More information

Installing the Acronis License Server on Windows Home editions is not possible and remote connection to the Acronis Agents installed on Windows Home editions are disabled. See also Operating Systems Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Supports. Thus using the Standalone version without Acronis License Server is recommended on these platforms.

In addition, we recommend to use the Standalone version on notebooks that can not connect to the corporate license server at least every 30 days (see Using Acronis License Server).

After uninstalling Acronis Management Server you may also uninstall the Acronis "MS SQL Server 2005" Express instance via the Control Panel.

Also, after uninstalling Acronis Management Server, you may disable the SQL Server (ACRONIS) service (Start-Run -> services.msc -> Disable).
