I have installed and activated MagicDraw v16.9 as the administrator. When I had logged into my regular account, MagicDraw asked for a license key file and for the license activation again. How can I escape the license activation on the same machine twice?

The proper way to activate the license is to install the application as the administrator, then to login as a regular user, which will use the tool, and proceed with the license activation process.

The particular user licensing information is stored in the user home directory. So if you want that the application which has already been activated from the administrator account would not require the license activation from the user account on the same machine, you should change the licensing information storage place.

You can store the licensing information in the MagicDraw installation directory (the read-write rights are required).

For the instructions on how to change the configuration files directory, please find the issue "In our company the storage of user home directory is limited. How to force to keep configuration files in other directory?"

Note: It is important to know that the MagicDraw seat license can be used by a single user only.
