About Autodesk Software Licensing
If you own Autodesk software, licensing is managed in one of three ways:
Standalone: for standalone installations, it is usual to install the software on the workstation and, at the time of first run of the software, to select a standalone installation and apply your license number. This is available via your Autodesk Account
Netowrk: for network installations, there is firstly an installation of the FlexLM licensing system required on the server, as well as addition of an Autodesk service and inclusion of a license file. Following successful installation on the server, a deployment is normally created on the server and then this is used for installatoin on the workstations. Each workstation then looks at the server for access to licenses.
Dektop Subscription (formerly Rental Plans). These are pay-as-you go with a choice of quarterly and annual access to a variety of Autodesk software products
These are standalone installations. License activation occurs as via your Autodesk Account.
Civil Survey Solutions software uses the Infralution License System to manage licensing of the software. Standalone, network and rental licensing uses the same system of licensing. In the case of standalone and rental, insertion of the license (activation) key is all that is required - when the sofware is first run the installation form will display. For network installations, the licensing system must first be installed on a server and the license activated. Following that, the software is installed on the client workstations and at the time of license activation a Floating License is selected and the machine is directed to the server for licensing.
