Hi,

I'm a new user of installshield.
I have a license of Installshield Professionnal 2016 and want to know if it is possible with this license to work with a floating license server on my enterprise network.
If it's possible can someone send me a documentation of the installation process of the license server ?

PS : i'm french, my English is not perfect but I will make some effort ^^

Hi,
I think it is not possible,

take a look at: concurrent-licensing (https://www.flexerasoftware.com/producer/resources/collateral/ds-concurrent-licensing.html)

"•The minimum purchase quantity of concurrent InstallShield and InstallAnywhere licenses is 3 user concurrent licenses."

Thanks for the very quick answer !!
I have another last question for the moment ^^
what is the best practice for installshield installation and his use ?
Install the software locally on my laptop or install it on a virtual machine ? (I have in memory fonctionnality of capture system change to build an MSI, is this fonctionnality available for remote systems or only locally ?)

With the professional licence you can use the "InstallShield Standalone Build" in the virtual machine for "on change" compiling and use the professional licence on your PC for changing the setup script.
