    Hi,

    in the dev-kitchen it says the license count is the part after '201', so it starts at the fourth digit.

    In several posts here , it says the prefix for a multilicense bofore the actual lic-count is '20'.

    So which is correct, '20' or '201' ?

    thanks,
    Daniel

    You don't have to care about the first three digits. Just request the serial information with SERIAL_MULTILICENSE and you get a multi-license number, otherwise the serial number string is empty and you continue to request the normal Cinema single-license number with SERIAL_CINEMA4D. All that matters for multi-licences are the fourth, fifth and sixth digit for the number of licenses.

    Hello Matthias,

    thanks for the code example.

    I'm wondering now what happens if a customer got a multi license for say 10 copies of c4d.

    the serial i get with the above method would probably be like this:

    201010xxxxx

    This means there is 10 clients that share this serial, which they get from the license server.

    Thus i would have to make my plugin serials multi-licenses as well, which means i have to code into my serials how many licenses were bought.

    Because if i dont, customers can use my single license for all their clients that share a c4d multi-license.

    Is that correct or did i get sth wrong ?

    thanks,
    Daniel

    Basically it would work like this, you request the first 11 digits of the customers multi-license. This will give you the number of Cinema4D seats. Currently there is no way to license a plugin only to a limited number of seats of the maximum number of Cinema4D seats. In your plugin check if a multi-license is avaible, if so apply your serial number rule containing the number of licenses. How you handle this in the end is up to you.

    cheers,
    Matthias
