# U.S. Government organizations may request a source code and/or end-user (executable) license. Collaborators may request only an end-user (executable) license; it is up to the code developer’s disgression to make the source code available to a Collaborator.

& The corresponding option is not available.

Due to limitations of the Windows operating system, PC executables may not run for large problems (many grid blocks, especially with many equations). For such problems (roughly greater than 50K to 100K grid blocks), it is recommended to buy the source code and compile it yourself on a Linux machine or in a Linux environment within a PC.
