Howto unblock (release) a floating license?

Post by Weissvonnix » Mon Mar 27, 2017 3:04 pm

Hi all,
I want to know how I or our administrator can unlock a floating license via the Ranorex License Manager?

  • User A starts Ranorex Studio using one Floating license
  • User A leaves his Computer (while Ranorex Studio is running) and goes home
  • User B wants to start Ranorex Studio using the Floating license which is blocked by User A
  • certain persons (i.e. Administrator) with access to lic manager can close active connections manually
  • set locked floating license free manually via license manager
Please ask me if anything is unclear.

Thank you in advance.
my environment:
Ranorex = 9.2.0
.NET = 4.0.30319.42000
OS = Win 10 DE (x64)

As far as I know, there is currently no way to release the Ranorex license manually (other than terminate Ranorex/Spy on given PC). You may request a feature enhancement here: ... ve-ranorex
