License Types


The Ideate Software for Revit software license is locked to one user account on a single computer and activated with a license code (see also Standalone Licensing).

Standalone : Activate…
Click to launch the standalone licensing component so you can activate your trial or expired license.
(See also Standalone License Activation)

Standalone : Return…
Click to launch the standalone licensing component so you can return (deactivate) your activated license.  You may then transfer the license to another computer.
(See also Standalone License Transferring)

Note for system admins: Cloning computers with an activated Standalone license is not supported as it could cause the licensing component to become corrupted. Uninstalling and reinstalling the product will likely not fix the condition. Install the software first, activate only once the hardware is assigned to the end user. Please contact Ideate Support for more help if needed.  


Software license is checked out from a network license server (also see Network Licensing).

Network : License Server
If using network licenses, enter the path to your network license server.  Ask you network license administrator for the name of your license server.  The usual format entered is @MyServerName.

Network : Borrow License
