Can I use SmartPLS without internet connection?
It depends on your type of your license.
If you are using the ++Student++ version or purchased a ++SmartPLS Professional single user license++, you can use the software when you are offline.
Internet access is only required during the ++activation++ when you use SmartPLS for the first time.
If you use a ++SmartPLS Professional network license++, you need to be connected to the internet or to computer network of your company/university.
