Full Evaluation (10 user)
The Vault Full Evaluation allows a team of up to 10-users to evaluate Vault using their own data and hardware for 30 days. Installation of both the Vault Client and Server are required. Installation usually takes less than 15 minutes.
Request an Evaluation Key.
To obtain an evaluation key, log in to the SourceGear Customer Service Portal and request a 30-day key. An automated email will immediately be issued with your 10-user Vault Pro evaluation key.
Need more than 10 users, or an extension longer than 30 days? Just ask our sales department to issue a customized evaluation key.

Getting started with Vault.
SourceGear’s technical support manager walks you through getting started with Vault in this brief video.
When you are ready to purchase, there is no need to reinstall. You can purchase a permanent license key from the SourceGear Customer Service Portal then replace the evaluation key with the permanent one. It’s that simple.
First, determine if you'd like to use the “classic client” or the “enhanced client.” We explain the differences here:
To enable IDE integration with Visual Studio:
Within Visual Studio select Tools – Options , expand Source Control and select Plug-in Selection.
A dropdown menu will exist under “Current source control Plug-in” providing you with the option to chose between the enhanced client or the classic client.
