Hi community,

I have a question regarding the use of arcengine single use license cuncurrently by two different applications.

Say we have app A and app B and a custom arcEngine GIS that app A and app B can load and work with. When we run app A the GIS loads and works fine. When we run another instance of app A the GIS still works on both. When we run an instance of app B having one or more instances of app A running the GIS will not load and will show busy. You can sit hours waiting nothing will happend unless you close all of the instances of app A. Then the GIS on app B will pick up and load.

Does ESRI treat different applications as different computers?

Thanks for any info on this.
