Stand-alone Software License

This is machine based STAND-ALONE software license, mainly used for license lease, training license or trial license.

The SysCAD License can be located in any folder on the computer. The default folder location for the license files is \SysCADXXX\License. The license information is stored in this folder.

The license can be issued in two ways:

  1. Within SysCAD - When a license is issued from within SysCAD, the license location can be selected by the user.
  2. Using SysCAD Licensing Utility (syscad.exe) - When a license is issued using the License utility, the license location is the folder in which "syscad.exe" is located. Then when running SysCAD, ensure that the license location is set to point at the folder where the license utility is located.
