Borrow license from Zoo


#1

Is it possible to borrow a Bongo license from the Zoo?

Best regards,
Lambertus

While connected to the Zoo with Bongo loaded, try the command, “BongoCheckOutLicense”. The ability to check out licenses needs to be enabled on the Zoo console.
After checking out a license, the Zoo console will show the license status.
When the computer returns to the network, start Rhino again and run “BongoCheckInLicense”

The Rhino equivalents are CheckOutLicense and CheckInLicense.

Good luck

Hi John,

There is no “BongoCheckOutLicense” command available.
I have checked the Zoo and check out licenses is enabled.

Best regards,

Lambertus,

John’s advice is for Bongo 1.0, so if you’re using Bongo 2.0 it won’t work.
Bongo 2.0 works with the new Rhino 5 license manager and therefore a little bit different. If you type in CheckOutLicense, or go to Tools > Options > Licenses, you can see your licenses and choose to check out or check in the licenses that are available.

Hi Marika,

Thanks! That works.
You have to start Bongo > Animate and then start “CheckOutLicense”.

Best regards,
Lambertus
