A new release of SOLO Server was deployed for all Instant SOLO Server Shared URL and Instant SOLO Server Dedicated URL customers.
Depending upon the menu of licensing options a software vendor makes available to its customers, it may be occasionally necessary to specify an initial limit on the number of users, seats, or credits associated with a given License ID generated through use of SOLO Server. This initial limit, defined in SOLO Server as the Quantity value, is an arbitrary numeric value assigned to the License ID and is “passed down” (or supplied) to the licensed application during the software activation process. The Quantity value, as determined by the software vendor, may vary on a customer-by-customer or license-by-license basis.
For example, your software may be licensed according to the total number of named users in a database, or perhaps according to an initial total of prepaid credits which are consumed by the application over time or on a per-use basis (i.e., a decrementing counter). The License Counter field on the License Details page can be effectively utilized by SOLO Server authors to further define this license-specific parameter and is an extremely powerful feature for Protection PLUS 5 API users.
