Is it possible to activate multiple seats with single serial number?

Yes. If you obtained multi seat license you can activate Kobi Toolkit on as many computers as your license was issued for.

You can store your serial number and activation user data in ASCII license.lic file. Please find the file structure below.

Email=

Once you have the license.lic file populated you need to copy it on each computer in following folder: 
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\KobiToolkitForCivil3D.bundle\Contents\Resources\

The license will be activated upon first run of the command. This process will take some seconds and the internet connection is needed to successfully finish the activation.
