My one shows ok. This just shows total used. If however I have decommissioned say x3, how does the licence know this i.e. that they are no longer used and return the X3 to my count? There is nowhere that shows the PC's that it is installed on?
Perhaps I am missing the obvious (apologies for this if this is the case)?

Precisely. it is commercial use and in most cases "paid for" by the companies who registers it. I am not sure why you are suggesting that you would be "Providing the license for free"
I wasn't asking specifically for e.g. 40 Free. I was enquiring on whether it was possible to "add" a mix of Paid and Free hosts to my viewer in times of need eg they require support. Example:
Company A & B: 15 each paid: (Total 30 Paid) Company C: X4 Free (Total 4 Free) Family A, B,C,D X2 Free each (Total 8 Free)
Above example is made up of three companies & four family individuals of which 30 are paid for and 12 are free. I suspect you are saying that I need to be the one that "Purchases" 42 licences on behalf of the above and register under my account which (in my specific case) would not work. I totally understand and needed to check before heading down this path. Its a great product and am sure the Licencing model will work for single companies. Cheers
Agreed. A FAQ would be good as what may seem obvious to some isn't so obvious to others (like me)! You must be frustrated with what should be "Obvious". A set of examples showing different scenarios would be good.
All I wanted to check prior to recommending the Free and Paid versions to clients is that I (selfishly) can have access to all 40 PCs in my viewer (made up of different accounts from different users.....some having Paid versions some using the Free versions). I appreciate the HOSTs contains the licence and not the viewer. Thanks for that and will watch out for a FAQ....and other posts. So far "Remote Utilities" looks/feels fantastic in my tests over last few days.
Hi Conrad. In my case, I may have example 20 companies that I support, all small (ranging fr om a few PCs) to say 20 PCs. With LMI I could manage them all at no cost to me. It was up to them to purchase (wh ere required). I just connect using their account and can see their PC's or invite myself as an admin and see a list of each company using my LMI Ignition. What I am trying to determine is if Remote Utilities will work for my needs (whether it be Free or Paid). I appreciate that you are a different product.
Scenario: I may get a call for any one of my clients looking for remote support. If say these companies buy their "Own" Remote Utilities Licences, will this allow me to connect to them using my viewer (keeping in mind these are all individual companies). In short: I would need to be able to see e.g. 40 PC's in my Viewer (all registered to different companies). Hope that makes sense.
Ah ha. That did the trick. Thanks for that as had me head scratiching and plying with settings but didn't look at "alpha-blending"! Actually this was also an issue if opening the Remote Utilities Config settings from next to clock. One could open it but not select the Drop down to show the settings. All is well now. Thanks again.
Hi, When I open Log-Me-In from the bottom right (next to clock) the configuration page should appear on the main screen but doesn't. It shows as though it is open looking at the Task bar as I can see the Icon. As a Test, If I connect to the PC using MS RDP and check, I can see the LMI App screen without issue. I have tested this on 2 PC's (XP and Win7) and same problem exists.
Why is Remote Utilities hiding this app from showing on main screen?
PS: I checked other APPs located near the clock and when double clicked them they open and show fine.
Late Addition Note: I noticed if I open another App and sel ect to run as "administrator" . At the point of it asking for credentials, the rest of the screen goes out of focus (normal) while waiting for me to enter Admin credentials. "Now" I can see the LMI config window showing in the background, so its definitely there however hidden fr om being viewed once the screen returns back to Focus. I hope this makes sense as hard to explain!
