User has external clients and they don't want these external clients using their licensing.
Admin will go into ProjectWise Administrator and select the user | properties | setting |Administrative | Client Licensing and select the bottom choice " Activate and record usage through client's configured SELECT server. See Figure 1 below:
Selecting this setting will ensure that user licensing is NOT used.
The external users will not need to do anything else if they have other Bentley applications installed on their local machine that use XM/V8i licensing. ProjectWise will use the exiting licensing configuration and send the request to the external user's SELECT Server.All XM/V8i applications read/write licensing information in the same place on the user's local machine. It will be like they are activating a new product but won't need to run the "activation wizard" because that information already exists for the other Bentley XM/V8i apps.
If the user does not have any other Bentley Applications installed, they will have to run the activation wizard found in the …ProjectWise\bin folder and enter their SELECTserver configuration.
