FAQs – Licensing

What are the different licensing options?

We offer floating client licenses. A floating license does not require an activation code for each client license. An activation code is required for server only. It is controlled by the number of concurrent users.

What are license requirements? Is installation limited to a few computers?

We provide floating client licenses. You can install the application on an unlimited number of computers; however, the number of users that can access concurrently (at the same time) is controlled by the number of floating licenses purchased.For example, if you purchase five floating licenses, you can install client apps on any number of computers – but, only five users may access the server simultaneously.

Are there any license keys required?

License keys are not required for each user. However, a license key is required for server installation.
