License types

 

Scan2CAD is available with the following license types:

 

Single PC License

Scan2CAD is licensed for use on one PC only.

 

USB Stick License

When you install Scan2CAD, a Scan2CAD License File is copied onto your own USB stick.

Once the License File is on your USB stick, you can install and use Scan2CAD on any PC that the USB stick is inserted into.

 

Fixed Network License

Each license can be used on one network workstation only. You may prefer this option to the Floating Network License option below if users need guaranteed access to a copy of Scan2CAD at any time.

You need to install Scan2CAD onto each workstation it will be used on. During installation, you will specify a public shared folder where all users who are going to use Scan2CAD have read and write access. A Scan2CAD License File is copied into this folder.

 

To see how many licenses you have, how many are available, and which workstations are using licenses:
a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is activated on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click on the + icon or little arrow icon next to the Scan2CADv8 Module (see image above).

The workstations with Scan2CAD licenses are displayed:

 

To add an additional Fixed Network License:

If you buy an additional Fixed Network License, we will send you an Activation Key. You can add the additional license to your existing licenses as follows:

a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is activated on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click the Activation Key button in the License Viewer.
c) Enter the Activation Key we have sent into the dialog.
d) Click OK.

 

To reassign a Fixed Network License to another workstation:

If you have a Fixed Network License, the License Viewer allows you to deactivate the license on a workstation so that a user on another workstation can use the software instead. To do this:

a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is activated on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click on the + icon or little arrow icon next to the Scan2CADv8 Module (see image above).

The workstations with Scan2CAD licenses are displayed.

c) Click on the workstation that you want to deactivate.
d) Click the Deactivate button.

 The Scan2CAD license on the selected workstation is deactivated and becomes available for use on another workstation.

 

To reactivate a deactivated Fixed Network License:
a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is activated on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click on the + icon or little arrow icon next to the Scan2CADv8 Module.

The workstations with Scan2CAD licenses are displayed.

c) Click on the deactivated workstation that you want to activate.
d) The Deactivate button becomes an Activate button. Click on it to reactivate the workstation.
You can only reactivate a workstation if there is an available license.

 

Floating / Concurrent Network License

Each license can be used on any workstation on the network, so long as it is not already in use on another workstation.

You need to install Scan2CAD onto each workstation it will be used on. During installation, you will specify a public shared folder where all users who are going to use Scan2CAD have read and write access. A Scan2CAD License File is copied into this folder.

 

To see how many licenses you have, how many are available, and which workstations are using licenses:
a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is being used on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click on the + or little arrow icon next to the Scan2CADv8 Module (see image above).

To add an additional Floating License:

If you buy an additional Floating License, we will send you an Activation Key. You can add the additional license to your existing licenses as follows:

a) On any workstation that Scan2CAD is being used on, display the License Viewer by going to Help Menu > Display License Viewer.

If a Scan2CAD Activation dialog appears at program startup, you can also access the License Viewer from the ? Icon at the bottom left of the dialog.

b) Click the Activation Key button in the License Viewer.
c) Enter the Activation Key we have sent into the dialog.
d) Click OK.

 

To reassign a Floating Network License to another workstation:

Unlike a Fixed Network License, there is no need to manually deactivate a Floating License if you want to use it on another workstation. The license will automatically deactivate itself when a workstation exits Scan2CAD and will become available for use by another workstation.
