Use of STAAD.Pro is activated by the use of one or more licenses that are managed by a license server.
The current licensing system is known as CONNECT Licensing which has been introduced in STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V22. This system has been introduced to provide system administrators a mechanism to better manage their usage and reduce the chances of license over use.

Older versions of STAAD.Pro including all V8i and the earlier versions of STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V21, were managed with SELECT Server Licensing. Note that some older versions of STAAD.Pro can be converted to use CONNECT Licensing by installing a CONNECT Adapter.
