Can a commercial license be used on different machines?
Yes, it can be used on different machines within the same company or organization. However, the number of active users cannot exceed the number of licenses. Two or more users cannot use the same license at the same time. In other words, if you have 5 licenses, the active users cannot be more than 5. Each active user must have their own license.
Can multiple employees use the same commercial license?
Yes. Two users can share one license, as long as they do not use it simultaneously. Each active user must have their own license.
There are 12 developers in my company. How many licenses should I have?
It all depends on the active users of the software. Two or more users cannot use the one license at the same time. If all developers are working at the same time, then you should have 12 licenses. However, two users can share one license if they do not run the software at the same time. Each active user must have their own license.
Can I use a commercial license at home?
That depends on your company’s policy. Always confirm with your manager first.
