Managing Licenses

ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager is a special application provided with ABBYY FineReader 14 and intended for managing ABBYY FineReader licenses. The application is installed on the License Administration Station when ABBYY FineReader 14 is deployed in a local area network (see Installing the License Server and the License Manager for details).

Configure your licenses with ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager:

  1. Add your licenses to ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager.
    An ABBYY FineReader 14 license (or group of licenses) has a unique serial number which identifies it. To activate a license and add it to ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager, you must activate its serial number.
  2. Create license pools and add the necessary licenses to the pools.
    A pool of licenses is a set of licenses of equal standing that have the same type. License pools make working with licenses easier. For example, instead of reserving each license separately, you can add it into a pool and then reserve the pool for certain workstations.
  3. Reserve the pools and licenses for the appropriate workstations.
    Before you install ABBYY FineReader 14 on the workstations, you must distribute the licenses among the workstations, i.e. reserve them for the appropriate workstations by means of ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager. Once a license is reserved for a workstation, only that workstation will be able to use the license.

Important! Reserve licenses and pools before you start installing ABBYY FineReader 14 on the workstations. To bind a workstation to a server or unbind it from a server after ABBYY FineReader has been installed on it, you will need to remove the program from the workstation. To move a Per-Seat license from one workstation to another after ABBYY FineReader has been installed, you will need to deactivate the license. The number of allowed deactivations is limited.

For more information about license types and about working with ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager, see the ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager help file.
