This technote provides information on how ProjectWise Licensing works, the ProjectWise Client license user settings, and how to license ProjectWise Explorer using a passport license.
In general, when you launch ProjectWise Explorer and login to the datasource the Integration Server logs a Client usage to SELECTserver on the Client's behalf. This is the default setup.
*Please note: The following information can also be found in the ProjectWise Administrator help.There is a user setting called "Client Licensing" in the properties \ settings for each ProjectWise account that determines how that user will record a license usage.This setting has two options:
This setting lets the administrator specify how license usage is activated and recorded for each user, once logged in to a datasource in ProjectWise Explorer or ProjectWise Administrator. The specified user may use local licensing for one datasource and server licensing for another. If not able to activate locally, the user will be prevented access to their datasources after 30 days from the time of ProjectWise Explorer or ProjectWise Administrator installation.
How to make changes to the Client Licensing user setting:
If the ProjectWise Client is required to record a license usage to a different SELECTserver then that of the Integration Server, you will need to obtain a ProjectWise Passport license and run the licensetool.exe or activationwizard.exe to activate the license.
