This complimentary license for ExtendSim Student is being provided to students at universities who may no longer have access to the school's Floating license of ExtendSim due to shelter-in-place regulations and need to continue using ExtendSim for their course projects.
This Individual license of ExtendSim Student may be installed on your personal device as long as it has the Windows operating system. This free Student version of ExtendSim will function through June 30, 2021. Automatic activation (over the internet and not blocked by firewalls, etc) is required.
ExtendSim Student is designed for students building models for classwork. It allows students to:
Build and save small (75 blocks or less) models for classwork.
Interactively run those models and other small models, change settings, view animation, and save simulation results.
Utilize advanced ExtendSim technology such as Optimization, the Scenario Manager, built-in databases, ability to build custom blocks, etc.
Use scripting to build or change small models and to move blocks on a worksheet.
Print model worksheets, block dialogs, and so forth.
Interactively run larger models in Player RunTime mode, change settings, view animation and see results (but you won't be able to save or print results of larger models).

Limitations of the Student version of ExtendSim
The models you build are limited to a maximum of 75 blocks.
ExtendSim Student opens all models with an "ExtendSim Student" watermark on the model worksheet. Models created in ExtendSim Student will maintain that watermark when opened in other ExtendSim licenses.
Scripting cannot be used to run models remotely.
This version is licensed only for your personal use on a single computer.
The Student version may not be used for commercial purposes, including consulting or research that is subsidized by a private or government enterprise.
There is no upgrade path and technical support is limited to installation questions.
To activate ExtendSim Student, your device MUST have internet access. If a Student version cannot be activated automatically where the device is located, take the device to a location where automatic activation can take place. There is not an option for a manual activation of a Student version.
Models built and saved in a Trial version of ExtendSim cannot be opened in the Student version. ExtendSim Student can only open models built in an activated Model Developer Edition license or from another Student version.
A Trial version of ExtendSim CANNOT be converted into a Student version. And the Activation Key you receive when purchasing a Student version will NOT activate a Trial version.
Since simulation is processor-intensive, we recommend that your computer have a powerful central processing unit (CPU). The processor should be as fast as possible and it must be 64-bit.
ExtendSim 10 is a Windows application. For detailed specifications, please see System Requirements on the ExtendSim web site.
