Setting up a client for named user licensing
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.
- Install an Embarcadero client product that is enabled for the ELC named licensing, if one is not already installed.
- Follow the instructions provided in the
readme.txtfile 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.
- 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.
