Difference between "INTELLIJ IDEA ULTIMATE edition" [Trial version] or [Licensed version]


What is the difference between "INTELLIJ IDEA ULTIMATE edition" [Trial version] or [Licensed version] . Are there any limitations in trial version or initially I can use trial and then migrate to licensed.

Trial version has the same features, the only limit is the time you can use it. Once you have a license, Register the trial version and continue to use it as a licensed version.

I just installed the following:


IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1.1
Build #IU-171.4073.35, built on April 6, 2017
Licensed to IntelliJ IDEA Evaluator
Expiration date: May 13, 2017
JRE: 1.8.0_112-release-736-b16 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o
Mac OS X 10.12.4


I have 3 projects that I need to open and have to run them in parallel on Tomcat (in different ports)

When I try to open another project File -> Open Recent -> I get the following warning, which is very annoying.

I was on IntelliJ 14 for a long time and I didn't have any issue.

Is it a limitation with trial not allowing me to multiple windows at the same time?
