Beam Me Back to the Network Please!

By Anna Liza Montenegro | IT, Subscription

We all know 2012 brought a lot of new features from Autodesk development, and I’m especially glad that the “feature” to convert a standalone license to network license is back. Clients no longer need to uninstall software in order to make it run from the license server. Tweak the registry [check the pic for the path] – a value of 1 is network, 2 is standalone.

*If you’re wondering why people ask for this ability, just think of the number of architects & engineers who take a company laptop but forget to check out a license. Without any connection back to the network, the only option to get them up and running is to jump them into the standalone 30 day trial bandwagon. They’ll have 30 days to figure out how to fix it and hopefully IT can setup a VPN connection by then.
