AQTime License Types

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

AQTime licenses control the number of AQTime instances that can be launched concurrently and the time period during which the license is valid.

About AQTime License Types

AQTime Pro uses two license types: Node-Locked and Floating User. Both license types are Perpetual, that is, they have no expiration date.

Node-Locked License

The Node-Locked license is bound to one computer. You can run only one AQTime Pro instance at a time on this computer.

Node-Locked licenses cannot be used on virtual machines. If you need to use AQTime on them, use Floating User licenses. See Using AQTime on Virtual Machines for more information about this.

Floating User License

The Floating User license lets you run several AQTime Pro copies on multiple computers in the local network. The number of copies that can work concurrently is determined by the license key.

When using the Floating User license, you enter the license key on one computer only (License Manager PC, see How Licensing Subsystem Works). There is no need to activate the AQTime Pro licenses on other workstations.

Checking License Types

You can check the type of the license you have on the AQTime 8 Pro page of the My SmartBear section of our web site.
