What is the difference between stand-alone (workstation) and concurrent licenses?

A stand-alone license is generated with a lock to a single workstation. Thus, it can be used on that workstation only. Whereas, a concurrent license is locked to a network shared folder, which allows using it by multiple workstations concurrently.

In most cases a concurrent license on a network share is the best solution for most users. Allowing a central set of preferences that is shared between all OrthoView clients including central templates, license, user accounts, user preferences & log files.

When using a concurrent license with a network share - a license only needs to be installed once, templates only need to be installed once, users only need to be configured once, users & passwords are the same on all workstations.

When using a stand-alone workstation, each OrthoView installation uses its own templates, users, logs, license etc., so each must be configured at each and every PC where OrthoView is installed. Stand-alone installation is ideal for systems that will not always have access to a central location such as a notebook computer that is used in multiple locations and may not always have access to a server within the hospital or facility.
