VisualARQ Zoo plug-inThe VisualARQ Zoo plug-in lets you share VisualARQ licenses (product keys) among users on the same network workgroup. The VisualARQ Zoo plug-in is available for Zoo 7, Zoo 6 and Zoo 5: Requirements:
- Rhino 5 SR14 (or later) (32 or 64-bit), Rhino 6 SR14 (or later), or Rhino 7 SR0 (or later).
- Zoo 7 – License Manager (or later). (Download)
- VisualARQ 2
How does it work?When VisualARQ is installed as a workgroup node instead of stand-alone, it works like this:
- When a workgroup node starts, it requests a license from the Zoo.
- An unused license is assigned to the node.
- When a node shuts down, the license is returned to the Zoo license pool.
