Sorry this took longer than I had hoped, however here is a list of links to useful information as you and your customers migrate to Arbortext 6.0. I hope all the links carry over, if any users have issues, please contact me directly (-) and I will email you this information.
As always, feel free to direct any additional questions to me.
Also, as you request your licenses, and see longer wait times (Paul Nagai), please forward me the SalesForce email you recieve. There may be high usage times where your wait may be longer, an hour is longer than I would expect though, as such, I would like to have our Web IT look into it.

Upgrade/Migration path for Remote Desktop users
Flexera requires concurrent licensing within a remote desktop environment. The Arbortext 5.4 and prior licensing was not as strick. If you need to use Arbortext 6.0 within a remote desktop and currently own Fixed/Locked licenses, contact your PTC Sales Rep. Your Sales Rep will guide you through the steps to upgrade your licenses.

Thanks for posting, Susan. I was coincidentally having some issues updating a license for Editor last week. I got it resolved, but it took having to reinstall Flex a couple times.
