Sharing Inventor for two people

312 Views, 12 Replies
12-03-2012 02:48 AM

I have this situation:

 

I have one local copy of Autodesk Inventor and one copy of Inventor Professional. I work together with my colleague and I want to be able to use both Inventor and Inventor Pro in turns (meaning - when I use Inventor my colleague uses Inventor Pro and vice versa).

 

 

Is it possible or is it a violation of Autodesk's copyright?

Hi!,

You have 2 seats (licenses) of Autodesk Inventor? Correct?

Or one of them is old and the other is an upgrade.

 

Sorry if I did not realize.

Hello Maria,

 

no it's not an old and uprade versions, it is two standalone licenses: one of them is Inventor and the second is Inventor Professional (which has more features than usual Inventor).

In fact I have Product design suite Premium and Product design suite Ultimate (Premium includes Inventor and Ultimate includes Inventor Pro).

Hi,

What you needed was a server licenses to launch the product that you need. Not a standalone license.

 

Stand-Alone Licenses

Stand-alone licenses are ideal for individuals or small offices requiring only a few individuals to access and use Autodesk products.  They do not require network connectivity to run and often cost less than network licenses for the same product.

A stand-alone license supports one or more Autodesk products for an individual user and computer.  For most Autodesk products, a copy can be installed on a second computer for “non-concurrent usage”, meaning the two copies cannot run at the same time. This allows for use of your Autodesk product on your work computer as well as your personal computer at home for example.

 

Network Licenses

A network license supports the use of Autodesk products up to a maximum number of users or “seats”, who are connected to a server network. The products can be installed on as many computers as desired; however, at any one time, can only run on the maximum number of computers for which licenses have been purchased.  Because you can install the products on more systems than the number of licenses purchased, you get true floating licenses across your entire organization.

Ok, it says about standalone:

 

" For most Autodesk products, a copy can be installed on a second computer for “non-concurrent usage”, meaning the two copies cannot run at the same time."

 

isn't it what I need?

Because basically that's what I was thinking about - only one copy of each product will be working at a time.

Yes, you partly rigth.

 

Called Home License, is an advantage to be a customer with Autodesk Subscription. Is the case?

(This allows for use of your Autodesk product on your work computer as well as your personal computer at home for example.)

Not exactly.

 

These are the two PCs in the office and instead of physically exchanging computers (like get up from the chair and sit down to the next table) I want to close my Inventor and launch preinstalled Inventor Pro, while my colleague closes down his Inventor Pro and launches Inventor.

 

I didn't exactly understand your line about the Subscription, but yes, I have the annual subscription.

:smileyvery-happy: hehe (like get up from the chair and sit down to the next table) it is good to exercise.

 

Yes, i undestand your need exactly. But not with stand-alone licenses. Is not possible to do this, only with floating licenses.


The question of Autodesk subscription is that a customer with annual subscription has the advantage of enabling a second concurrent license.

 

But you should always check with your Autodesk Reseller.
