I was using Rhino on my desktop. Went away leaving three instances running. Had to run Rhino briefly on my laptop. Licensing handling this as designed.
When I came back to the desktop the “Your license is or was in use on…” popup was waiting. No problem, say yes to “Do you want to keep using Rhino 7 here”. System goes to fetch license from Zoo as normal, then spots my internet connection is down and tells me it can’t reach license servers.
As I can’t fix that immediately I am resigned to shutting Rhino down for a while, so this time I say no to the question. Rhino still tries to contact the license servers (to return the licence it couldn’t fetch!) and pops up another dialogue to say it couldn’t reach them. When I acknowledge it I am back at the Licensing popup.
So neither Yes nor No change my situation. If I try to close the popup window, Rhino tries to contact the License servers, fails and presents the same old dialogue. Acknowledge, back to the popup which has focus, so I can’t shut down Rhino or, more importantly, save my work until my Internet connection is restored.
If I click No to “Do you want to keep using Rhino 7 here?” I expect Rhino to shut down after offering me the option to save my work, not leave me in limbo. Please could something be done about this?
