SoftGrid Client: Do I need to license all the deployed applications

SoftGrid Client: Do I need to license all the deployed applications

SoftGrid does not change the licensing of any application; however, deploying an application through SoftGrid using the streaming protocol, only places the applications’ Icons on the Desktop.

Until the user double-clicks the Icon and uses the application, it is not installed and therefore does not require a license.

Using this in conjunction with SoftGrid Server licensing system and reports, you can restrict, monitor, or report on the number of licenses in use, enabling you to control and effectively purchase application licenses.

Applications pre-cached on a computer require a license.

Although SoftGrid makes the process of uninstalling an application very simple and quick, you should check the licensing of an application to ensure re-use on another machine; it is often the case that uninstalling an application does not release the license for a number of days before it can be used on another computer.
