Can you please help unerstand whether we can install Adobe Reader DC on a couple corporate servers? It will only be used by our employees, we will not distribute it. The mechanics behind this would be like this:
1. There are two servers with Windows Server installed on them. They are only accessible within our private network
2. We also have a document workfow software installed on that same very servers
3. Our employees will be working with that software from their own laptop and Adobe Acrobat DC will only be used when they need to open a pdf document
We only install Adobe Reader DC on that two servers and will not install it on user laptops. There will be something like 100 people working with this
Do we need a license for this?
