Go Up to Installing ER/Studio Business Architect

ER/Studio Business Architect requires a license in order to run.

ER/Studio Business Architect supports three types of licenses:

  • Trial licenses: A license for a 14-day, full-featured trial version of the product. The trial license must be registered before you can use the product. For more information, see Registering a Trial or Workstation License at Application Startup.
  • Workstation licenses: A license or set of licenses that is tied to a particular workstation. If licensee has purchased a single seat license, licensee may install the product on one computer for use by one end user. For more information, see Registering a Workstation License after Application Startup.
  • Networked licenses: Networked licenses are administered and distributed by a central License Server (IDERA License Center, Appwave or Acresso FLEXnet Publisher). There are two types of networked licenses:
    • Concurrent licensing: Users on different machines take turns using licenses from a shared pool.
    • Networked Named User licensing: Licenses are pre-assigned to specific users that are set up on the license server's user list. Those users are guaranteed to have licenses available any time.

For more information, see Registering a Networked License.
