Floating license

Floating licenses can be deployed in two different ways.

Floating licenses are only available for legacy perpetual licenses. Subscriptions cannot be used for floating licenses.

Using one file for multiple computers


  1. Put the license.key file in a shared mounted network
  2. Set the environment variable to point to the license file. See : Environment variables

Using one license per computer

Install the license.key file on each computer, in the following folder:

Windows: C:/ProgramData/Allegorithmic/Substance Painter/license.key
MacOS: /Library/Application Support/Allegorithmic/Substance Painter/license.key
Linux: /opt/Allegorithmic/etc/Substance Painter/license.key

This method will require to re-install the license files on each computer in case of an update of the license in the future.
