Floating license support

Postby Ajax » Sun Dec 10, 2017 10:08 pm

Does Enigma currently support floating licenses? If not, are there plans to support it in the future and if so, around when?

Thanks.

Hi, if you mean the ability to move the license to another computer - yes, that's possible to do (optionally).
So the customer could deactivate the license from one pc and activate it on another.

Great, I wasn't aware this was possible. Could you point me to the documentation on how to do this?

What I would like to do is for a user who has say 2 computers and 1 license, to easily switch between using the software on either computer, but to not be able to run it on both computers at the same time.

I would warn that this belongs to only Enigma Protector - Online Solutions, the version that supports online activation. Standard version does not have this ability.

Ok, if you have a project configured with online activation, to deactivate a license from application you just need to call a function EP_ActivationDeactivate. If the function succeded then server part accepted deactivation and user can move the license to another computer. The system won't allow the customer to install a license on another computer without deactivation of previous.

Number of allowed activated computers can be also managed from a web part.

Once the license becomes deactivated, you can check it by selecting necessary customer in the Customers page at web part. There will be a list of the licenses ever activated by customers and active licenses will be ticked with checkbox. You can manually deactivate a license from a web part, but this is not recommended.

This information is actual for the new version of Enigma Protector 6.00
