Sharing VW license and bulk licneses


Recommended Posts

Our company is expanding and I've been asked to look at shared network licenses, so we only need to buy license for 95% of staff on the assumption that there will always be someone out of the office / not using VW.

Has anyone done this successfully? is there a discount for buying bulk licenses? I know it can be done with the educational version.

we are in the UK so have to use the dongles

Even if you have the version that needs serial numbers entered, you can enter a pool of serial numbers in and the application will just the next one in the list that isn't in use already.

From experience I'd say give a single serial number to anyone who is likely to use the application full time, then pool serial numbers for more casual users.

I think you'll find that anyone using the program arround 50% or more of the time will get frustrated being in the pool.

The pricing structure to date has been reduced price on all licences after the first.

You'll have to check current policy.

We have 3 licences between 5 people. We cant seem to add more than one serial number to each computer to be able to use a "pool" of licences. When trying to enter a second one, a dialog box pops up saying "this installation of Vectorworks allows only one active serial number per user account. Do you wish to replace the existing serial number" 

 

Is there a different Vectorworks download we need to be using in order to use a pool of licences?
