License Server - Return a Borrowed License Early

This document is a help and a guide for how to setup a license server to be able to return borrowed licenses earlier than the set-out-date. Keep in mind:

- All arrangements to return the borrowed licenses early must be made before initiating license borrowing. Before borrowing a license from the server, you must set the environment variable PRO_ALLOW_EARLY_RETURN to true to return that license early. If you frequently return licenses early, then permanently set the environment variable using the System Properties dialog box.

Note: Setting the PRO_ALLOW_EARLY_RETURN environment variable has no effect on an un borrowed license.
