No. of users and Workstations

Solution No. of users

Comprehensive operates a concurrent-user licence model. For a single-user licence, no. of users will be "01" and you may have only one instance of the software running at a time. On a multi-user network of PCs, no. of users may be greater than "01" and will determine the number of users that are able to use the software and access common data at the same time.

No. of Workstations and Workstation ID

This identifies the number of PCs on which the software may be installed under the licence. For most single-user licences, there will be only one workstation (i.e. the single-user PC) and Workstation ID will be "01" so the software may be installed on only one PC. On a multi-user network of PCs, Workstation ID may be greater than "01" and will determine the number of PCs (which includes the server) on which the software may be installed under and licence. Each PC workstation on a network must be licensed individually with workstation ID "01", "02" and so on.

Read the other articles in this knowledgebase section to determine the number of concurrent users and workstations that you need for your purposes.

Multiple workstations on a network

Typically this will apply to a multi-user network installation. On a multi-user network of PCs, you must first activate the server with workstaion ID "01". Then activate the first workstation with ID "02". Then activate the second workstation with ID "03" and so on. It doesn't matter which order you activate the workstations, but the server must be activated first with workstation ID "01". Every workstation must be activated in order to operate under the common licence, to enjoy all the available features and to disable the 90-day trial period expiry.
