My client provides me an ID and password and his server URL (5.0). I've download MemoQ 5.0 (not yet purchased license) from Kigray's site. I wonder:

1- if I can log-in and use the MemoQ without purchasing my own license for my PC? Or I must obtain a license for logging in and use the resources from such server?

2 - Can I use lower version (say 4.5) to log and use this server?

Thanks for your support in advance.

Cheers,

Trial version should be sufficient, versions must match Nov 1, 2012

As long as the trial period (45 days) hasn't expired, you should be able to access the server.

No, the client and server major versions must match.

license must be obtained upon trial period? Nov 2, 2012

Thank Dominique for your feedback. As I understand, license must be obtained after such trial period (45 days)? As few of clients use MemoQ, I have not scheluded to purchase one. Is there any possible solution to continue access to the server, (for example, asking client to provide license)?

Yes, that's the idea: if you want to continue using it in full-featured mode after the trial period has expired, you need to have a license. After the 45 days, memoQ switches to "memoQ4free" mode, in which it has very limited capabilities (for instance, you can't use it to connect to a server).

Some users of memoQ server (typically agencies) have "mobile" licenses that they can lend for the duration of a project. You should ask your memoQ clients whether they have such licenses and whether they would be willing to lend you one during forthcoming projects.

Highly appreciate your advice. I'll ask my client if they can lend the mobile license. It would be great if they do so.

Own licence and trial version together? Mar 8, 2016

Hi,

A new client requested me to download trial version and use memoq server with the credentials they will give me, which means that I will have two memoQ apps on my desktop.

Would it cause any problem? Is there anything to pay attention in this process?

Thanks

@zeki guler - no need to have two copies Mar 9, 2016

Your client may not be aware of the fact that you actually have your own copy. No need for two copies (I am not sure whether this is possible at all). You will have 2 accounts.
For your other projects you continue using your own copy as usual. For their projects, you need to log in using the user info they'll provide.
