How many Floating Licenses do I need?

One of the challenges with a floating license is determining just how many seats you need.  With Intel® Software Development Products, knowing what constitutes checking out a license can help answer this question.  Every unique user of a product will check out a license during usage of that product.  The exact action that causes a check-out varies by product.

  • Installing an older version of Intel® Parallel Studio XE with a 2016 or later named-user license

    If you recently purchased an Intel® Parallel Studio XE, extended your support for an older product or received a free upgrade for your existing product, you are likely to have a 2016 license. The 2016 license gives you access to the new 2016 products and updates. However, you may still choose to install an older version that better suits your needs. If this is the case you will not be able to install the product using the Serial Number option in the installer. Before attempting to install you will need to manually generate a license file, place it on your system and install the product using the license file.

If you installed the product on more than one system, each system will have its unique license file. If you need to obtain the license file for a specific system after installation you need to do the following:
