Preventing Users from claiming a Spindle license

This article will describe how to stop a certain machine or user from claiming a Spindle license when they log into their PC. This can be handy for machines which require Spindle installed but do not require access to print to Spindle Pro or Spindle Pro Auto.

Configuring this function

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Draycir\Spindle Document Distribution"


  1. Locate the program "SpindleDocumentDistributionTSConfig.exe and then Right-Click this and select "Run as Administrator"


  1. Select the relevant option for what you would like to achieve:
    1. Remove Local Mahine will prevent that specific machine from claiming a Spindle license no matter who is logged in
    2. Remove User will prevent the logged in user from claiming a Spindle license on that specific PC - this does not apply to other PCs


  1. Press Exit once you have made the relevant changes to the configuration
If you require a user or machine to use Spindle again, you can follow this same process but instead of Remove, select Add.
