What is a seat?

A seat is one computer user as determined by the home folder or directory of the current user, whether the home folder is stored on the local hard drive, or on the network. You will need to buy a "seat" for each user account that will run the software. The license code determines the number of seats and the length of time the program can be used; you do not need a separate license code for each seat.

Network Administration

If you are using any protection and administration software that resets user files (such as CleanSlate), you will need to exclude this folder (Vista, Windows 7 & 8): C:\Users\ (currentuser) \AppData\Roaming\iShell\cache-cache where (currentuser) is the primary user folder for that machine. Or C:\Documents and Settings\(currentuser)\Application Data\iShell\cache-cache (XP) If you are not sure where to find the cache-cache folder, you can select Preferences in the program and then Software Update the location of the cache-cache folder is specified there.
