Is it possible to use a single-user dongle (hardlock or softlock) on a virtual machine or via Remote Desktop?


Unfortunately, this is not possible. Both the access via Remote Desktop and the use of virtualization software are planned and blocked.

The solution to this problem is to use a network dongle. In this way, you can also access the license by using Remote Desktop or a VM. Please inform yourself at our sales department about a dongle conversion.
