Automated install (w/ license) for student lab

Greetings all,

We're going to start adding Python to our intro courses at the university I teach at and we are excited to use PyCharm in the courses.

We were wondering if there is a mechanism to do an automated install of PyCharm AND include the license with it.  We need to push PyCharm to a large number of systems in our computer lab and it would be great if there was a way to do this that did not involve our tech having to manually add the license on each machine.  (For various reasons, it does need to be an install - we don't just have a ghost image that we push to all our lab machines).

All our usual tricks aren't working - I'm guessing the license ends up in the registry somewhere?

Any thoughts are most appreciated!

Cheers,

Hello Mark,

The correct way to handle this is to install a license server on the network.

Then each PyCharm installation would be able to get a license key from the

server.

See http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/LS/Home for more information.
