Is it possible to limit the number of Vista workstation instances that can be opened on a PC?
TAC Vista 5.1.X
On a site with a number of workstation and workstation remote it is possible that all licenses will be checked out by one user on one PC, if multiple instances are running, leaving no licenses available for other users in the network.
It is possible to use a license options file to reserve licenses for specific users. In this way it is possible to guarantee that a license will be available for each user. There is also an option to set the maximum number of licenses a user can use.
