|Copy Protection in Helix 7.0|
Historically, Helix products have used copy protection to ensure that only the licensed number of copies are being run. Helix’s licensing agreement allows you to install Helix products on as many machines as you wish, but you can only run as many copies concurrently (simultaneously) as your license permits.
Helix products are licensed by “concurrent access.” Concurrent access (or CA) is defined as the number of users that can use the product at one time.
For Helix Server, CA means the number of Helix Clients that are permitted to access that server at the same time, regardless of the physical location of the Client devices.
For Helix RADE and Helix Engine, CA means the number of instances of a Helix application registered using the same serial number, running at the same time, regardless of the physical location of the devices used.
Exceeding the CA license of a Helix application results in a dialog box that informs the user of the issue and provides an option to quit.
