How to Add Users to a Floating License

By Noga Collins, Published: 05/27/2016, Last Updated: 10/12/2017

A floating license owner can share a floating serial number (SN) with other users from the same email domain. However, it cannot be a public domain such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc. By registering the SN each person will be added as a user of that license.

Existing User:

  1. If you already have an IRC account, go to Intel Registration Center (IRC) and log in with your login id and password.
  2. On the right-hand side enter the floating SN you received from the license owner.

  3. Once you have registered the SN you will get a confirmation message followed by a confirmation email with the details of the account.

New User:

  1. Go to Intel Registration Center (IRC).
  2. Enter your email and the SN you received from the license owner.
    Be advised, you have to share the same private domain as the license owner.

  3. You will be prompted to create an IRC account
  4. Once your account is created you will get a confirmation message followed by a confirmation email with the details of the account.

A registered user will be able to download the product from IRC. A registered user will be eligible to get Priority Support at our Online Service Center web site, only if the product has active paid support.

If you try to register a SN that belongs to a different domain you will get an error message.
Be advised, this procedure is for a Floating license only. Attempting to register an already registered named-user SN will transfer the license from one user to another.
