Type of licenses available for IDA
Named licenses are linked to a specific end user and may be used on the user's laptop, and two desktop computers. They are a logical choice for private users but are also available to corporations and universities if and when only one end user uses the software.
Computer licenses are linked to a specific computer and may be used by different end-users on that computer provided only one user is active at any time. This license type is suitable for corporations because they are not tied to physical persons and allow for easy license reassignment.
Floating (or Network) licenses can be installed on unlimited number of computers (in one organization) but allow only a limited number of simultaneously running copies.How it works
Team licenses can be installed on an unlimited number of computers in one organization. A team of engineers can work online or offline and merge their work once they reach milestones, big or small. The vault server, which comes with team licenses, keeps track of all changes.How it works
IDA Home comes under a Named license scheme only and can be bought as an annual subscription.
We offer free educational licenses to universities and other academic institutions that publicly enroll students on a regular basis. Military institutions do not qualify for educational licenses.
The educational license supports x86, x64, ARM and ARM64 processors. It comes with x86/x64 cloud decompilers and a native local debugger for Windows or Linux. Python and IDC scripts are supported. No size limitation for input files.

IDA is available in two different editions
Both editions are available for 64-bit Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
IDA does not run on Windows XP anymore and 32-bit systems in general, but remote debugging on WinXP is still possible.
Support for the WinDbg debugger backend is available only in the Windows version.Main differences between Home and Pro
The Decompiler software is available for 9 platforms:
x86 x64 ARM32 ARM64 PowerPC PowerPC64 MIPS MIPS64 ARC
Currently the decompiler supports compiler generated code and converts native processor code into a readable C-like pseudocode text.
If you want to see the decompiler at work, try IDA Freeware or IDA Demo. They come with an x64 decompiler.
Decompilers require IDA Pro. Check out the decompiler limitations before ordering.
