Rhino installation and licensing

First option: cloud license

After clicking on the gear wheel on the first page of the installer you can also choose the licensing mode. The recommended and default mode is licensing through your Rhino Account / Clood Zoo, which requires the creation of an online account and allows you to log on to Rhino 8 from any computer without entering the license key. This also allows you to use both Rhino for Windows and Rhino for macOS on different computers (two licenses are not necessary). You add the license key sent by email (beginning with RH80) to your Rhino Account only once. You don’t need a constant internet connection – connecting once a week is enough (you can check the offline access period in Options – Licenses). You can also create Teams of users who can use a particular group of commecial licenses. You can log on to (or create) a Rhino Account at https://accounts.rhino3d.com

Second option: one computer (standalone)

The second licensing option involves the installation of one Rhino license only on one computer. On the first page of the installer, click the gear wheel and select This computer.

Third option: local network

The third licensing option involves a floating network license (just like in older Rhino versions, through the normal Zoo). In this case, you can access the license from different computers within a local network. One license can be used by one user at any given time. You can install Rhino using the floating network license via the free Zoo license manager for Windows. Find out more about installation and licensing at wiki.mcneel.com/zoo/home

The licensing mode chosen during the first installation can later be changed. You can read about it here.

More details concerning the licensing modes are available at:

You can convert an evaluation version that you installed earlier in a final Rhino version (Help – About Rhinoceros – License).
