Control Description
Second use on work laptop

Select when the license allows software installed on a user's desktop computer, to have a second copy installed on a portable work computer operated by the same user. Computers where the installation has been calculated as a second use will not consume a license entitlement, and will show an Exemption Reason of Second use in:

  • Appropriate reports
  • The Licenses tab of the asset property sheet
  • The Computers tab of the license property sheet.

By default, the Exemption Reason column is available in the column chooser.

To be eligible for the right of second use, a user must be the primary or assigned user of a computer that has one of these chassis types:

  • Laptop
  • Notebook
  • Other Hand Held
  • Portable
  • Sub Notebook
  • Tablet.

Virtual machines cannot participate in this right, neither as the primary nor supplementary computer.

Second use at home (not tracked) Select this check box to grant the right for second use from home by installing the software on a personal computer.

Home computers are not inventoried by enterprise management systems, and hence FlexNet Manager Suite cannot reconcile these cases of second use. This setting is provided for your convenience in recording the special conditions of this license.
