Secondary use rights

Some software suppliers offer licensing features for "Home PC – Work PC", "Desktop – Laptop", or "Desktop - Desktop", also referred to as Secondary use rights. With this type of feature, one single license covers two installations of the same application on two separate computers, for instance, one desktop and one laptop.

To manage this feature from a compliance perspective, secondary use rights must be enabled for the application and a connection must be established between the two sibling computers in Snow License Manager. Sibling computers can be specified either manually or by using an automated function that establishes connections based on identified primary users of computers within the same organization. For automated handling of sibling computers, contact Snow Software for implementation in your environment.

Snow License Manager also supports Secondary use rights for TS environments, with locally installed software on rich clients.
