Info
Important
You cannot check in a license that was checked out using Remote Check Out before its check-out period has expired. You set the check-out period when you check out a license. To see how many days are left on a commuter license, in the License Server list in the top part of the Vicon Automated Unified Product Licensing Tool dialog box, find the relevant license and look at the date in the Expiry column.
