Soft-Lock License is not applied to the bound devices with the same username as the Cloud License #
With a soft-lock license, users can register multiple licenses under a single user account, a concept referred to as concurrent device binding.
Users who opt for a soft-lock license only need to perform a one-time binding process for all concurrent devices, allowing them to launch the MiTS 2 software simultaneously. For more details on how to activate the license, please refer to the “Guidelines for the New Soft-Lock & Cloud License”.
If users possess both cloud and soft-lock licenses registered under the same username, they may encounter issues when attempting to launch the software on multiple devices. Only one of the devices will succeed at one time, while the others will encounter an error indicating the hardlock is missing.
In this scenario, the cloud license will take precedence and be utilized for software launch. It’s important to note that the cloud license permits usage on a single device at a time. To determine the type of license in use, users may,
Launch the software > Navigate to the ‘Help’ tab > Click on Hardlock
To resolve the issue, users can simply log out from their Virbox account after successfully completing the binding process and launch the software as usual. Once the license is bound to the machine, users will no longer required to remain logged into their account or maintain an internet connection, in contrast to using the cloud license.
