Any custom software that is large and complex and used on only one computer.
However if you are talking about off the shelf software I've just ordered 5 copied of Wise Package Studio Suite at just over £5,000 a copy for work.

Just When You Thought Commercial Software Could Get Anymore Expensive.....Think AGAIN!

I`ve seen commercial software go up to +700k but they`re mostly game engine SDKs

0. The Windows Vista Source (NAW I`M KIDDING) OVER A BILLION $$

Here`s The Real List
Unreal Engine
3 -- $750,000 (For 1 Platform) + $100k (For Every Other Platform)

Renderware SDK-- $200,000

Source Engine ??? Estimated over $200k+

CryENGINE ??? Estimated Over $200k+

I know there`s more but I`ll update you when I find more....

AND MAYA 7.5 IS only $8000 but with TAX Probably around there.........

Softimage Face robot is $94,995, its a high end facial animation software.
But you can get softimage XSI foundation for $495 thats really cheap for a leading 3D animation package it might have a few features taken out but you still get Mental ray rendering.
But this thread is a bit pointless I dont have $495 yet for XSI let alone $94,995

It's hard to define end user. Any scientific software fall in the very expensive also (Matlab, CFD software etc). Also CAD design (ProE, Catia ...) softwares are quite expensive. I have no numbers because i never had to budget any of them myself.

The most expensive I heard was a license for VxWorks which ran around 200 000$.

Im thinking the software used for genome sequencing but Im not sure there is a lot of end users.
Possibly at C.E.R.N.
They say that atom smashing is pretty computer intensive.

Can I ask why you ask that question?

I like this thread.

Really tickles my sense of curiosity.

I wonder if there are any torrents out there?... I wanna see what hundreds of thousands of dollars gives you in one piece of software.

I would expect it make a cup of coffee or at least type for me.

Joking about the torrent, I doubt whether my crappy old dual core could handle any of this stuff.
