CFS® can be downloaded from our Download page.
After you install it, you will be able to run CFS in "light" mode.
If you wish to purchase a license for the
full version, you simply need to complete the order form (see below)
and submit it to RSG Software.
CFS License Options
- Network License – this license utilizes a USB key attached to a server and
accessed by the CFS software over your network. One license allows one concurrent user
of the software. The USB key may also be attached to your computer, and moved from one
computer to another.
The price for a network licenses is US$800 which includes the USB key. If additional
licenses are purchased at a later date, they will include an additional USB key,
which may be connected to the same server as the original key.
Note: lost or stolen hardware keys are not replaceable.
New licenses must be purchased at regular price.
- Network License Upgrade – If you already own a network license for a previous version of
CFS, you may upgrade to a CFS 10 network license at a reduced upgrade price.
The same USB key will be used for the new license.
- CFS 9.0 network license upgrade: US$150
- CFS 8.0 network license upgrade: US$350
- CFS 7.0 network license upgrade: US$550
- CFS 6.0 network license upgrade: US$750
- CFS 5.0 network license upgrade: US$750
- Standalone License – this is a time-based and usage-based license associated
with a specific computer. To order a standalone license, download and install
CFS 10, then choose Apply Standalone License from the Tools menu in CFS. This
will display the computer code for that computer, which you can copy and paste
into the CFS Order Form (see below).
The price for a standalone license is US$120 per year, and may be used with future
versions of CFS without any upgrade fee.
This license includes a usage counter. For each year purchased, you receive 73000
license units. These license units will decrease as CFS calculations are performed
and special features are utilized. For example, calculating section properties uses
1 unit, calculating section strength uses 2 units, and calculating a member check
uses 4 units. If the license units run out before the expiration, you may extend
the license by purchasing another year of usage.
Note: if your computer experiences a hardware failure, you may not be able to recover
or reapply the standalone license. You cannot obtain credit toward a standalone
license for a different computer, so use care in purchasing a multiple year license.
CFS10 Calculation Module
The CFS10 Calculation Module is an optional
software component for automating CFS calculations. It is not required to use the
full functionality of the CFS software.
The price for this module is US$500, and it requires a network or standalone license
for CFS Version 10. One purchase of the module is sufficient for any number of CFS licenses.
The network license purchase requires a USB key which will be shipped by Fedex.
The shipping charge is $20 for most US destinations, US$35 for Canada destinations,
and US$70 for other countries.
There is no shipping charge for a standalone license. A license code is issued by email.
