Check-in Floating License

The Check-in Floating License command is used with floating licenses to immediately check-in the license so that another person can use the software. Floating licenses are checked out in 10 minute increments. If no commands are run for 10 minutes, the license is automatically released and another person can use the software.

If another person attempts to use the software before the license is released, a warning message will be displayed for the new user, stating that no license is available. The new user can choose to ignore the warning and immediately start using the software. However, a license overuse exception will be recorded in the license database. The license database is reviewed each year when you renew the software. If there are too many overuse exceptions, you will need to purchase another license.

Using this command, the original user can check-in the floating license when they are done with it. The new user can then use the software immediately without causing a license overuse exception to be recorded.

To check-in the floating license, go to

DM Electrical->Utilities->Check-in Floating License

The floating license will be checked in and will be available for another person to use.
