Non-Select License.

I am told that Non-Select Licence is version and Machine specific. I have 2 questions.

1. Can I install the software on 2 or more  machines with the same version of software.

2. From Where  to download  the  same version of software on another machine after a period of time when old versions are superceded by new version.

  • If you have one license, you can run the program on one computer. You can install the program wherever you like, but it will only run on the computer that has the license. You may be able to find some third-party license management software that will let you "share" the license between computers, but it will still only be valid for one computer at a time.

    I don't know how those things work, and I know that Bentley doesn't offer anything beyond their own licensing management.

    A very long time ago, we had the little piece of hardware that was coded with the license - it had to be plugged into the computer in order for the software to run. We all had MicroStation loaded on our machines, but we could only run it if we had the dongle attached.

    If you have a SELECT support contract, someone at your organization will be authorized to download updated software from the Bentley Fulfillment center. If you do not have a support contract...I don't think you can just download upgrades. That would be a question for whomever manages the software at your organization, or they can contact their Bentley Account Representative for more information.
