EVE Suite Software can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for your tests and demos. In this case the server software is provided full-featured, but not licensed and with a lifetime limitation, with the possibility to be installed on different hardware supports. If your trial expires, you can extend the trial period reinstalling the free server firmware on your hardware unit. On this way you will have time to continue carry out your tests and fully understand and master the product. To convert a Trial to a Paid License, you need to subscribe and activate it.

Please refer to license activation guide to learn how to extend your EVE Suite License lifetime.
