What is the difference between a stand-alone license and a network license?

Stand-alone licensed products are registered and activated to an individual workstation. While the software can be installed on multiple systems in your facility, the license only allows one system to be operational. The Portable License Utility can be used if a license needs to be transferred to another system. If you need to run more systems, you need to purchase more stand-alone licensed products, or consider converting to network licenses.

Network licensed products rely upon a Network License Manager to keep track of software licenses. The software can be installed and run on multiple systems, up to the maximum number of licenses you’ve purchased. The Network License Manager “checks out” licenses until they are all in use. No further systems can run the program until a license is “checked in”. If you need to run more systems, you can purchase additional licenses for the Network License Manager to maintain.
