how do i increase my hp with windows 7 pro  from 20 client license to 40
We have a dongle with 37 seat client licence. After traveling 2000 miles to set up system we find out that windows 7 will only allow access to 20 at a time. Do I have other options. I know I can set each as standalone and point to the licenced dongle and would all probably run faster, but they prefer all to be set up as client. All brand new capable computers.

Thanks for any help.

You can't.

Get a real server OS and the appropriate CAL's for it. Or use a Linux Distro as Server OS, then you aren't limited with your connections, and apart from that most Linux distro's are free....

Thanks Rindi,
I suspected that. I know very little about networking but you would think a billion dollar cad/cam company would have thought this through.
Thanks again,
Craig
