Innovyze Product Licensing IPL

The goal of this guide is to provide instructions for installing the Innovyze Floating Seat License Server. Additionally, this guide provides a walk through of activating, sharing, transferring, renewing, deactivating, and upgrading the floating seat license.

What is The Floating Seat License 

The Floating Seat License allows Innovyze software to be installed on more than one machine, via the Server/Client installation process. For more information, refer to What is The Floating Seat License.

Installing Innovyze Floating Seat License Server  

To maximize the use of the floating license, the license must be inserted into the Innovyze Floating Seat License Server.  This section illustrates how to install and activate the INNOVYZE FLOATING SEAT LICENSE SERVER. For more information, refer to Installing Innovyze Floating Seat License Server.

Activating Your New Floating License  

Activating the new license is a very simple process and can be done through the online licensing system. This section illustrates the license activation process. For more information, refer to Activating Your New Floating License.

Sharing the Floating Seat License  

Once the floating license has been activated, the client machines that have Innovyze software installed can “see” the same Domain Server and can check licenses in and out. It allows the organization a to maximize the use of Innovyze software based on project needs, regardless of physical location. For more information, refer to Sharing the Floating Seat License.

Transferring License from One Server to Another  

The Floating Seat License can be transferred from one server to another if the floating license is removed from the initial server. To use legally licensed software from Innovyze, a deactivation key must be generated from the initial server before transferring. For more information, refer to Transferring Floating License from One Server to Another.

Renewing the Floating License 

Renewal of the Annual Maintenance Agreement allows organization to keep costs low by providing upgrades to software. The renewal process is simple and done through our online licensing system. This section explains the benefit of renewing your license(s) and the license renewal process in detail. For more information, refer to Renewing the Floating License.

Deactivating the Floating License 

Some situations call for the deactivation of a license on a server no longer in use. Generating the deactivation key and submitting it to Innovyze will allow the license to be reactivated on another server with appropriate support. Without the appropriate deactivation process, the license cannot be transferred or reactivated. For more information, refer to Deactivating the Floating License.

Floating License Update Option and Process 

The Innovyze license upgrade process works different from other companies. It is required to go through the deactivation process if the license is to be upgraded and moved from one server to another. This is a simple process and can be done through the online licensing system. This section explains the license upgrade option and process in detail.
