Purchase, Renewal, and Upgrade
Are all of the oneAPI Toolkits available for free?
Yes, all of the oneAPI Toolkits are available for free download and use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. The oneAPI Toolkits obtained for free are supported via community forums and are public. Only the most recent releases of the Toolkits will be made available.
What oneAPI Toolkits are available for Commercial Support?
The Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit is available in addition to the following combinations: Intel® oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit, Intel® oneAPI Base & IoT Toolkit and Intel® oneAPI Base & Rendering Toolkit are available with commercial support with various use and support configuration price points.
Can the HPC Toolkit, IoT Toolkit or Rendering Toolkit be purchased standalone?
No, these “add-on” toolkits are intended to be used with the Intel oneAPI Base Toolkit to form a complete suite of tools to meet the development needs to target Intel’s latest platforms.
Can I add another “Add-on” Toolkit to an existing oneAPI Toolkit commercial product I have already purchased so I don’t have to buy the “Base Toolkit” again?
Yes, please contact your local reseller and they can work with you on how to do so.
Renewal and Upgrade
What is the difference between Renewal and Upgrade?
A renewal is when the support period on a license is extended. The serial number for the product remains the same, but the expiration date within the license file is changed. A renewal extends the support period for your existing product.
A product upgrade is a rare event in which an entirely new serial number is granted, and the old serial number is deactivated. It can be a free upgrade or a paid upgrade for a different product. For example, you can upgrade from Intel Parallel Studio XE to Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit or from Intel System Studio to Intel oneAPI Base & IoT Toolkit.
Do I qualify for a free upgrade to oneAPI Toolkits?
If you have a product that is currently supported, such as Intel Parallel Studio XE or Intel System Studio, etc. you qualify for a free upgrade to the corresponding Intel oneAPI Toolkit. Once you upgrade your product, the remainder of your support period will be assigned to the new serial number.
Where can I find my free upgrade?
If you have a supported product you will receive a promotion email with the free upgrade option. You can also sign into your Intel Registration Center account and go to the ‘Manage License’ page of your supported product. You will see the option to upgrade your product.
Where can I purchase a new product or a renewal to extend my support?
Choose from the following options:
To purchase a new product or a extend support for your product, visit the Intel® Web Store.
If you purchased your license from a reseller, contact them to make your purchase.
For options on extending support, use the Support Renewal Option tool.
I purchased or renewed the wrong product or am otherwise having issues with the purchase or renewal itself. How can I fix this issue?
If you purchased or renewed your product through a reseller, contact your reseller directly.
If you cannot resolve the issue directly with your reseller or the Intel Web Store, visit our Get Help page for all support options.
Can I still purchase Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio?
While you cannot purchase a new Intel Parallel Studio or Intel System Studio products, you can purchase a renewal for your currently supported products. For exceptions contact your reseller.
Can I still renew my Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio?
For a limited period, you will still be able to renew your existing products, providing you have not transitioned to a oneAPI product prior to the renewal.
Will I still have access to my older product, once I transition to oneAPI?
You will still have access to Intel Parallel Studio XE downloads after transitioning to Intel oneAPI Base + HPC Toolkit. You will still have access to Intel System Studio downloads after transitioning to Intel oneAPI Base + IoT Toolkit.
For more information go to the Purchase, Renewal, and Upgrade FAQ page.
Why do I need to register my serial numbers?
You only need to register the serial numbers for your commercial products. Registering your serial number will identify your product as eligible for Priority Support. Free products don’t need registration and do not come with Priority Support.
Do I need to register all my commercial serial numbers?
You need to register every serial number for a commercial product to enable your Priority Support for that product. Make sure all your commercial serial numbers are registered prior to seeking support.

Named User License
Do I need a FLEXlm license to install Intel oneAPI Toolkits or components?
A FLEXlm license is no longer needed nor used for oneAPI Commercial or Free Products.
Will Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio still require a FLEXlm license file?
Older products, such as Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio will still require a license file for installation and activation of some of the components. Your current FLEXlm license should still work with those products. You can keep using the product with your current license.
Will my Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio still work after I transition to Intel oneAPI?
Once you transition to Intel oneAPI you will be issued a new serial number. FLEXlm licenses are perpetual and thus as long as you have the license you can use the last version for which the license was valid. If you want to install the product on another system you can use your new serial number for the installation or download a new license file for offline installation from the Intel Registration Center.
Floating and Concurrent License
What will happen to my supported Floating Licenses after I transition to Intel oneAPI?
Once you transition your supported Intel Parallel Studio XE or Intel System Studio to an Intel oneAPI Toolkit, your floating license will be converted to a Concurrent License. Your 2-seat Floating License will be converted to a 2-user Concurrent License and your 5-seat Floating License will be converted to a 5-user Concurrent License.
What does Concurrent License mean?
Concurrent license indicates how many developers can use the product at the same time. See our End User License Agreement for more details. A 2-user concurrent license will allow up to 2 developers and a 5-user concurrent license will allow up to 5 developers, respectively. With a 2-user concurrent license, you can register up to 10 users for support and with a 5-user concurrent license you can register up to 25 users for support. This is only applicable for oneAPI Commercial Products.
Will I still need to use FLEXlm License Manager with my floating Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio products after I transition to oneAPI?
There are two options available to you if you have a floating FLEXlm license:
You can still use Intel Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio floating licenses with FLEXlm License Manager. The license file on your system will still support that. For more information see Intel® Software License Manager FAQ.
However, if you prefer, you can download the new license file associated with your oneAPI product, from Intel Registration Center, and use it with Intel Parallel Studio XE or Intel System Studio without having to connect to a FLEXlm License Server.
Why do I need to associate developers with a Concurrent License?
Only people associated with a commercial supported product will be entitled to Priority Support in the Intel Online Service Center. To ensure your Concurrent License users are associated with the license, they must be registered in the Intel Registration Center and added to the serial number as developers.
For more information go to the Licensing FAQ page.
