintenance period. Updates released after the maintenance period will not run until maintenance is renewed. Renewing maintenance provides instant access to all previous updates.


A user may install and use new versions of their product, and updates to it, only if they have an active subscription. If they try to install this in newer version of CCES update, when subscription has expired, it may throw an error.Subscription starts when a full license is activated, and ends one year from that date unless a maintenance license is purchase and activated, renewing the subscription period for a further year.


Subscription example: If a full license with a one year subscription interval is activated on September 1, 2017. This license can be used with products that have release dates up to and including September 1, 2018. To use new products with release dates beyond this date, the user needs to activate a new license. Note that you continue to use products that were released before the subscription ends even after the subscription itself has expired.


However this does not mean that you can not use the License Serial number any more.In fact, it is a Permanent license.
