How to add new users to an existing BBx license

Description:

Any time a new serial number or authorization number is received from BASIS, it is required to register the product. This includes adding users or upgrades from earlier versions or products. The BASIS License Manager is required for all multi-users licenses. You may keep the current BASIS License Manager running during the Registration and Installation portions of the procedure to minimally impact running applications. However, it is important to stop the BLM and remove the old license prior to restarting the BLM.
