How do I get the BSCW software?

The latest version of the software is always available for download from our download pages.

Usage of the BSCW server software is limited to a testing and evaluation period of 90 days and restricted to 200 users. After that period you have to acquire a licence to continue usage.  The distribution of BSCW licences is handled by OrbiTeam Software GmbH & Co. KG, a spin-off company of FIT Fraunhofer Institute.

Schools and universities may apply for royalty free licences for educational use only. In this case, BSCW must not be used commercially or in the context of funded projects. Any other use of the software requires the payment of a licence fee.
