Several licenses are assigned to the same workstation


The workstation receives several licenses for the FineReader PDF program. 


If there are two or more pools of licenses in the License Manager, and none of these pools are reserved for the workstation, the workstation will receive a license from each pool.


Please reserve one of the license pools for the workstation or move all the licenses to a single pool.

In order to move all the licenses to a single pool, please follow the steps below:

  1. Launch FineReader PDF License Manager.
  2. In the Pools column click on Create.
  3. Enter the name of a new pool (e.g. FR16) and select Concurrent type below.
  4. Click OK.
  5. In the Pools column select All Pools.
  6. Right-click on the first license and select Move to Pool.
  7. Select the created pool.
  8. Repeat p. 6-7 for other Concurrent licenses.
    It is possible to remove all empty pools by right-clicking on them and selecting Delete item.
