Step 1: Will you use a Standalone or a Network license?
If a standalone license is purchased, the software can be installed on as many computers as desired, but will only run on whichever computer either has a green standalone USB key plugged into it, or has a cloud-based standalone eLicense activated on it. The standalone license can then be transferred from user to user by either passing around the green standalone USB key or by deactivating the cloud-based standalone eLicense on the current user’s computer before activating on the next user’s computer.
If a network license is purchased, the software license can be shared among multiple users much more easily. Users do not have to pass around a physical green standalone USB key or deactivate/activate the cloud-based standalone eLicense to share the license with others. Instead, the network license is located either on a red network USB key that is plugged into a centralized license server/machine that can see users’ computers through the network or accessed through the cloud-based network eLicense services.
Users can easily access the license simply by running the software and if the license is available, the software will launch. Once the user closes the software, the license is checked back into the network USB key or the cloud-based network eLicense.
