Installing a FlexNet License

To Activate a FlexNet License:

  1. Install MDK-ARM on the workstation. Administration rights are required.
  2. Connect the workstation to the network in case of a floating license.
  3. For floating licenses you need to obtain the URL from the system administrator. The URL should have the form portNumber@hostServer.

    Ensure the firewall is not blocking the port or application.

  4. For node locked licenses you need to obtain a license file and store it on your machine.

    • Red records identify FlexNet Licenses that cannot be used. The licenses are all in use by other parties or the FlexNet License Server cannot be accessed.
    • Black records identify available licenses to choose from. Any of these records can be made active (but only one at a time).
    • Gray records show the licenses installed locally.

Once the FlexNet License has been installed, you can Check out (borrow) the license for an extended period.

The button Used By shows a list of users that are working with the selected license.
