Pix4D licenses

Pix4D floating licenses

Pix4D licenses are floating licenses that allow one to:

  • Be logged in to a Pix4D application on one or more devices (laptop or desktop machine) at the same time. The number of devices depends on the license.
  • Install Pix4D desktop software on as many computers as wanted without the need to uninstall Pix4D desktop software to move the license to another computer.

If you are already using the software on the maximum number of seats allowed by your license (for instance two), it is not possible to log into the Pix4D desktop application on a third computer at the same time.

To free a seat, simply log out of the software on the computer you currently use your license on and log into the Pix4D app on the new computer of your choice. Learn more about How to log out of Pix4Dmapper.
If you do not have access to the computer currently using one of your multiple seats, you can remotely deactivate a device. Learn more about how to remotely deactivate a device.
