It can happen that when viflow is installed on a terminal server, starting the program activates a viflow license for the IT administrator. This is usually not wanted, since the IT administrator does not normally work with viflow.
To ensure that no license for the IT administrator who installs viflow on the terminal server is "used up", viflow must be stored with the product key on the master and must not be activated there.
The prerequisite is that viflow is installed on the server via administrative installation with a stored product key – we have summarized how this works in the article ››› Silent/administrative installation of viflow.
Afterwards, viflow must not be started on the master, otherwise the logged-in user (usually the IT administrator) will be activated!
Now the master can be rolled out or distributed. The users then start the program on the server and automatically activate viflow for themselves or their login name with the stored software key.
