Hi

I have a standard Photoshop license that i am using in a corporate environment.

Given this, am i able to install it on a virtual machine, and then have people connect to it via remote desktop and use the software as required?

Or is this cheating?

That would be a clear violation of the license.

And a recipe for performance difficulties. One user on one computer can tax the software. Trying to run several users would be chaos.

Hi. The users would not be connecting at the same time. just whenever they need it. does that change anything?

thanks Bob, we’ll purchase another license.

This usage scenario would work quite well for us it were possible so I wonder if Software vendors will start introducing products with a licensing scheme to deal with this type scenario. I guess that’s a debate for a different forum….

there must be others out there who have come across this issue because we are visualizing a lot of our servers and increasingly desktops

I think that as long as only one person is running the software at one time, you would be ok. If the software is registered to the company, any of it’s employees should be able to use one instance of the software. If you have a way to ensure that only one instance of the software runs at any one time, your company would be fine.
