Latest stable release:

Release notes available at Version History

Without a valid license, you may still run Deriscope for free under certain usage constraints that are somewhat relaxed during the initial 7 days since first installation.

When you run Deriscope without license, the various formulas will work only during the initial two minutes after Deriscope loading in each Excel session.
Exceptionally during the first 7 days since the time of first installation, the error-free Deriscope access is extended to 15 minutes per Excel session that does not include the time spent in reading the various integrated tutorials, tips and warnings.

All Windows Excel versions from Excel 2000 to Excel 2016 are supported.

All usage restrictions are lifted by purchasing one of the following licenses:

Standard License

j Go to Checkout

$19.50 per license

1 User, 1 PC, 1 year upgrades and support
Gives you lifetime access to your installed Deriscope version plus one year upgrades and support.

The lifetime access applies only to versions that have been released within 12 months from the date you acquired the license.
You may download, install and use any version that has been released within these 12 months.
It also entitles you during the same period to customer support through here.
All Deriscope functionality described on this site becomes accessible, with the sole exception of the VaR (Value at Risk) calculation on portfolios that contain more than 5 assets.
This license is meant to be activated once on only one computer system and can be shared afterwards by all users who login on that computer system. Please note that two different operating systems installed on the same computer count as separate computer systems. The 1 User in the license name refers only to the fact that no more than one users can access the license simultaneously. License transfer from one computer system to another computer system is also generally possible.
Internet access is not required for activating the license nor is needed for the daily deriscope usage, except if and when live data are requested through the Deriscope interface.

Enhanced Standard License

j Go to Checkout

$22.50 per license

1 User, 2 PC, 1 year upgrades and support
Adds to the Standard License the right to associate it with two different computer systems.

This license is particularly useful if you need to install Deriscope on two devices (typically a PC and a laptop or at work and home). This license is necessary if you want to work with both the 32 and 64 bit editions of Excel, since these two editions are necessarily installed on different computer systems.
