MAPublisher Compatibility by FME
MAPublisher LabelPro Licensing Configurations
|MAPublisher License||MAPublisher LabelPro License|
|Permanent Floating||Evaluation Floating||Permanent
Fixed licenses are node-locked licenses that can only be used on one machine. See more about MAPublisher License Management.
Floating licenses allow you to place a specified number of licenses on a server that can be checked out by numerous client machines. All floating licenses are created by Avenza Sales and cannot be created or retrieved from the licensing server through the MAPublisher License Management dialog box.
Supported licensing configurations can be registered and the licenses retrieved through the MAPublisher License Management dialog.
Unsupported licensing configurations cannot be used and will not work with MAPublisher and LabelPro.
Restricted licensing configurations cannot be registered and the licenses cannot be retrieved through the MAPublisher License Management dialog. Please contact Avenza for more information.
MAPublisher FME Auto Compatibility
|Adobe Illustrator/MAPublisher||FME Desktop|
1 MAPublisher must be extended by FME (see the FME Integration Console)
1 No, unless MAPublisher is extended by another FME 32-bit install option or the 32-bit redistributable package is installed.
2 No, unless MAPublisher is extended by another FME 64-bit install option or the 64-bit redistributable package is installed.
Unfortunately, the information here doesn't seem to be entirely correct, because MAPublisher 10.9.0 is not compatible with Illustrator 25.4.1 (64-bit). A message is displayed that the MAPublisher is not compatible and the license (floating) cannot be checked out.
Sorry to hear you are having issues getting your floating license checked out. This should not be related to compatibility as we are compatible with version 25.4.1 (Illustrator 2021), and as such there is likely something else going on. We are going to convert this post to a support ticket so that we can get some further information and get this resolved for you!
