Loading ROBOTC onto Student-Used Laptops (that leave the school building):
- If the school owns the laptop, the school may load the Building License onto the student laptop. This would be just as if it was an extension of a school lab that students are allowed to take home to use during the school year.
- If the student/parent owns the laptop, the school may NOT use the Building License on this computer. The school should instead purchase a classroom license (30 seat license) to load onto the student laptops and manage the licenses themselves (via the Deactivate option).

Do I get both ROBOTC for Mindstorms, ROBOTC for CORTEX & PIC, ROBOTC for Arduino if I do this?
- This is for each "version" of ROBOTC. The prices above are for one platform. If you want all platforms, you'll have to double the prices.
What does the maintenance cover? Do we have to have maintenance to download bug fixes and updates?
- Maintenance coves new features (like color sensor support coming in a few months), and smaller bug fixes that aren't critical.
- It also includes 4 support "incidences" per year which are typically installation issues, computer issues "my drivers aren't working" or code level issues like "this code doesn't work".
Does the building license cover installation support so that we know we can get help just for deployment?
- Installation is simple. You install a special "Building License" version of ROBOTC, drop a license file into the ROBOTC folder and it works until the expiration date embedded in the license file.
Can we buy maintenance later if needed?
