Apparently my license can only be activated for the current Windows user only i.e. the administrator’s account. There seems to be no options to change the settings from “current user only” to “all users”. Is there any specific workaround for this?
Try explicitly running the License Management Tool as an administrator, select Options from the Tools menu, and click the Elevate to All Users button as shown below:
HI Jeremy, Good day !
With the admin account i have updated the site key and it placed the key in the below location
HKLM/Softwares/Wow64/Bentley/Livcensing/1.1 folder site key and the Select server name,
Key is on the (HKLM) local machine , It still says activation for current user
1) Do we still get the POP up to activate the licenses for all other users ?
2) Does it need to be activated for all the V8I products when they open for the first time ?
3) What is the difference between Normal current user activation and Elevate to all user option ?
The "Elevate to All Users" button only moves the server name, site activation key, and any proxy settings (i.e. the SELECTserver settings) to the All Users profile for propagation to any user profiles that do not have their own settings. Activation statuses are still stored in the individual user profiles. Consequently, each user activates products using either their own copy of the SELECTserver settings or the elevated settings otherwise. To force users to utilize the elevated settings to ensure proper activation, consider running the following batch file to clear any SELECTserver settings stored in the individual user profiles.
