Concurrent Licensing Now Available in India
InstallShield and InstallAnywhere
Offer available till 31 March 2021
InstallShield® and InstallAnywhere® is currently ONLY available as node-locked licenses which tie the product license to a specific user and machine. While this licensing type fits many users, some customers require concurrent licenses that can be shared between multiple users within the team.
NOW, for a limited time in India, LOGON and Revenera are offering Concurrent licensing as an alternative to node-locked licensing. Concurrent licensing allows sharing of InstallShield or InstallAnywhere licenses between multiple users. This can provide companies with greater flexibility and cost efficiency.

Does concurrent licensing replace the traditional node-locked licensing?
No. Flexera introduced the concurrent licensing option to benefit customers who want to purchase and use InstallShield and InstallAnywhere more flexibly and cost-effectively. The concurrent licensing option is also ideal for large companies with many infrequent InstallShield and InstallAnywhere users who want a flexible licensing model that enforces compliance without risk of audit later.
When should I choose concurrent licensing over node-locked licensing?
The traditional, node-locked licensing is a commonly purchased license type and may best serve the needs of many InstallShield and InstallAnywhere customers. Generally speaking, companies with users creating installations on an infrequent basis could benefit from moving to concurrent licenses. These developers can be in different locations (or even countries/continents), provided their machines are connected to the same network (and able to communicate with a central license server).
How are concurrent licenses packaged and what’s included?
InstallShield and InstallAnywhere concurrent licenses are purchased along with required Annual Maintenance Plans at the Gold or Silver level. Two individuals must be specified as primary and alternate contacts for technical support at time of purchase; all subsequent support requests from anyone using a concurrent license have to be channeled through either the primary or alternate contacts.
How difficult is it to set up/deploy concurrent licenses?
Setting up concurrent licenses involves two main steps:
1) Downloading, installing and configuring the required software on a licensing server, and
2) Downloading and installing the software onto the user machines.
Subsequently, every time a user starts InstallShield or InstallAnywhere on his/her machine, it will ping the server to verify that the required license is available and if so, grant the user access to the software. Such concurrent license configurations are common and should not present your IT staff with any problems.
How long will the concurrent licenses be valid?
Just like the node-locked licenses, concurrent licenses are perpetual and do not expire.
Which editions of InstallShield and InstallAnywhere are available as concurrent licenses?
Concurrent licenses are only available for InstallShield Premier and Professional Editions (not for Express) and InstallAnywhere Premier Edition (not for Professional).
I already own node-locked licenses of InstallShield or InstallAnywhere, can I switch them to concurrent licenses?
Yes. Please contact LOGON Software India for specific upgrade pricing. Please note that concurrent licensing provides the most benefits to companies with a large number of node-locked licenses.
