Altium Designer Standalone Licenses

Standalone licenses are limited to the single site license type and can only be used by one user or workstation. According to the EULA, Altium does allow a temporary install of the standalone license file on a laptop or home computer for temporary usage. With a Standalone license you don’t need internet access, the only time you need to sign in to your Altium account (through the Altium portal), is when you initially activate the license through Altium Designer or if you are also leveraging the extended features available with an Altium 365® subscription.

Activate license

The Activate Standalone License dialog — Standalone licenses are installed locally onto the computer by activating the license through the user’s AltiumLive account, or downloading the *.alf license file from the AltiumLive Dashboard and adding it in the License Management view in Altium Designer.
