I assume you are talking about ME Studio (the editor). As with all FT license, there's no limit of how many users but only one user can use one license at a time. You can have as many users using it as you have license seats.

Is FT ME version9 also applicable?

Yes,

I feel there's something I'm not getting here. As most software licence, it's one user per license or seat. With Rockwell FT Activation, one can have one license SERVER hold several licenses and client machines can point to the license server and grab the license when the user opens up the application. Once all the seats has been taken, no more user can open up the application unless one or more of the users drops off.

Thanks for your input and sorry for my late response please!
According to your statement; ''Once all the seats has been taken, no more user can open up the application unless one or more of the users drops off''.
MY QUESTION IS:
1. How many (max) seats are allocated for FT ME 9 concurrent permanent License Type?
2. By Dropping off, you mean uninstalling?

In that case, Hope there won't be any License issue, when I uninstall from my own PC then install same License into my client's PC or Panel?

It is easy to understand. You need 1 licence for each version you wish to use at the same time. If you need to move the licence around a lot you should consider the special licence usb dongle

Really? We bought for a client but I want to work along the project with my colleague during the time he is not using he's (probably at night with my own PC) so that when we are ready to Transfer project to Panel, then I will uninstall/remove mine out of my PC. Can this activity render our client's License invalid? sorry for my too many questions, I just want to eliminate doubt since we do not have the dongle(software is already purchased. LICENSE TYPE IS CONCURRENT).

Open factory talk activation manager. See how many users are licensed. Concurrent means 1 license can have x users. x can be 1 or more, depends on what you buy.

You may get a grace mode when you lose your activation where you can use the software for 7 days, but i wouldnt guarantee that.
