Multi-user system (Activating additional users on the same system)
pdfToolbox can be operated by multiple users on the same computer.
We’ll show you where to copy the license file to in order to allow multiple users to access pdfToolbox.
pdfToolbox licenses are only bound to a given system, not to specific users.
During activation, the license file is copied to the user preferences of the currently active user.
Please make sure that the user has sufficient write access to this directory.
In order for other users to use this license, the License.txt file must be copied manually to the user preferences of the other users.
To allow other users to work with this license, you must manually copy the License.txt file into the User Preferences for the other user.
The path to the folder where the License.txt is copied to make it available to other individual users is as follows:
/Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Preferences/callas software/callas pdfToolbox <VERSION>
%AppData%\callas software\callas pdfToolbox <VERSION>
It is recommended to store the License.txt in the following path if pdfToolbox should be activated for all users:
/Library/Preferences/callas software/callas pdfToolbox <VERSION>
%allusersprofile%\callas software\callas pdfToolbox <VERSION>
If the pdfaPilot CLI/Server version shall be activated for all users on a system, there are various possibilities. Details can be found in the CLI manual under "Activating pdfToolbox CLI".
