Yes, it support.

 

It have two methods.

Method 1: use network license. below is the steps:

1, install License manager in computer A, and set computer A as license Server.

2, install Publisher on computer B, C and D, use computer A as license server

3, if Computer A only have 1 license, you can start publisher on computer B or C or D, but they can't be used at same time. That means if Publisher B occupy license, C and D can't use it unless close Publisher B.

 

 

Method 2: standalone linese, below is the steps:

1, install publisher on computer A and B

2, publisher A is actived, it have license, but Publisher B is not

3, please see attached image, use license transfer utility to export the license 

4, Publisher B can import this license. 

 

Hope this helps

Thank-you for your replies.

 

I currently use a network licence on our company server, but I want to use Publisher when I go home.  I do not have access to the company server at home.

 

Can I change the network licence to a standalone?

You can borrow a license. Below are the steps:

1, start publisher, click about button in title bar

2, clich license information

3, click borrow, you can borrow the license for 1 day, or 1 week, and return the license when you finish using it.

But I presume I will need access to my company server at home in order to borrow the licence in the first place?
