New script available to support borrowed concurrent licensing
Esri UK have written a python script that will decrease the time limit on the license manager for concurrent licensing. It will automatically decrease the license time per day, so at the beginning of the year, a borrowed concurrent license will last for 365 days, but as the year goes on this limit will decrease automatically. If you would like more information about how to access to this script please contact Esri UK. Please note this is provided outside of the Esri Chest agreement and is unsupported.
Trouble licensing our technology for personal computers?
Esri UK is delighted to again be sponsoring GISRUK. We will be running a session on Thursday 12 April, at 12:30 where we will demo ArcGIS Online. This year the conference will be held from Wednesday 11 to Friday 13 April 2012, hosted by Lancaster University. For more information see their website.
