Borrow a License in ArcGIS 10.1 and 10.2

Introduction

License Borrowing is supported for disconnected use (away from UW Campus). To borrow a license for up to one academic year, use the “Borrow/Return” folder in the ArcGIS Administrator Utility. Licenses can be borrowed from 1 to 365 days. All licenses expire 8/14 and a connection will need to be made to UW License server to obtain a new license.

Procedure

  1. Start the ArcGIS Administrator Utility by going to the Start button – All ProgramsArcGISArcGIS Administrator.

  3. If the License Manager is not set to 27008@uwesrilicense.uwyo.edu, click the Change button and correct the License Manager. Click OK.

  4. Click on the Borrow/Return folder and select the check box to the right of the product you wish to borrow. Select how long you wish to borrow the license and click OK.

    NOTE: We ask that you DO NOT borrow a VBA extension unless it is absolutely necessary given that UW only has a small number of provisional licenses available for users who are migrating Visual Basic scripts.

  5. If the license is successfully borrowed the window will close without error.
