Node-locked licensing is the standard FreeFlyer licensing scheme, in which each computer must have its own license file, generated based on the hardware information of that computer. Please review the appropriate sections below for your machine:
If a virtual machine is hosting the license, the license may need to use the VDH_UUID host ID. If this is the case, the VM Licensing Service must be installed. Without the Licensing Service installed, the license information displayed by FreeFlyer's report host information command line switch or the license information utility will say "Licensing Service Not Installed" in the VM_UUID and VDH_UUID fields, and a license based off one of these identifiers will not be valid. To use a license keyed off the machine's VDH_UUID on a virtual machine, follow the instructions below for your Operating System to install the VM Licensing Service:

5.The Downgrade/Restore License Tier option allows you to select which tier of FreeFlyer functionality (Engineer or Mission) you would like to use, up to the maximum tier allowed by your license file. This allows users to experiment with the different tiers in order to determine what tier is required for their analysis, or to ensure that their Mission Plans will be compatible with other users that are required to use a lower tier. If your license file includes any Packs, you can enable or disable them here.
6.The View Current License option allows you to see the contents of the registered license file. You are able to copy the contents to the Windows Clipboard, or save the file contents to a text file.
