Your situation is on the boundary between what is obviously not permissible and 
what
is permissible under our license to distribute McIDAS-X.  I will be contacting
SSEC today to see if they approve of our giving you the software or not.  I will
let you know their decision as soon as I get it.

Which data set(s)/data server(s) have you tried to get data from?  Perhaps we
can help you to get IDV functioning properly.

Aside comment:

- for satellite data, the IDV contacts the same McIDAS-X ADDE server(s) as
  McIDAS.  If your IDV is failing to get satellite data for some as yet
  unknown reason, it might well be the case that McIDAS-X would have the
  same problem(s).  One of the main reasons I say this is that the satellite
  access code in the IDV is inspired by/based on the code in McIDAS-X

Cheers,

Tom
