FAQ: Licenses
I want to sell my Hobbyist System can I give the Licenses to another Hobbyist?
NO! Before giving/selling your Hobbyist System to someone else you must delete all your OpenVMS Hobbyist PAKS, they are not transferable.
The person who receives the system can have everything except the OpenVMS Hobbyist PAKS.
The new owner/Hobbyist must go through the process and obtain their own license PAKS for the system.

What systems can be licensed with the OpenVMS Hobbyist Program?
Any VAX, Alpha, or Itanium systems that can run OpenVMS are included in the Hobbyist License Grant for personal use.

Also, emulated systems such as Charon-VAX and SIMH are acceptable.

I want to develop commercial software using my OpenVMS Hobbyist system, can I do that?
No, the OpenVMS Hobbyist program is designed as an educational tool with non-commercial Terms and Conditions as part of its' license.
HP does sponsor a developer and solution partner program (DSPP) that offers special development licenses, deep Hardware discounts, joint marketing and many more resources to help bring your newly developed OpenVMS Application to market. You can join this program at

OpenVMS Developers and Solutions Partners

Look for the OpenVMS link in the Technology section.

Why do the licenses expire in 1 year, and what happens after that?
This is a requirement of the Terms and Conditions of the OpenVMS Hobbyist License. All licenses provided under the OpenVMS Hobbyist Program expire within a year. However, when the licenses get close to expiring, simply come back and register for new PAKS for another year.

Can I use OpenVMS Hobbyist Licenses for School or Campus use?
No, the OpenVMS EDU License Program addresses OpenVMS and Layered Product Licenses for Schools and Colleges. They have different
Terms and Conditions that allows schools to use OpenVMS in research, administration, and in classrooms. If your local schools aren't using OpenVMS why
don't you introduce them to the best server available! And the OpenVMS EDU Program is also free!

How do I find out the CPU Serial Number for my system?
The CPU Serial Number can be found on the Digital sticker on the back of the CPU box.

If you are using an emulator, just use NONE for the serial number.

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
