Can I use my QV license on both my laptop and desktop?

Dear all,

I have some questions regarding the usage of my local client QV license. Can I use it on both my laptop and desktop without any problems? And can I use QV on multiple user accounts within my desktop?

Any relevant information would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Bob

Hi,

As far as I know you can use a named user call at two different devices simultaneously.

I do it all the time.

Hi

a licence is allocated to 1 user (you may understand user = computer)

according to the licence you are allowed to open 1 or many documents.

If you own a Named CAL you can use it on your computer and connect as well to the access point from any computer but you can't use the licence on 2 computers.

Correct. You can use a local client license (or server-based Named User CAL that has been leased to a QlikView Desktop instance) on 2 machines.

HI Gerrit,

i'm not telling you can't do it (because technically you can do it on several computers not connected simultaneously) BUT do you have official right to use the same licence on 2 computers?

If so, i'm learning something

best regards
