The V-Ray licensing system includes a way to "borrow" a license for offline use for a period of two weeks. Borrowing a license means you can still have access to your Chaos Group software without needing a USB dongle or an internet connection.

Note: Borrowing a license reserves one of your floating licenses, making it unavailable to others until you return it. It is recommended that you borrow a license only when necessary.

You can access the Borrow section from the Offline Licensing drop down menu. Once the borrow time expires, you can re-borrow the same licenses again or the system can re-borrow them automatically for you using the AUTO-RENEW LICENSES option.

Using borrowed licenses during the borrow period does not require internet connection. However, internet connection is required to borrow, re-borrow or release licenses






Licenses can be borrowed only from an already activated license server. Follow the instructions for offline activation. Once the activation is successful, you can borrow licenses for offline use following the below steps.
