License enforcement is the process of checking whether a software application has a valid license available to it at runtime. If you do not have enough licenses, a license violation occurs. This is accomplished by a license violation bar in WorkStation and WebStation.
If a client, such as WorkStation or one of the editors, attempts to start and cannot locate an available license, the client does not start.
