Licensing - What is a node-locked license?

Description

What is a node-locked license?

What are the various parts of the license?

Solution

A node-locked license is an encrypted "key" that is locked to a specific machine or dongle.

The license is uncounted, meaning that there can be an unlimited number of simultaneous runs (by any user) on the single machine.
