Chris,

nice job. One question though:
What happens, if the user cuts off the internet connection after FlexSim has been started and a license has been activated? Obviously FlexSim will fail to return the license. With the next start of FlexSim, does it check if a license is already activated before trying one from the list?

Thanks for clarification

Ralf

Default License Sharing Module Update

Previously it did not check to make sure that a license was not already activated. I have made the change and the download now has the updated module.

If a users internet connection is terminated before closing FlexSim, then the license will stay on the machine. If they then start FlexSim with an internet connection, then it will not try to activate another license. So when they then close FlexSim with a connection it will return the original license.
