Depending on the license type, your copy of NiceLabel 10 may be limited to a specific number of printers you can use simultaneously. In case of a multi-user license, keeps track of the number and names of different printers you have used for printing on all NiceLabel clients in your network. The unique printer identifier is a combination of printer driver name (not printer name), printer location, and port.

"To use a printer" means that one of the below listed actions has been taken within a solution:

Each of these actions signalizes that a printer has been used. The associated printer is added to the list of used printers and remains listed for 7 days from the last usage. To remove a printer from the list, do not use it for a period of 7 days and it will be automatically removed. The software will display the Last Used information so you know when the 7-day will pass for each printer. You can bind a printer seat with a specific printer, by clicking the Reserved checkbox. This will ensure the printer availability at all times.


If you exceed the number of seats defined by your license, the software enters a 30-day grace period. While in this mode, the number or allowed printers is temporarily incremented to twice the number of purchased seats.

Grace period provides plenty of time to resolve the licensing problems without any printing downtime or loss of the ability to design labels. This is usually an effect of replacing printers in your environment, when the old and new printers are used simultaneously, or when you add new printers. If you do not resolve a license violation within the grace period, the number of available printers will be reduced to the number of purchased seats starting from the recently used printers that are visible on the list.
