How to start more PROMOTIC applications on one computer
It is possible to run multiple PROMOTIC applications simultaneously in your system.
The Application (development environment or runtime) can be launched as needed - see How to start PROMOTIC application.
Caution: There is an exception for PmFree - Free development environment and a runtime license of the PROMOTIC system (freeware mode) applications. The application in freeware mode cannot run if there is any other PROMOTIC application already runnig on the computer.
of such applications can be managed the following ways:
- All applications can use single common HW Key
- Each application can use individual HW Key
- All applications can use licenses from license server PmNetKey
, where each application must have its own corresponding license.
For each application it is possible to use its in the application INI file in order to define which license to use - see Description of keys in the [Licence] section.
If it is required to start more runtime applications concurrently after starting the computer (the application consists from several parts, for example, the server and client) and then to ensure that the server is started first and then the client with a delay, then the utility RunLater
can be used for the delayed start of the program.
