How the License Scheme works

BEAM PRO uses a floating licensing scheme and will consume a license from your account only when an import / export tool is used and release it after a cool-down period.
You must wait this time before the license can be consumed by another machine. The period varies depending on the type of account.
Account type
License range
"Cool-down" License period
BEAM PRO Standard
1-9
5h
BEAM PRO Enterprise
10+
1h
Any account with less than 10 licenses is considered as Standard Account. Any account with more than 10 licenses will be an Enterprise Account
Purchasing more licenses will automatically transform a Standard Account into an Enterprise Account.
Login with your account on multiple machines to make use of all your licenses.

Deployment

The BEAM installer executable can be launched in "very silent" mode, so no dialogs are shown to the user. Below is the command line to do so.
setup.exe /VERYSILENT
Automatic login can be achieved by placing a special encrypted license file ( beam.lic ) after install in a specific folder. You can retrieve this file from an existing installed and logged copy of BEAM in the same location. The location of beam.lic is:
C:\ProgramData\Beam
Once obtained the .lic file, is sufficient to copy it in this directory for the user to automatically login. This operation can be done after the install is complete by a script in your deployment software.
If login credentials are changed the .lic file will need to be regenerated and re-deployed.
