FlexLM Tools

Hello,
Under my Toon boom animate pro folder (ToonBoom Animate Pro/license Tools) i find this: FlexLM Tools and i wondering about that. I find nothing about this. What is this exactly?
Thanks and sorry for my english

FLEXlm is the license management software that Toon Boom uses.

okay i see,
However, in this case (i mean the floating license) i wonder if the programme can run correctly without an internet connection because usually i’m working offline.
Thanks again

It runs without being connected to the internet. You just don’t have the benefit of the context sensitive link to Toon Boom through Help. You would rely on local hard drive documentation.

Very well, thank you for your help
