Configuration

With two license levels, how can I control which is used?

Extended question: We have two SAP2000 network license levels, including Plus and Advanced. The Advanced license is used by default, though we would like to use Plus by default, then have users select Advanced when appropriate. How can we implement this configuration?

Answer: This can be done as follows:

  • Perform a standalone installation of SAP2000 XX.
  • Make a copy of the installation folder and rename it SAP2000 XX PLUS.
  • Create a Level.txt file in the original folder. The contents of this file should read ADVANCED.

Please refer to the Expedite software launch article, following the "Network License - Option 2" instructions.

Problem

How can I prevent other network users from retrieving the license when in use?

Extended Question: Occasionally, when I run the staged-construction or bridge-modeler module, another user on the network license server will retrieve the same license and takeover use of the software. This causes the software to suddenly close. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?Answer: Software does not hold licensing for staged construction and the bridge modeler during analysis, allowing other users to access the license during this time. However, users may check out a license, as described  My network connection to my server is sometimes poor and I may lose my license during use, how can I prevent that?

If connection to the server cannot be improved, checking out the network license is an option. Please refer to the instructions described in the License check out article.
