The License Manager is essential for licensing DriveWorks Live.
The DriveWorks Live tab, in the License Manager, gives you an overview of all DriveWorks Live product codes that have been activated on the machine it is running on.
Licenses for previous versions of DriveWorks Live, that have been activated on the same machine, can also be viewed.
It also shows you information about active sessions in DriveWorks Live, with the option to forcefully end a session.
Centralized licenses are the number of allowable concurrent sessions served from the license manager.
Used to allow an overrun on top of the available Centralized licenses.
Once the DriveWorks Live License has been activated, in the License Manager, DriveWorks Live can connect to the License Server to be licensed.
When DriveWorks Live is first launched, or the License Server cannot be reached, you will be prompted to connect to the License Server.
To connect to a shared license server enter the name of the machine the DriveWorks License Manager has been installed on.
However we do not recommend having the License Manager on a machine exposed to the entire internet.
However it can be installed in one location to manage DriveWorks Live Licenses and another location to manage Network License for DriveWorks Administrator and DriveWorks User.
It should also be installed alongside each DriveWorks Pro module that uses Fixed Licenses so these Licenses can be returned if necessary.
Please see the section Multi-Application Deployment in the topic How To: Deploy DriveWorks Pro for typical deployment scenarios.
