If you do not pay subscription fee every year, then you can not get:

SOLIDWORKS 2017 - Term Licensing Offering Choices While Autodesk Holds You Hostage
I have seen this information and I have an intention to subscribe SW standard 12-Month Term Licence. But the information given is not enough as like in following website. That is why I want to know from the people those who use this.
What is meant by 12-Month Term License? What does this mean? Does anyone know about it?
If you are seriously considering this, then I would suggest that you actually go and speak to a reseller face to face if possible so that you can ask all of the questions you need and start to build a relationship should you decide to go ahead. Getting ones interpretation on a definition or reading between the lines can lead to ambiguity and you could end up with something that doesn't suit you.
Afterall, it's your money.................
This is mere investigation. I have an intention to buy once my student licence ends up.
The information I have seen is that a term license means you are licensed for only that period of time.
If you got a 12 month term license on January 25, 2017 you will be able to use the software through January 24, 2018.
On January 25, 2018 you will no longer have any access to the software.
You are renting access to it for that period.
As Dave Bear said, you need to contact your reseller for the exact details and what you do get and what you don't get during the time you are licensed.
The Term license is good for someone who needs it for a few months and then may not use it again for a year or more and then needs it again. It is NOT good for someone who wants a license for a long period of time.
What is meant by Perpetual License?
What is the different between SOLIDWORKS Standard and 12-Month Term License?
A perpetual license (SW standard/pro/premium in this case) will allow the customer to use the licensed software indefinitely for lifetime whereas a subscription based license (term based license) will allow customer to use the software only for the said period (12 months in this case)
I wish to confirm this offer. I have an intention to use the software indefinitely for lifetime. So that if I pay $5,290 (Perpetual License fee) one time I can use the software forever and no need to pay any other fee (for example subscription fee) every year.
Thanks for the explanation.
The purchase price you have shown for the standard version includes 1 year of subscription service.
After that, if you do not pay the subscription and later decide you want to upgrade or get a subscription you will have to either pay for Full Backdating (pay for all the time you did not have the subscription) or pay the full purchase price for a new seat - whichever is less. For a standard seat, after you are off subscription for about 3.2 years the backdating fee would equal the new seat purchase price - so that would be what it would cost to get back on subscription (plus the next years subscription cost)
Just out of curiosity - can you get term licensing on an older version - say a customer wants to purchase a 2018 term license to comply with their customers version even though 2019 is out?
Hi Cami, sorry for a delayed response. I hope you must have received the answer somehow but based on my understanding you would get term licensing for newer version only.
Someone please correct me or tell me that my understanding is not correct and one can obtain earlier version as well.
