Online licensing
« on: May 20, 2019, 07:02:25 PM »
Hi. This question is obviously for RC as well as FP.

We have a Windows 10 based server that has the various Itoosoft licences running on it. Our workstations therefore get their licenses from this server.

Windows 10 being Windows 10, it often reboots to install updates and there is no way to prevent this (only delay). This causes issues with licensing and is just silly. VRay offers online lincensing. Does Itoosoft? We want to get our systems running 24/7 and not be tied to specific machines for licensing.

Cheers,
Kind Regards,
Rich

I don't know, although it may take some time.

We're actually making changes in our licensing system, and it's one of our priorities.
But before we can offer cloud licenses, we must rewrite and modernize several dependent modules.

Guys, I would love this to be a strong priority.

Chaos have switched over to online - so the only reason I have to leave a big fat machine running all day when I work remotely, is just to license Itoo plugins.

I am sure the same can be said for many other, and thus, think of all the electricity you will be saving!

Thanks
