A license key to run GeoModeller or Intrepid is called a "cookie".
The cookie is located at C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\Intrepid Geophysics\.intrepidlock
Cookies can be version locked, date and time locked and also have keys for optional features. If you are running Windows or Linux you may be using a dongle.
Computers equipped with a network card may have dongle-less licenses issued to them.

You may opt-in a subscription plan at a 50% discount, please contact email@example.com for more information.

How are the modules organized in the new system?
The new system subdivides GeoModeller and Intrepid software modules into 3 tiers of increasing functionality: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Each tier includes the features of the preceding ones, please visit [website page] or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I would like to purchase a license for a single module, is that possible in the new system?
The combination of modules in my current license does not correspond to any of the three tiers of functionality; which tier will be applied?
Licenses in the new system are not always perfectly aligned with their older counterparts. These license alignment issues may cause feature and/or price overload compared to the previous system. If you suspect that will be the case for your licenses, contact email@example.com for a review.
I have purchased a license from an authorized reseller; how am I affected?
You are still bound to the terms of the agreement with the reseller. Contact your reseller for more information.
My case is not covered by this FAQ, what to do?
Please double check first and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with an accurate description of your situation.
In the light of ongoing market evolution, Intrepid Geophysics has taken the decision to upgrade its licensing protocols for the GeoModeller and Intrepid software products.
The upgrade concerns two separate aspects of the licensing:
- Pricing: the current split maintenance/license purchase model is changed to a simpler yearly subscription model.
- Packaging: the modular system is updated to a simplified tiered system of increasing levels of functionality.
We believe these changes will ensure greater consistency, clarity, quality and flexibility across interactions with our customer as follows:
- Consistency: ensure future development of the innovative methods and practical features that we have been known for over the last 20 years.
- Clarity: propose a simpler, practical layout of our product offerings.
- Quality: raise the standards of our support services and enhance the maintenance of our reference material and documentation.
- Flexibility: allow customers to navigate, share and transfer licenses freely within their organization.
Usage, support, maintenance and delivery of the GeoModeller and Intrepid software products are now bundled into yearly subscription plans offered by Intrepid Geophysics beginning 1st September 2018.
The GeoModeller and Intrepid software products are each divided into Basic, Intermediate and Advanced tiers of functionality. Each tier includes the features of the preceding tiers.
The individual purchase of maintenance for both the GeoModeller and Intrepid software products, including support services and updates, is discontinued from 1st January 2019.
Existing license holders will be given the opportunity to opt-in at a 50% discount rate on their yearly subscription until 31st September 2019 or up to 6 months following the end of their last maintenance contract.
After this date license holders will be treated as new clients and be issued quotes with regular rates.
