A floating license is managed by the LightBurn license management server. This allows the license to be allocated when a LightBurn session is started and then released when the LightBurn session is closed.Typically this is used by customers who have many users needing to use LightBurn at the one time.

Windows:

  1. Update to the latest version of LightBurn and make sure it’s installed and licensed as normal

  2. Open up a command prompt by:Click Start menu, then type ‘CMD’ and windows will auto-complete, right click it, run as Administrator.
  3. Type the following into the command prompt:
    CD "c:program filesLightBurn"
  4. Next, type the following into the command prompt:
    LightBurn -l <license key code here>

NOTE: That last command is LightBurn -(lower case L) (license key)

Once done, any user who uses that machine will be able to run LightBurn without entering license.

Mac:

  1. Start a ‘Terminal’.
  2. Type the following:
    cd /Applications/LightBurn.app/Contents/MacOS
    sudo ./LightBurn -l (license key)
    

NOTE: That last command is sudo ./LightBurn -(lower case L) (license key)

Once done, any user who uses that machine will be able to run LB without entering license.


Network Restrictions:

LightBurn will need to communicate with the external license server to verify licenses. If you are experiencing difficulties with a license not being verified, your network may be restricting this.
Please ensure the following is setup on your network:
