For Control license: If you are using a control license, Launch LIVE is the only available option.
Clicking Launch LIVE
The level is launched in LIVE mode on the selected machines
for Launch LIVE locally, the level is only launched on the local machine (this is the default, if there is only one machine)
If another level is already running in LIVE mode, the level will be swapped
