Hi

I believe you do need to reinstall the software to move between the different versions of RTC. Hopefully someone will be able to confirm this.

I am not aware of any way to extend the max user limit. This is part of the server limits.

The only way I can think of to raise the user limit directly is to install a higher-level versions (ie if you have Express-C, install Express; if you have Express, install Standard).

There is one other option If you have more than one project, you might want to create a project on a new repository - that might free up licenses on the original server (but you would need a new server license for a second repository, and new client licenses for additional users).

regards

Anthony, you're answers are all correct.

Using new servers to hold new projects is exactly the right way to deal
with the server limits.
