Tasa CD-ROM and DVD-ROM FAQ

  • Do I need a Single-User or Multi-User version? A Lab pack?
  • Single User: You receive one copy of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM intended for use on one computer only.

    Multi-User (Site License): You receive one copy of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM intended for use on as many computers as you have in one building only. The contents of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM may be copied onto each computer hard drive or may be installed on a file server for computers on a network. Note that Mac "Localtalk" networking is too slow to consider usable for serving Tasa CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs; at least ethernet speed (10 MBPS) is recommended.

    Lab Pack of 5: You receive 5 copies of the CD-ROM for use on 5 computers. Lab packs are not available for An Introduction to Structural Methods DVD-ROMs.


  • How do I tell if I have a Single-User or Multi-User license?
  • All programs are shipped with an Official License Agreement inside the packaging. You will see either Multi-User or Single-User at the top of the agreement.


  • How do I purchase an upgrade for one of my programs?
  • To order a version upgrade, click the Buy online button on the program webpage or call 1-800-293-2725. Upgrades require a serial number. Enter your current serial number in the Special instructions box on the checkout webpage.


  • How do I tell what version I have?
  • Look for a version number in one of these locations:
      • the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM disc label,
      • the program's Title, Credits, or Main Menu screen,
      • or the Read me.
    If you can't find a version number, you probably have version 1.0.
