Licencing system.
« on: December 15, 2022, 03:49:09 PM »
Hello.
I would really love if I could use Metashape (standard) on my PC, and laptop on single a licence.
(not in the same time, but while travel etc)
Is that possible to make disabling / enabling licensing a bit easier?
Thank you!! :)

Hello gadas,

What kind of problems you are facing when using common procedure of the license transfer: on the PC go to Help Menu -> Activate Product dialog -> Deactivate button, then on a laptop go to Help Menu -> Activate Product dialog and input your license key?

Hello! :)
Thanks for response.
To be honest it's kinda tedious to deactivate, look for mail, copy, paste.
I know I sound lazy (I think I'm a bit), but I think that part could be somehow automatic.
For example in Fusion360 - when you open app on another device (while app is open on 1st device), software is seeing that, and is blocking usability until you close app on 1st device.
Thank you!

Hello gadas,

You can use activation/deactivation commands from the OS terminal:
Code: [Select]
metashape.exe --activate 11111-22222-33333-44444
metashape.exe --deactivate

Floating licenses for Metashape Standard are not currently supported.
