Named user licensing is licensing by specific user name, identified by login name and optional last name. Only a specified number of users, with the specified names, can use the specified product at the same time. A named user can log onto any computer at any location to use the product they are licensed for. User names are controlled by the ELC administrator in the <ELC>\conf\userlist.txt file. See Configuring the user list file for named user licenses for instructions on editing this file.

  1. Install an Embarcadero client product that is enabled for the ELC named licensing, if one is not already installed.
  2. Follow the instructions provided in the readme.txt file downloaded with the configuration files. (See Step 8 - Downloading the configuration files in the Installation section of this document for more information.) These instructions detail where to copy the configuration files locally. An example of a configuration file name is named_XXX.slip, where XXX is the certificate number.
  3. Start the Embarcadero client product. The Embarcadero client product is now sending named user license requests to the ELC. Licensing information is available from Help | License Manager.
