What type of licensing is supported by X-Win32?

X-Win32 has two different type of licensing:

  • Node-locked licenses registers an individual PC.  Node-locked licenses uses the hostid of the PC to register. (license example: xxxxxx-xxxxxxx)
  • Concurrent (floating) licenses utilizes a license server in order to manage the licensing. A license is used when a user successfully launches a session.  The license is freed once the user terminates all their sessions. (license example: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx)


In X-Win32 19 or higher, how do I remove the session window option that appears after I start a session?

In X-Config under the “Window” tab, check box “Show X-Win32 menu in notification area“.  This will move X-Win32 from the task bar to the system tray after a session is launched.  Session window options are still available by right clicking on the X-Win32 icon in the system tray.
