How to set up 100% CPU resources for FDTD simulations?

Hello

I am currently using Lumerical trial license for FDTD in order to decide if the research group I belong to buys some licenses.

Unfortunately during the trails I realized that Lumerical is only using 50% of the simulation PC resources. The specs are the following:

AMD EPYC 7702P

256GB RAM

My doubt is if there is a way to change this? I have already tried following the steps described at:

Ansys Insight: Determine the optimum resource configuration to run Lumerical FDTD simulations

also when I tried to increase the number of threads above 32 I get the following error:

"HQPD-BABY(process 0): Requested more than the 32 allowed HPC units provided by this license." is this error due to the trail license? or Lumerical is limited to 32 threads?

Thanks
