Cascading sequence for Autodesk 2010 products

Here you find all about how the licenses of the product features cascade for network licenses (FLEXlm / FLEXnet).

Knowledge Base document: Cascading sequence for 2010 products

Unfortunately when you check the license status with LMTOOLS.EXE or LMUTIL.EXE you do not see what application the client really is using because of how FLEXnet reports cascading usage. This is also of course reflecting the result in JTB FlexReport. But if enough customers would find it useful to really see what application is using the license I will consider supporting it anyway. Let me know if you’re interested in this.

Here are some of them and several product names I’ve not seen before like “Autodesk Design Academy 2010”:

For the 2010 products, the PLIST increment is no longer include in the license file but is now stored in a new external file named ProductInformation.pit. License files will still include PLIST increments for legacy products, however 2010 products will reference the ProductInformation.pit file for the required PLIST information. – read more on Without A Net
