SVOffice 2009 does not require an Internet connection for normal operation. An Internet connection is only required for the following scenarios:
- SVOffice 2009 uses the Internet to check for software updates, and for updates to the standard public models. If a network connection is not available, the text "Unable to check for updates" will be displayed at the bottom of the SVOffice Manager screen.
- Software-based time trial licenses require an Internet connection for activation. Once activation is completed, a connection is no longer required. Please note that dongle-based licenses never require an Internet connection for use. Also, the STUDENT version of SVOffice 2009 does not require an Internet connection for use.
- SVOffice 2009 is capable of emailing model files to any email address, often used for support purposes.
