Sorry but I am confused about when I need a software license
and when I don't. I would be extremely grateful if anyone would
take the time to look through my questions and point me in the
1. If I use Presenter to publish a series of on-demand
presentations to a web site, I guess I need a software license to
design the presentation. However, do I also need a software license
for each concurrent user I expect to view these on-demand
presentations at any given time? The people who will watch the
on-demand presentations are effectively public visitors to our web
site who will simply click on a link and watch the presentation.
2. If I use Trainer (not sure if this is the correct name) to
publish self-paced on-demand training courses to our web site, I
guess I need a software license to design the course. However, do I
also need a licence for each concurrent user who could view these
courses from our public web-site. These courses would NOT be
instructor led and would simply be public visitors to our web site
clicking on a link and going through the course.
3. If I use Trainer to host an instructor led course, do I
need a software license for myself and also each participant?
4. If I host a meeting, do I need a license for myself and
5. If I share my desktop do I need a license for myself and
each participant viewing my desktop? Also, for support purposes,
can a public user allow me to remotely connect to their desktop? If
so, how many licenses do I need?
Sorry about the number of questions but I really want to buy
Connect Professional and I can't get this information through
talking directly to Adobe as I can't get talking to the right
Thanks in advance for any help as it will be greatly
1. You don' need concurrent learner lic for people to watch
the presso. If you want to enroll and track answers, then you will.
To click and watch only, no
2. When you buy Concurrent Learner lic, you effectively are
buying Connect Training - which will create courses, help enroll
and track students, give detailed reports, create curriculums, etc.
Again, the key is if you want to enroll, track answers, and see the
detailed reports = Concurrent Learner lics.
3. Connect Training and the meeting tool (Acrobat Connect
Professional) really don't work that that way together. The lic
needed for you and other for that live meeting are 100% discated by
the ACP lics you buy, not Concurrent Learners/Connect Training.
4. Yes. You can buy meeting space two ways -concurrent use
(how many at one time are in rooms) or named organizer (the ability
to create and host a meeting with X amount of people who can join
in the room).
5. All the meeting lic you purchase covers whatever you want
to do in your meeting rooms, effectively. No to this question.
PM if you need a reseller - there are some great Q3 deals by
Adobe going on right now.
