Remote User licensing in FineReader 15


Remote User license type is assigned for a specific user. It can be used by them on any working station which has access to ABBYY FineReader 15 License Server.

The program can be installed on an unlimited number of computers, but it can be accessed by the number of users corresponding to the number of licenses available.

This type of licenses is recommended for infrastructures where one user can establish connection to different working stations.


Remote User license can be used with local or network installation:

  • Local installation is used if several users have access to one working station.
  • Network installation is used in infrastructures with terminal servers and virtualization.


After the program is installed on working stations, system administrator activates licenses in ABBYY FineReader 15 License Manager and creates groups of users that have access to this licenses. After that the administrator can reserve Remote User licenses for certain users.


ABBYY FineReader 15 connects to ABBYY FineReader 15 License Server if the connection of the working station and the server was established during the installation process.

User identification is realised through Windows credentials (login should be typed in in form of DOMAIN\UserName).

When ABBYY FineReader 15 is launched, the working station receives a reserved Remote User license or the first license from a reserved pool on the licensing server.

If the user assigned for one license needs to be changed to a different one, current reservation can be cancelled in ABBYY FineReader 15 License Manager.

Detailed information can be found in FineReader License Manager guide after installation.
