License detaching

Note: please inform REQTEAM if you plan to use detaching, so the license can be generated for this purpose.

When users want to have a working copy of ReqEdit outside the restricted environment. License detaching is possible by using the Detach Tool Add-on.

Detaching licenses will lock the license for a period of time for a specific machine. Locking a license has to be done inside the restricted environment, after which it can be disconnected from the network.
