The Creo Elements/Direct (formerly CoCreate) License Server is necessary to enable Creo Elements/Direct products to run. It runs under Windows operating systems or HP-UX and is a robust and reliable service. Licenses are supplied by High Peak Systems/CoCreate and enabled via the License Server application.
The License Server is usually run in conjunction with a physical device such as the MAC Address of a LAN device or a special MSU dongle and the licenses are specific to this device.
In addition to the standard license server product, two additional chargeable products are available.
