License Collision Detected error (Windows host + Linux VM)


My company has purchased a commercial licence (for multiple users) for the All Products Pack.

One of my coworkers first installed PyCharm in a Linux VM (which works fine), and has just now installed Rider on the Windows host. However, after a short interval, he gets a "License Collision Detected" error message on Windows, saying that his "license is being used".

Please can you advise how individual users can run products on both a host machine and inside a VM simultaneously?


How do I change the login user name? Windows 11 shortened my name to 5 characters and I think PHPStorm is using that instead of the correct name.


It's not working. Is there a place in PHPStorm where I can change the user name?
