This topic covers aspects of installing and activating LoadComplete in large organizations.
Which License Type to Choose
If you are going to buy several LoadComplete licenses that will work concurrently, we suggest that you buy a Floating User license for the desired number of users rather than the same number of Node-Locked licenses. Say, if you want to buy 10 copies of LoadComplete, we would recommend they you purchase the Floating User license for 10 users rather than 10 Node-Locked licenses, because in this case it would be easier for you to activate the licenses and also lets you use them on virtual machines.
If you have a Floating User license, you will need to install the License Manager and activate the license on one computer only. No activation actions are needed on other computers (except for providing network access to the License Manager. See Specifying License Manager for Connection and Specifying Users Who May Connect to License Manager).
If you buy 10 Node-Locked licenses, you will have to activate each of these licenses on each computer.
When using Floating User licenses, pay attention to how licenses are upgraded. If you have a LoadCompletelicense, you can purchase more product instances as new licenses or as an upgrade of the existing license. We recommend that you use the second option if possible. That will simplify license management: in this case, you can activate a new license key on the same License Manager PC. If you purchase new product instances as a new license, you will have to activate the license on a new computer (that is, you will have to find one more computer to make it a License Manager) because one License Manager can work with only one LoadComplete license.
