Online license


The "Online" license type allows you to use the license for BimStep plug-ins on multiple machines with the option to transfer between them. The "Online" license works as follows:

  1. To activate the plugin, you use a login and password. The login is your email address specified when purchasing the plugin, and the password is automatically generated and sent to the email address specified when purchasing the plugin.

  2. With login and password you can take one available license slot to work with plugins. An Internet connection is required at this point.

  3. You can then work with the plugins without an internet connection for the duration of the license.

  4. If you want to free a license slot to take it on another machine, you have to manually click on the "Deactivate" button and the license slot will be released and you can take it on another machine. An Internet connection is required at this point.

Important. When working with an online license it is not automatically released, so you must release it manually. The same applies when you change the operating system or reinstall Revit. I.e. before all reinstallations of the system and the program you must deactivate the license manually, otherwise it will burn out and you will not be able to restore it.
