For activation using a license file you need to request a license file based on specific hardware ID's of your PC.
If you did not receive an activationID together with your product, you need to request a certificate-based license, a license.lic file. To use certificate-based licensing only a license file is needed. License files can be used to hold nodelocked, single user licenses. This license is fixed to a specific hardware ID of your PC. To provide this hardware ID you need to retrieve the host ID.
Return the ipconfig.txt together with your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
After receiving this node locked license file from MARIN save it at the same location as all executables or DLLs from the product. Most likely this will be the installation directory of the product. If you decide to put the node locked license file in a different location keep in mind the sequence for finding a license file.
After saving the license file into the installation directory of the product no further action is needed. The MARIN product should be able to find the license once the product is started.
If the MARIN software product was not able to find the license, you need to set the license environment variable:
Sequence for finding a license file
- When the MARINLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable has been set, then items in this environment variable are searched in order.
- When the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable has been set, then items in this environment variable are searched in order.
- When the FlexNET windows register key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\FLEXlm License Manager] MARINLMD_LICENSE_FILE has been set, then items in this key are searched in order
