Question: Can I compile a project on one machine and run it on another when the machines have different size dongles.

Yes. But first consider the following:

The compiler reads [GENERAL]PointLimit from the CITECT.INI file and embeds it into the compiled project.

The Runtime System reads the dongle's point value and compares it to the value from the compiled project. If the values are different then Citect resets the value in the CITECT.INI file to that of the dongle, and if the value in the compiled project is greater then that of the dongle, Citect will shutdown.

To compile a project on one computer and run it on another - when both computers have different sized dongles: Set the parameter [GENERAL]PointLimit in the CITECT.INI file of the computer you are using for the compilation - to the point value of the dongle of the runtime machine - before you compile the project.
