I have, in the past, had an integrator software lease agreement with GE, although they don't refer to it as a "Toolkit".

They call it a "Solution Provider License". You get access to all of their software. Talk to your local distributor. The request has to start with them.

I was ISP with GE last year. It was about $2,500 for the year and it gave me 2 licenses to all their software plus 1 free training class at the local distributor. That was a pretty good deal if you ask me.

Unfortunately we ended up not using the software at all during the year so my boss wouldn't re-up the contract and with that my PME License has expired so it wont run.

So if you have a lot of GE stuff I would look into being a ISP.
There is never enough money to do it right but there is always enough money to do it again.

As an OEM.....My "GE GlobalCare /Solution Provider" contract is $2150 a year for support and full access to all GE software.
And 10 licenses.....

The licenses are cloud based (or can be carried on USB thumb drive)....

I install GE Machine Edition and LogMeIn on all the equipment I work on or build. I maintain a full LogMeIn account.
If customer has issues....I log into their equipment with LogMeIn, transfer 1 of my licenses from the cloud to the PC and fix issue.
Then I move a backup of the logic to my account, return the ME license to the cloud, and log out.
For some "special" customers I may just leave 1 of my licenses on their equipment (I have 10 total) expires every year any way.

Net is where I be and Nathan is me.
