Level:The supported level of the license, usually CLASSROOM, STANDARD, or PROFESSIONAL.

Options to control license usage can be found here. The user has the option to search for Portable licenses or Network licenses, if they have one available for use.


Network Options:Network license checks are done using a standard network query. This query can be disabled, or refined by specifying a server name or IP address to test.
