Does any of you use any commercial software, FlexLM licensed, that offers a license borrowing capability?

I am not sure what you mean by license borrowing. However, I use star-cd which uses FlexLM license. It is possible to have the license on one computer in the network and access it from another computer on the network to run star from the computer without the license. Tom

That sounds like a floating license. License borrowing allows for a license to be checked out of a network, e.g. taking a laptop to go show some results on another site.

Its an interesting idea, but I am not aware of anything in Flexlm that allows that kind of behavior nor have I ever seen anybody else do it.

I've read about this capability in the FlexLM users manual. The mesh genarator gridgen makes use of this feature afaik. Nevertheless, I've never testet this capbility of gridgen/FlexLM.

Yes, FLEXlm supports a feature called license borrowing. For example, if you have 5 licenses at work but want to run the software on your laptop at home, you can borrow one of the 5 licenses for a period of time that you specify. This is mentioned in the FLEXlm support area on www.flexlm.com.

Yes, Gridgen uses FLEXlm's license borrowing and several customers have used it to great advantage.

Hope this helps.
