Probably worth mentioning/checking .. it is worthwhile hosting the licenses on a server, then client PC's can consume them. And a single PC doesn't have to consume all licenses depending on your config.
So Publisher Pro (assuming you have Pro) will work with Cyclone Core - as well as Register360. So you could have PC publishing a point cloud with the Publisher license and another PC doing a registration with the Register license - potentially doubling your throughput.
The opening sequence does matter though - Register360 will (used to?) hog a publisher license even though it might not have been publishing. Likewise Register during publishing.
Have you got CCP/maintenance? There are videos in MyWorld. Also plenty of videos on YouTube around the traps.
So the licenses in general aren't entire packages, but entitlements within a package. So Cyclone for example can have Register, Model, Publisher, Basic etc .. the licenses basically turn on menu options. Likewise in Register360 - with publisher you can spit out LGS. Pro version I think lets you go straight to Recap? They changed it a bit a few months back and I haven't looked at the differences to be fair.
It is quite a rabbit hole .. you get kind of used to it after the first decade ;-p
This office does not have a "server", other than the NAS which does not run Windows. I'm trying to dig up an RPi or NUC or something that I can use as a ghetto server for now, but in the short term, the licenses are installed on the laptop I mentioned in a floating license server (I avoided the nodelocked one, mostly because it had the word "locked" in it). Running Register 360 on any PC in the office borrows a license off the laptop server, once you point to it. I did acquire a license off the laptop using the new-to-me PC I found, but I haven't checked if the Publisher-enabled features work on that PC as well, but I'd assume it does. The tablet seems to be happy generally, since it only asked for a license twice, one time where it did not have access to the "server".
I do have access to myWorld, and we have maintenance for a year. I lose my Publisher (non-pro) license on the 22nd though, so at that point (hopefully before that), we will have to have the conversation about what licenses I actually "need", which is why I am REALLY trying to get on top of figuring this stuff out. When I added the Publisher entitlement, I originally didn't notice that the LGS option is no longer greyed, along with the JetStream Enterprise option, but I have no idea what that is. For your information, I can go straight to RCP with Register 360, without having the Publisher entitlement. Not sure if that feature is enabled by some other license I have.
It sounds like quite the rabbit hole for sure. I figure a month from now, I'll basically know everything, so that'll be nice
