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
IDA Home comes under a Named license scheme only and can be bought as an annual
subscription. IDA Home replaces IDA Starter, which discontinues at version 7.4. IDA Starter
users with an active support license can convert their license to one of the 5 IDA Home
licenses (x86/x64, ARM/ARM64, MIPS/MIPS64, PowerPC/PPC64, Motorola 68K/Coldfire) or to IDA
Pro. This conversion is free of charge; future support extensions will be at the cost of the
chosen edition. Corporate customer’s licenses will be converted automatically to IDA

- Each floating license allows one concurrent use of the software
- The user can install the software on his/her laptop and two desktop computers, provided that no other user uses the software on those computers.
- The software can be installed on as many computers as required (in the same company)
- Multiple copies can be run only on one computer at a time
- To the license server; it is possible to borrow a license for offline work

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 7 platforms:
x86 x64 ARM32 ARM64 PowerPC PowerPC64 MIPS
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.
