SimVenture Classic software is supplied via a download link and is provided using the email address you supply.
If you don’t have a PayPal account you will have the option to use a credit/debit card to complete your purchase.

How long does it take before you receive your software?

The ordering process is not automatic. Our team handles every order manually between the hours of 9am and 6pm (GMT).

Since all orders are handled manually you will experience a delay between purchasing and receiving download and license activation instructions – especially if you order out of UK office hours (Monday – Friday / 9am – 6pm GMT).

During office hours you will typically receive your software within an hour of placing your order. But if you order outside office hours the delay can may be considerably longer. But be assured, we honour every paid order and you will receive your software.

Once payment has been received in full by Venture Simulations Ltd, licensing details allowing you to activate the software will be sent to you via the email you have provided with your order ì details.

If you use more than one email address for ordering and payment it is possible software details will not be seen by you immediately. Likewise, please check your spam folder once you have placed your order as occasionally our email with your software details can be filtered.

Purchase terms and conditions

SimVenture Classic is a PC Windows-based programme. Details for using the software on a Mac are available here.

Any SimVenture Classic license purchased for personal use must be installed on a personal computer, assigned to a named individual and then used for personal use only. SimVenture Classic personal licenses cannot be used or shared within any other environment such as education and the corporate training sector without the advance written permission being granted by Venture Simulations Ltd. Any person buying one or more licenses who is then subsequently found to have contravened our license agreement and/or terms and conditions risks losing access to all purchased software and that person as well as the organisation that he/she may represent may be subject to further legal proceedings. You can view this website for all details of the company’s software license terms and conditions. If you have any further queries, please contact the team in advance of using the software.


SimVenture Classic is a PC Windows application. If you use a Mac you will require emulation software or a Bootcamp partition (both of these options require a Microsoft Windows license). If  you are in any doubt as to whether the software will work on your machine, we advise that you first download and test a free demo copy of SimVenture Classic ahead of any purchase.

Your annual license will last for 365 days once you activate the software on your computer. The license date does not start from the day you make the purchase.

As per our terms and conditions, personal licenses are for personal use only. In exceptional circumstances we do occasionally allow for personal licenses to be used in a teaching environment but permission must be obtained and agreed with VSL ahead of any purchase.

All software is provided in download format but on request, the business simulation can be supplied on CD (subject to P&P surcharge). When you buy an annual license the purchase includes 12 months of maintenance and technical support. This means that if anything goes wrong with your software in this period of use, our technical support team will provide help free-of-charge.

When you buy a SimVenture Classic personal license you will be able to install the software on your own computer. The software includes videos showing you how to use SimVenture Classic as well as comprehensive written instructions that will help you to use the business simulation. 

Training support and teaching resources are not supplied with a personal license. However, if you require additional support the SimVenture team can direct you to your in-country training supplier or notify you of on-line and/or face-to-face courses.

The activation code supplied to you following purchase licenses the software to one machine only.

SimVenture Classic is also available in Mexican Spanish, Chinese, Italian and Romanian. For further details about the software’s availability in different languages as well as prices, please contact the team. Please note, international personal license prices may vary.
