With which versions of PGI Windows products is IMSL compatible?

The Visual Numerics Fortran Numerical Library for Windows version 6 is compatible with PGI Workstation for Windows 7.1 or newer and PGI Visual Fortran 7.1 or newer.

Version 7 is compatible with PGI Workstation 11.9 or newer and PGI Visual Fortran 12.4 or newer.

What's a deployment (or runtime) license? Why do I need it?

Deployment licenses grant rights to use, in this case, IMSL capabilities that have been built into an application. Deployment licenses are often referred to as "runtime" licenses. The VNI Software License Agreement uses the term deployment licenses. VNI (Visual Numberics Inc), the original publisher of IMSL, was acquired by Rogue Wave Software in 2009.

All PGI products include deployment license rights without separate charges or separate licensing. IMSL is Rogue Wave product. PGI is reselling this popular library for the convenience of Windows-based Fortran developers. This means customers are licensing IMSL under Rogue Wave terms and conditions. It is Rogue Wave's business practice to license developer and deployment rights separately, and charge for both.

I was using v6.0 IMSL and now upgrading to v7.0 IMSL. What do I need to know?

Rogue Wave has changed the licensing terms with Version 7.0 of the FNL. Specifically, deployment beyond a single computer now requires the purchase of an additional deployment license. Please refer to the VNI Software License Agreement for more information.

I'm a developer of an app that I alone will use on a single-user system. What do I buy?

Buy one single-user developer license which also includes one IMSL deployment license.

I'm a developer of an app for me and other users at my company. What do I buy?

Buy the number of licenses needed for the total population of machines at your company or organization that will be running the application you will create.

Can I buy just a runtime license if I don't need a developer license?

Normally, Developer and Deployment licenses are not sold separately. Please email PGI sales for a quote on a volume deployment license purchases, or for deployment on machines with more than 16 cores.
