When Internet activating a Flex License, the following activation types will be offered:
The activation types behave as follows:
This option writes the activation data to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section of the registry, so it will result in an installation that will remain activated until it is Internet deactivated by the user, or until another user forcibly deactivates this computer.
This option is useful in situations where the number of users is equal to the number of available seats, such that there is no need to share seats among multiple computers. It is also useful in situations where a laptop will be taken to a remote location where Internet access is uncertain.
This option automatically activates the program when it is launched (if a seat is available), and it automatically deactivates when the user exits the program.
This option is useful in situations where the number of users is greater than the number of available seats, such that there is need to share seats among multiple computers.
Note: To change to a different activation type, such as to change from "Automatic" to "Indefinite", simply Internet Deactivate temporarily. Then Internet Activate once again and you will be offered the "Select Activation Type" dialog where you can choose the desired activation type.
