  1. Hi, Feedback on login pop up window on startup to VW and licensing mechanism: As a relatively small firm we ned to manage our licenses carefully. The login screen/pop-up is often our only window on to what the license status is. Since we don't sit within the same office (all working from home these days) it can be a pain to chase round to see who is in or out of VW... Make it clear whether you are borrowing or taking an active license from the server (3 buttons BORROW, LOGIN, QUIT) When borrowing only allow users to select up to the maximum number of days allocated (poll the server first to determine the length Show how many licenses are available (before clicking to continue) Hide all the other information in a separate pop-up window (with an options button to access) Being able to notify other users that a license is needed if we have run out - that would be great! Receive notification when a license has been released and is now available Open to abuse perhaps, but being able to forcefully reclaim a borrowed license when a user is offline/unavailable (if someone is off sick or laptop is unable to connect to network) If upgrade/update process remains the same being able to update the software without using up a license at the time would be good. I.e run the update without a license, ("an update is available...." is shown at login screen) Just some thoughts... Cheers, Ross
