Automatic license deactivation on MetaShape exit
« on: March 13, 2019, 03:04:27 PM »
Dear Agisoft support team,

I happen to (mainly) use MetaShpae in two different computers my laptop and my ATX workstation unfortunately I quite often forget to deactivate the licenses from the machine I'm leaving, is it possible to configure in some way MetaShape 1.5.1 to automatically check out the license every time the end user closes the GUI?

Many thanks

Best regards

Isaac

Hello Isaac,

Floating license is automatically returned to the server, when all application instances on the given computer are closed.

If you are speaking of node-locked license, then maybe you should create a batch script that will start Metashape and has a deactivation line. Or even create a custom menu item that will perform two actions consequently: deactivate the license using shell command and then quit the application.
