Need to choose Network License

We are getting several network licenses of Product Design Suite Standard 2014 and several of Product Design Suite Premium 2014.

Is there a way to setup the workstations so the user can select one or the other license from the network server?  This choice will be made when launching Inventor or Acad etc.

Install the Premium versions on all computers.  The software will automatically pull the standard licenses first until they either run out or a premium feature is used.  Beyond that, you can control some of the licensing on who gets what by creating an adskflex.opt options file on the license manager. 


For eveything you could possibly want to know about the adskflex.opt Options file for FlexLM, please see my KB article here:

Good Luck!
