Pinned topic How RPE consumes licenses

‏2010-02-12T08:08:20Z |
This information applies to RPE versions up to 1.1.1.

RPE Document Studio consumes 1 license as soon as it starts
RPE Launcher does not consume a license when started.

Local Document Generation
  • if performed from the standalone Launcher: will consume 1 license when the doc gen starts and will release it as soon as doc gen ends
  • if performed from Document Studio: will reuse the license already checked out by Doc Studio

Remote Document Generation
  • performed from the standalone Launcher: will consume 1 license when the doc gen starts and will release it as soon as doc gen ends
  • performed from Document Studio: will consume 1 license when the doc gen starts and will release it as soon as doc gen ends

So at any given time you can have 0, 1 or 2 license checked out

0 licenses:
RPE Launcher in idle mode

1 licenses:
Launcher doing local/remote document generation
Doc Studio in idle mode or doing local document generation

2 licenses:
Doc Studio doing remote document generation

Do note that Remote Document Generation does not support User Based licenses.
