RPE License “time out”

RPE Launcher and Studio consume RPE licenses so any instance left open over night can prevent other users from the organization from using RPE. To address this problem we have implemented since RPE 1.2.1 a timeout mechanism which releases the RPE licenses if RPE Launcher/Studio is idle for more than 60 minutes.

NOTE: the timeout interval cannot be changed.

Once RPE Launcher/Studio has been idle for more than 60 minutes the license is checked-in and a the user is prompted to either close the application or check-out the license again and continue working with RPE.

  1. Hi Dragos,

    Is there a setting that allows that period to be modified to something smaller for example?

    Kind regards,


  2. That being said please feel free to raise an RFE for this value to be reduced. A certain minimal threshold will always exist but maybe the current value is too high. Also I expect that having this value customizable is of minimal interest as everyone would set the value to the accepted minimum.
