What licensing features are available for each licensing model? How do these features compare if I am using NI Volume License Manager (VLM) or FlexNet Publisher (formerly FLEXlm)?
The following chart shows what features are available depending on which license model you are using. Please note the superscripts and their respective notes below the image.
Note: Each time a client successfully checks out a license from the server, temporary license files are created on the client computer. If the client cannot connect to the server in the future, the temporary license file will be transformed to expire in 14 days. The file will be renewed the next time the client successfully checks out a license from the server. If NI VLM is installed on the client computer, temporary license files are not going to be created.
