3D Max activation
We have around 30 licenses for 3D Studio Max education edition and need to reimage all the media machines.
I've done a few and once run on the fresh image the software 'Checks license information' and then just launches, but I'm worried it will lock out after all the licenses have been 'allocated' even if they were 'allocated' to the past image!
Is this how it operates or are the licenses linked to hardware in some way?
Got in this morning after imaging the room over the weekend and the first machine I try:
0.1.0010 Activation Error.
What does that mean?! It says the serial number is invalid if I then request a code but it isn't invalid at all :confused:
I think they use FlexLM now for their licensing so you can pretty much install it anywhere and the 'License Server' should take care of the allocation side. You can only use it concurrently on as many machines as you have licenses for.
At least that's what I'm told by our supplier. We bought some licenses for Motion Builder, Maya and 3D Studio Max and I've not been able to install it yet so cannot comment further.
Well I found out Autodesk are doing website maintenance until 5am tomorrow, so I'm guessing it may be doing some work on the activation servers too. Or I hope anyway. :D
