XMetaL Licensing Options
Single-user Licensing: When you purchase single-user licensing, you must register each copy of XMetaL that you install with an XMetaL Licensing File. The total number of computers with the software installed cannot exceed the number of single-user licenses purchased. Read below for more information about single-user licensing.
Concurrent (or Floating) Licensing: When you purchase a concurrent (or floating) license, you can install XMetaL on any number of computers. The number of users running XMetaL at any time cannot exceed the number of concurrent licenses agreed to at the time of purchase. Concurrent licensing gives your organization the flexibility to manage your licenses on-site with the XMetaL Licensing Server (XMLS) .

With permanent on-site employees and contractors writing your technical documents and marketing materials, you need to ensure that they have ready access to their authoring tool.
Single-user licensing allows you to distribute licenses to a fixed number of authors and reviewers who need access to XMetaL regularly. A single-user license is considered “in use” once the XMetaL software has been installed and registered on your end user’s machine. To free up a license, the end user must uninstall and unregister the XMetaL software.
Concurrent (or Floating) Licensing
With a global network of contractors and on-site employees writing your technical documents and reviewers checking them, you often find that the software is not being used by everyone at the same time. Concurrent (or floating) licensing pools your XMetaL licenses together so that licenses are available simultaneously by any number of users up to the maximum number of licenses agreed upon at the time of purchase.
Each time an end user stops using XMetaL, the license seat becomes free for another end user to use the software for authoring and reviewing.
Concurrent licensing gives your organization the flexibility to manage software licenses by requiring you to install the XMLS on-site. Once the license server has been installed, end users who install XMetaL on their computer will register with the on-site XMLS server.
