How to choose the right license

The commercial license of NK2Edit is defined according to the number of Microsoft Outlook workstations that you plan to use with NK2Edit.
The number of Outlook workstations in your NK2Edit license might be lower than the actual number of Outlook workstations that you have on your company. For example: If you have 50 Outlook workstations, but you plan to use NK2Edit only for rare events when you need to fix a corrupted NK2 file, then you can purchase only a license for 25 workstations, assuming that you'll never need to use NK2Edit to open the files of more than 25 Outlook workstations.
However, if you plan, for example, to run an automatic script that modifies the NK2 files of all the 50 workstations in your company, or you want to watch all 50 workstations in the NK2 Control Center, then you must purchase a license for 50 workstations.

In the following table, you can find the list of commercial licenses that you can purchase and their price. If you need a commercial license for more than 1000 Outlook workstations, please send a message to nk2edit@nirsoft.net or alternatively, you can purchase a license for a period of one year (Annual license).
